Per Mertesacker has revealed his Arsenal teammates would like Wojciech Szczesny to return to the club.
The Poland international sealed a loan move to Roma in the summer but he is already keen on returning to the Emirates despite reports suggesting the Serie A club want him permanently.
However, Mertesacker is convinced Szczesny still has a role to play in Arsene Wenger's side.
"Wojciech wants to compete. I think he's a good goalkeeper and he can still develop," the Gunners defender told JD Football.
"The team wants him back - that's good for him.”
