Fabianski could be heading to Basel despite playing well in the Champions League.
Being understudy to Wojciech Szczesny is no longer good enough for Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and FC Basel are looking to sign the Pole as a result, reports Eurosport.
The 28-year-old impressed in the Gunners’ last outing during a 1-1 draw with Champions League holders Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena in Tuesday, a match in which Fabianski saved a late penalty from Thomas Muller.
However, that was only the Poland international’s eighth appearance of the season and with Szczesny having also been in good form this term, that doesn’t look set to change any time soon.
There were question marks over who would be the No.1 at the Emirates Stadium this campaign as both Polish stars had been utilised in 2012/13, whilst Emiliano Viviano was also drafted in on-loan.
Yet Szczesny has seized the jersey as his own, with Viviano having failed to make a single appearance and Fabianski being left on the periphery.
Basel are therefore looking at the ‘keeper as a transfer merry-go-round is set to take place this summer.
The Swiss champions expect to lose their stopper Yann Sommer to Borussia Monchengladbach, as the Bundesliga club’s own No.1 Marc-Andre ter Stegen is expected to join Barcelona to replace the departing Victor Valdes – who is likely to go to AS Monaco.
Fabianski joined the Gunners from Legia Warzsawa in 2007 and has since played 75 matches for the north London club, although has never been established as a first team regular for long periods of time.
