Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny insists he would be prepared to sign a contract to keep him at the Gunners until the end of his career, even if the club attempt to bring Real Madrid's Iker Casillas in to battle him for the number one shirt.
After competing alongside Lukasz Fabianski and Vito Mannone last season 23-year-old Szczesny has gone onto become Arsene Wenger's undisputed number one choice in goal this campaign, a development which has seen the club's reported pursuit of a new shot stopper alleviate.
The Poland international saw his fine form rewarded with a new four year contract last November as the club's reported interest in Spain captain Casillas and his international understudy Victor Valdes fade, despite their uncertain futures.
And even should Wenger have a change of heart and opt to pursue a high profile goalkeeper in the summer, Szczesny is more than ready for the challenge.
"If they give me a contract to the end of my career, I'd sign it without any hesitation," Szczesny told Przeglad Sportowy, the Evening Standard report.
"I feel attached to the club and the coach who has given me a chance. There are not many who would do that but I must've been good. I see the future here.
"I'll play at Arsenal as long as I am wanted here. I am not afraid to fight for number one with anyone: Fabianksi or Casillas.
"I hope I won't make the boss think, 'Wojciech's not number one'. It's all in my hands. I am in the best form of my life."
With loan signing Emilano Viviano unlikely to be retained having failed to make a single appearance for the club this season and Fabianski set to leave when his contract expires this summer, Wenger may find himself in the market for another goalkeeper this summer.
