With Bernd Leno having struggled badly for form this season, there has been some discussion among Arsenal supporters about potentially replacing the German.
One goalkeeper that has been suggested as an option is former Gunner Wojciech Szczesny. The Polish international could be offloaded by Juventus in the summer if the Serie A side sign Gianluigi Donnarumma from AC Milan on a free transfer.
Szczesny has improved massively since leaving the Emirates on a permanent basis in 2017, but fans on Twitter are very much split on whether it would be a good idea to re-sign the shot-stopper:
I really like the idea. We can get a decent fee for Leno too and buy Szczesny for cheap and so strenghten another position.

May as well keep Leno because they both make stupid decisions

Clearly no-one watches Serie A from the comments.. he has massively improved Szcz is a very good keeper
I feel that we could do better though my preference would be Maignan pic.twitter.com/BepOLuewxd

It must be pointed out that the 31-year-old has had a relatively poor season, with his save percentage having dropped from 79.2% to 72% this campaign.
That still compares favourably with Leno, though, whose own save percentage has fallen to 67.9%, which is nearly 10% below last season, demonstrating why a large section of the fanbase want him replaced this summer.
