The Poland international is currently happy with life at the Emirates, although he has refused to rule out joining the Spanish giants at some point in his career
Despite the Gunners enduring a poor start to the season, the Poland international has been in excellent form.
Szczesny, 20, only signed a new long-term contract at the Emirates last year and is keen to continue with the north London club, but refused to rule out a move to the Spanish giants later in his career.
“I can't declare that I will spend my entire career here, but if I leave I will have a very important reason or I will go to Barcelona,“ Szczesny told polskathetimes.pl.
"I can't imagine a situation where I would leave this club just for money."
The confident shot-stopper believes he has a level of authority on the pitch and is keen to one day captain the Gunners.
He added: "I feel that when I say something, everyone listens to me. More so on the field than in the dressing room, but that's more important I think.
"I want to be the captain of the team. I feel that I am able to take on that responsibility. I always wanted to be captain and if I ever get that honour, I will gladly put on the armband."
