Wojciech Szczesny will be Arsenal's No. 1 in the future - that's the view of Arsène Wenger.
The 20-year-old has been on loan at Brentford since November and has earned many plaudits for his eye-catching performances for the Bees.
The keeper has made 24 appearances for the League One side and their manager Andy Scott has already been quoted as saying he wants to take the stopper on loan again next term.
But Szczesny himself has said he is determined to be the Gunners' No. 1 next term. Speaking at Friday's press conference, Wenger asserted his belief that the youngster will wear the Arsenal gloves in the future, though maybe not next season.
"It is reasonable to have the ambition to be No 1 here next season," said the manager. "I believe he is doing extremely well.
"I believe one day he will be the No 1 at Arsenal certainly. But we will see next season. It is down to his performances.
"But you want as well some experience at our level. You cannot only go with young goalkeepers."
