Arsene Wenger confirms player exit
Lukasz Fabianski set to leave Arsenal in the SummerArsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski will most likely leave the club in the Summer in order to play regular first-team football.
The Polish shot-stopper has been second fiddle to his counterpart Wojciech Szczesny for a few seasons now, and after seeing third-choice 'keeper Vito Mannone leave the club and do well at Sunderland, Fabianski is now ready to do the same.
The 28-year-old has spent seven years at Arsenal, but has only managed to make 31 first-team appearances, and today, Wenger confirmed that he is likely to leave the club at the end of the season.
Wenger said: "Of course it is a possibility that it is his last campaign with us because he wants to play somewhere but if he changes his mind, my door is open."
Fabianski's current deal expires in the Summer and he has recently turned down a new deal from the club.
Earlier this month, Fabianksi said: "I want to be number one in the club and in the Polish national team. I have learned a lot at London during very positive and challenging periods.
"With biggest respect to this great club, I didn't accept the extension offer as I am looking forward to a new challenge in England or abroad."Get the new iPad Air. Converts on a zip submit. US traffic only. No incent. No Co-Reg. Offer Cap: 1,000 daily.
