Arsène believes that 19-year-old goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is a future Arsenal No 1.

The youngster is currently on loan at Brentford, where he has put in a string of eye-catching performances, helping the Bees to surge up the League One table.

Szczesny made his international debut for Poland at the end of last year and manager Wenger believes the keeper has a bright future ahead of him.

"I really believe in him that he will one day be Arsenal's No 1," he said.

"He has all the qualities you want from a goalkeeper. That means a good basic confidence level, he is very brave, fantastic size, very agile and his speed in his reflexes is absolutely unbelievable.

"When you think it is a goal, with him it is still no goal. He makes unbelievable saves. We are great believers that he will be an outstanding goalkeeper."
