Goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny says he has joined Juventus to try and help them continue their trophy-winning ways of recent seasons.

The 27-year-old Poland international has signed a four-year contract in Turin, having spent the last two seasons on loan in Serie A with Roma after finding opportunities limited at Arsenal.

And Szczesny is clearly excited about his new challenge, as he told JuventusTV: "This is an incredible team, a team which is always on the pitch to win.

"That doesn't just mean a game, but every trophy. That's what brought me here, I want to win trophies, I want to be a champion - so I'm here and I'm ready to go."

Juve, who have also completed the signing of defender Mattia De Sciglio from AC Milan, have been crowned Italian champions in each of the last six seasons, while they have completed a domestic double for the last three years.

They are priced at 11/10 to claim Lo Scudetto next season, with AC Milan 200/1 and Roma 12/1.

Meanwhile, Szczesny has also pointed to the presence of Gianluigi Buffon as another major motivating factor behind his move to Juve.

He added: "Was Buffon's presence a factor? Yes, yes because I want to improve, so there's no better opportunity to do that than training with Gianluigi Buffon.

"He's one of the best, or the best, goalkeepers in history, not just the history of Italian football but football all over the world.

"I still have to improve in terms of consistency, because I want to be a goalkeeper on Buffon's level, or at least close. You have to reach that level in every game, not just in two or three games per season."
