Fabianski may not leave the Emirates after all.
Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski was expected to leave the club this summer due to a lack of game time, but could now make a u-turn on that decision, according to the Sun.
The Poland international’s current contract at the Emirates Stadium expires at the end of the season and the stopper has rejected two previous offers to extend that.
With high profile clubs from both Germany and Fabianski’s home nation showing interest, it looked as if the 28-year-old’s time in north London was coming to an end.
Yet with doubt over manager whether Arsene Wenger will be in charge at the club next term or not, the ‘keeper is considering biding his time to see if a new boss would give him more of a chance.
Fabianski has now been under Wenger’s guidance for seven years after a 2007 transfer from Legia Warsaw, but has managed just 76 appearances during that time.
The last of those came at the weekend as the Pole started ahead of national compatriot Wojciech Szczesny in the FA Cup semi-final match against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
The game went to penalties and Fabianski saved both of the Latics’ first two efforts, helping his team to secure a 4-1 victory in the shootout and therefore a place in the final.
Yet there is still no guarantee that despite playing in every other round, the backup ‘keeper will start between the sticks at Wembley Stadium on May 17.
This is because Wenger is under great pressure to deliver the club’s first trophy since 2005 and may look to regular No.1 Szczesny for greater stability against Hull City.
