Italian journalist reports have given up on signing Arsenal goalkeeper after being told by the that the Polish has his heart set on a move to Juventus.

Speaking on Italian radio station Radio Marte (via MondoNapoli.it), Di Marzio revealed that president had personally called Arsenal to ask about Szczesny’s situation, only to be told that the 27 year old would likely be moving to Juve:

“De Laurentiis himself contacted Arsenal [about] Szczesny, but there was nothing to be done: the Polish keeper has already chosen Juventus.”

It is believed that Juventus have still yet to agree a transfer fee with the Gunners. Tuttosport are reporting that the Bianconeri are waiting to sell their current number two goalkeeper before reinvesting the money into buying Szczesny.

The Italian newspaper says that Juve hope to get €10-€12m for Neto, with themselves one of the player’s potential destinations, but with Arsenal holding steadfast on their €15million so far, the keeper’s move to Turin is still by no means guaranteed.
