Fabianski preparing to leave the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is open to a January switch to Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 due to a lack of opportunities in north London, according to the Daily Mail.
The Germans are looking to replace current No.1 Timo Hildebrand, with whom Schalke have lost faith following a string of poor performances.
This was most notable when the 34-year-old spent too long on the ball in a Champions League tie with Chelsea, only for Samuel Eto’o to block Hildebrand’s attempted clearance and then slot the ball into the unguarded net.
Fabianski is worried about how much game time the Pole will get at the Emirates Stadium, with Wojciech Szczesny and on-loan Emiliano Viviano ahead of the 28-year-old in the pecking order.
The Poland international first caught the eye of Schalke when the ‘keeper produced a brilliant display against Bayern Munich in Europe last season.
Fabianski’s performance helped the Gunners keep a clean-sheet at the Allianz Arena, although the side were eliminated from the competition on aggregate goal difference.
This happened during a time when the Polish stopper was enjoying a run in the first team and since manager Arsene Wenger signed the player from Legia Warszawa in 2007, he has made 69 appearances in all competitions.
Schalke have also looked into the possibility of bringing out-of-favour Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas to Germany, but Fabianski would be a much more realistic signing than the World Cup winning skipper.
