The Poland international left the north London for the Liberty Stadium in the search of more regular first-team football next season, despite the fact that Gunners head coach Arsene Wenger did play Fabianski in goal in this month’s FA Cup final with Hull City at Wembley Stadium.
And while many of the club’s supporters were disappointed to see the 29-year-old join the Swans this summer, Arsenal’s fans may actually be interested to see how Fabianski matches up when compared to the likes of previous custodians such as Jens Lehmann, Manuel Almunia, Wojciech Szczesny:

The Polish keeper, who joined Arsenal from Legia Warsaw for just £2.1m in May 2007, ended up featuring in just 81 matches in all competitions during the course of his seven-year stay in north London.
However, with a save percentage of under 70 during his time at the Emirates, the Pole has now left the club to start a new career in South Wales.
