Arsenal to let star join Premier League rivals on LOAN! WTF?

I do hope that this latest Arsenal transfer rumour is some sort of wind up. Or perhaps if it is going to happen it is because Arsene Wenger has found something better for the Gunners as letting our Poland international keeper Wojciech Szczesny go to strengthen another Premier League club, especially one who beat us twice this season, seems a bit daft.

A Metro report claims that Szczesny will be playing for Ronald Koeman at Southampton next season in order to provide cover for their England international Fraser Forster who looks set to miss quite a bit of the season with the knee injury picked up last month.

It would apparently be a loan deal, suggesting that Wenger has not given up on Shezzer just yet but while it would help the player and the Saints, I cannot see how it would help Arsenal unless it would give Martinez a chance to show what he can do.

If Wenger is planning to sign a new number one such as Petr Cech, then Ospina would be number two, though, and so I don´t get the loan deal. Do you?
