Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has agreed on a loan move to Italian giants Roma, and the Polish international is set to ply his trade in the Serie A for one season, according to French magazine France Football.

It is believed that Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has also reportedly allowed the move to go through, after the Emirates side snapped up experienced custodian Petr Cech from Chelsea earlier this summer.

The report also states that the deal between the player and the club does not contain a buy-out option, which means Szczesny will return to the Emirates next summer.

Wenger seems to have accepted the fact that he would not be able to keep his trio of international custodians - Cech, Szczesny and David Ospina - content, when it comes to allotting proper game time in the 2015/16 season.

He, therefore, had to take a decision to allow one keeper to leave this summer.

Some reports had also emerged in recent weeks that Szczesny also actively sought to find a new club this summer.

The Polish keeper - who rose through the Arsenal youth academy to make his first-team debut in the 2010/11 season - has played a total of 181 games for the Gunners in all competitions, and kept 72 clean sheets.

His laurels with the club include two back-to-back FA Cup titles in 2013-14 and 2014-15 respectively.

Szczesny's tenure at the Emirates also included a minor controversy last season, as the player was fined and dropped from the team line-up for smoking in the dressing room showers. The incident had taken place on New Year's day, following the Gunners' 2-0 defeat at Southampton.

And it infuriated not only Wenger, but also most of his team-mates.

Ospina -- who was bought by Wenger last summer -- replaced Szczesny for the Premier League games in the final months of the season, but the Polish keeper did play a full part in their FA Cup run, which culminated in a victory against Aston Villa in the final at Wembley in May this year.
