Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny could decide to extend his stay at Roma, according to the head of the Polish FA. Szczesny joined the Giallorossi on a season-long loan spell last summer following the arrival of Petr Cech at the Emirates.
The Poland international has enjoyed a first-team role in Serie A, but previously indicated that his first choice would be to return to the Gunners at the end of the 2015/16 season.
Speaking to Centro Suono Sport, Polish FA chief Zibi Boniek revealed it remains Szczesny's "dream" to return to North London – but believes there is also a chance of him remaining in the Italian capital, or even joining another Premier League side.
"I never meddle with the careers of the national team players, so I do not want to talk much about Szczesny's future," Boniek was quoted as saying by Inside Futbol. "Every time I spoke with him he told me that he is happy in the Italian capital, his only thought is to do well with Roma and move forward with them in the Champions League.
"I know for a fact that if he is not bought by Roma his dream is to return to Arsenal as their number one goalkeeper, but Cech is already doing well, so it is difficult to guess.
"Many Premier League clubs are also interested, but there might be another year on loan at Roma for him, perhaps after signing an extension with Arsenal."
Szczesny, 25, recently hit out at conflicting media reports regarding his future in Italy. Initial reports suggested the goalkeeper was ready to leave the Roma in the summer before contradictory claims emerged stating the club had changed their minds.
In his own effort to dampen the speculation, Szczesny wrote via his Facebook page: "Gotta love the media. "Reporting on 3 completely different stories regarding my future in the space of 24 hours, saying there's been a 'change of heart', a 'U-turn' and a 'turnaround'.
"The only U-turn there's ever been is in your rubbish reporting skills. From Rome, with love, Wojciech."
