The 22-year-old joined Arsenal from Legia Warsaw back in 2006 and made the jump from his youth career to a first team player in 2009. Szczesny revealed that he has forged a deep connection with the club during his time at the club having developed with a batch of youngsters whom he believes are genuine fans of the club.
"Ever since I signed for this club, I've become an Arsenal fan," Szczesny told Arsenal Player.
"It feels like it's more than me just playing and doing my best on a Saturday afternoon. I feel like I have a much bigger part to play at this club. It means that little bit more to me.
"I think there's a lot of players in this team that are genuine Gooners. You've got people like Carl Jenkinson, there's Jack Wilshere, Emmanuel Frimpong - a lot of young players who really feel it's the biggest honour they could have, to play for this club.
"I think that's very important for the future."
Szczesny is now only 12 games short of amassing a century of appearances for the Gunners but he acknowledges that there is still room for improvement in his game.
"I think I improve with every single game," he said. "I get the experience that is needed for a young keeper, so it's important for me to play as many games as possible.
"I don't think about playing for any other club. I see my future at Arsenal Football Club. I committed to coming here at the age of 16, not to then leave at the age of 24. That's not how it works for me.
"I think coming over to England at the age of 16 was the most important decision of my life and probably the best one, to date."
Szczesny will face a tough test this Sunday when Arsenal host defending Premier League champions Manchester City.
