The Arsenal club shop are apparently refusing to to print the names of current stars Lukas Podolski and David Ospina on the backs of their shirts, and are warning fans against getting “Szczesny 1” too.
With the imminent arrival of Petr Cech, the Colombian international’s future has been thrown into doubt, and could soon be on his way to Turkey in order to continue his career.
Alternatively, there has been much doubt about Szczesny’s future, too, after losing his place as the club’s first choice stopper just after the new year.

However, the warning over the Polish international’s shirt will likely be more in reference to his squad number, as Cech will surely take the number one jersey.
Lukas Podolski is almost certain to move on during the summer window, after being told by Arsene Wenger that he has no future at the club.
Having been sent out to Inter Milan last term, he is also expected to head to Turkey.
