The rumour mills are spinning this morning around the Emirates again with reports out claiming that Arsenal’s Polish goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is entertaining interests from premiership rivals Newcastle United, Cardiff and Swansea City. Fabianski, whose current contract runs out this summer has rejected a new three year contract renewal offer from the club.
The Telegraph claims Fabianski’s camp has been contacted by Swansea and their interest in the Pole, registered. Newcastle are also thought to be keen on Fabianski with the possibility of them losing Dutch shot stopper Tim Krul growing by the day.
My thoughts on this rumour is very simply and clear. Fabianski deserves first team football and that has not been the case for him at Arsenal and with the age and form of fellow pole and Arsenal’s first choice Wojceich Szczesny, it does not appear like he stands much of a chance at the club.
It is a hard life for second choice goalkeepers in football but what makes Fabianski’s case peculiar is the fact that Szczesny would keep him out of the squad at international level as well if he remains at the club. This is rather unfair to someone of his talents and to ask him to stay on would be cruel.
If the rumour grows into something serious then I wish Fabianski all the best in his life after Arsenal. Let’s hope he can remember his time at the Emirates with a medal or two.
