#3 Wojciech Szczesny - Juventus

Juventus v Genoa CFC - Serie A
Szczesny made the jump from Roma to Juventus in the summer of this season

Wojciech Szczesny played two seasons for AS Roma on loan from Arsenal since 2015 before being signed on a permanent transfer by Juventus once the loan deal with the Romans expired in the summer of 2017.

At 27 years of age, Szczesny plays as the perfect back-up for the ageing veteran Gianluigi Buffon and is also touted to replace him once the Italian hangs up his boots.

The Polish shot-stopper has been almost impermeable between the sticks keeping a total of 13 clean sheets from the 17 games played across all competitions. Szczesny has conceded only six goals in over 1500 minutes of footballing action.

While he may not be a good anticipator of crosses, Szczesny's close-range abilities more than make up for this shortcoming of his. Having a distribution accuracy of 82 percent for the season, the former Arsenal man is one of the best passers of the ball.
