Arsenal keeper wants to make Roma move permanent

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny wants to make his loan move to Roma permanent.

The Poland international joined the Serie A club on a season-long loan deal in July 2015 following the Gunners' capture of Czech keeper Petr Cech from Chelsea.

Szczesny has helped Roma maintain a top-three position throughout the current Italian championship and two more points will see the Giallorossi secure a Champions League place.

And the 26-year-old feels his future lies in the Eternal City, telling Il Messaggero: "I want to stay.

"It's not all up to me, obviously. I want it to happen, and I know Roma and Arsenal are talking about it, so we'll see what happens.

"I'm happy to have helped the team and winning the title must be the next objective for this club."
