Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has told both the Gunners and AS Roma where he wishes to play next season, but is still waiting for the clubs to decide his future.

Szczesny, 25, left north London during the summer transfer window, joining the Serie A club on a season-long loan deal. Roma would not appear to have any option to make the goalkeeper's stay a permanent one, but the Poland international says he is very happy in the Italian capital and has already made his wishes known.

"Everyone knows I'm really happy here," the goalkeeper told Sky Italia, Goal report.

"I would like to be able to tell you about my future, but I don't know what it holds for me. I have expressed my intentions to the two clubs and now it's up to them. I have to decide what's best for my career."

Szczesny has been a regular in the Roma first-team this season, starting 27 times in the league.

His decision to leave Arsenal was fuelled by the arrival of Petr Cech from Chelsea. The 33-year-old has been Arsenal's regular first choice in goal this season but Arsene Wenger has not been afraid to turn to his deputy David Ospina. Cech recently returned to training following a calf injury that saw him miss seven matches and was fit enough to return to the squad for the 3-3 draw with West Ham United on Saturday 9 April.

However, Wenger decided to stick with Opsina, who had kept clean sheets in his last two games prior to the trip to east London.

Wenger's decision to omit Cech was heavily criticised by supporters on social media ahead of kick off. But speaking to BT Sport post-match, the Arsenal boss defended his decision.

"Whether Petr Cech or David Opsina play, we have a bad record in the air since the start of the season, no matter who plays," he said.

Every time you concede a goal people will say, 'Why did you not play him?' At the end of the day, he [Čech] has come back from injury, had a good week training and I just decided to keep the winning team."
