It has been announced that Lukas Fabianski has signed for Swansea and will join the Welsh side on July 1st when his Arsenal contract expires.
The Polish stopper ended his Arsenal career on a high with an FA Cup winners medal and a contribution in every round of the cup. Having joined in 2007 from Legia Warsaw he went on to make just 78 appearances in an Arsenal shirt as he struggled with form and injury, before falling behind compatriot Wojciech Szczesny in the pecking order.
There were some memorable howlers as he struggled to translate his training ground form onto the pitch, but his time with the Gunners ended on a real high note as he helped the club win the FA Cup.
Some sterling performances in the previous rounds saw him keep his place for the final, and even though he channeled the Fabianski of old right at the end (still makes my heart race), we won the cup and that’s all that counts.
Arsene Wenger will now be on the look-out for suitable back-up for Szczesny, and good luck to Fabianski at Swansea.
