The report asserts that Fabio Paratici is a big fan of the 32-year-old and wants to reunite with the player at the North London club.

However, the publication asserts that the Premier League club will not be prepared to pay more than €18m-€20m (£15.7m-£17.5m) for Szczesny. add that such a fee might be enough to convince Juventus to sell the goalkeeper, given his contract situation.

The Old Lady are said to be considering cashing in on the experienced shot-stopper and using the funds to sign either Empoli’s Guglielmo Vicario or Atalanta’s Marco Carnesecchi.

Finally, it is claimed that the Lilywhites would be prepared to offer Szczesny a two-year contract worth €7m (£6.1m) per year, with the option of a third year.

Spurs Web Opinion

Firstly, Szczesny will be 33 years of age next month, which means that he will only be a temporary stop-gap rather than Lloris’ long-term replacement.

Besides, I am not sure that the Pole will want to get into the bad books of Arsenal fans by signing for their North London rivals.
