Al-Nassr in talks for Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny

Wojciech Szczesny could be the latest name to head to the Saudi Pro League after Al-Nassr opened talks with Juventus over the Polish goalie.

The 34-year-old, who’s currently gearing up for Euro 2024 as part of the Poland squad heading to Germany, is a target of the Saudi club ahead of next season.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the two clubs have begun discussions over a possible deal to bring the goalkeeper to the Middle East. 

With the Italian club set to seal a deal for Monza stopper Michele Di Gregorio and talks with Mattia Perin to begin over a new contract, they have given the green light for Szczesny to leave. 

The decision now ultimately lies with the Pole on if he wants to end his spell in Italy with the Old Lady.

Szczesny joined Juventus in 2017 from Arsenal, following a successful loan spell in Serie A with Roma. 

He has played 252 times for the Italian side in his seven seasons at the club, winning the league title on three occasions and collected five cup medals in his time in Turin.

The Pole signed off last season as an unused sub in the Coppa Italia win over Atalanta, and now must decide on his next move. 

However, he did make 35 appearances in Serie A, where Juventus finished third behind the two Milan clubs.

If he does choose to make the switch to Al-Nassr, he’ll join Cristiano Ronaldo at the Saudi club, as well as Sadio Mane and former Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte.

Al-Nassr missed out on silverware last season, having finished second in the league behind Al-Hilal and suffered a heart-breaking loss to the same team in the Kings Cup Final. 

Before he can think about club football though, the goalie will head to Germany for Euro 2024, where Poland have been drawn in Group D alongside France, Austria and the Netherlands.
