Nottingham Forest have approached Arsenal about taking Lukasz Fabianski on loan.
The Polish stopper has missed the entire season so far with injury but with his return not too far away, Alex McLeish has made an enquiry about his availability.
It seems likely that Arsenal would allow him to leave, perhaps just for a month, in order to get some match fitness but perhaps a deal until the end of the season would be more realistic.
Arsene Wenger gave an update on his progress today, saying of his return to full training, “He is not far away now, two or three weeks.”
Whether this fits into Forest’s time frame and their need for a keeper remains to be seen. Fabianski’s long-term future at the club is extremely doubtful in any case, with the player confirming last summer he wanted to leave, before injury scuppered any chance of finding a new club.
With Wojciech Szczesny firmly established as the number 1, and Fabianski nearly 27 and needing to play, it seems a permanent deal will be in order sooner rather than later.
