Wojciech Szczesny wants to see Leicester City win the Premier League this season despite still being an employee of Arsenal. 

The Polish goalkeeper is currently on loan from Arsenal at Roma and admitted he has been swept up by the Foxes' unlikely tilt for the title, while he also revealed he is content at the Stadio Olimpico, per Sky Sport Italia (h/t Football Italia via Eurosport):

No one in football can explain the Leicester miracle. Even though I support Arsenal in the Premier League, I'd like to see [coach Claudio] Ranieri's side win it. They're an example and an inspiration to everyone. It's exciting to watch them play.

Everyone knows I'm really happy here [at Roma]. I'd like to be able to tell you about my future, but I don't know what it holds for me. I've expressed my intentions to the two clubs and now it's up to them. I have to decide what's best for my career.

Arsenal's chances of winning the Premier League were effectively dashed on Saturday as they drew 3-3 with West Ham United, and table-topping Leicester can move 13 points clear of the Gunners with a Sunday victory over Sunderland.

Szczesny, 25, joined Roma on a season-long loan last July, and with Petr Cech now the No. 1 at the Emirates it seems highly unlikely that he has a long-term future at Arsenal.
