Fabianski, 27, managed just six Arsenal appearances in all competitions during the 2011-12 campaign, with his Polish compatriot Wojciech Szczesny having emerged as the Gunners' first-choice goalkeeper.

Signed from Legia Warsaw in 2007, it seems Fabianski's time at Emirates Stadium is coming to an end after he expressed his desire to seal an exit in search of regular playing time.

He told Gazeta Wyborcza: "I hope that my adventure with Arsenal has come to an end. I intend to leave and play in a strong league.

"I wanted to leave in the winter, too, but Arsene Wenger did not give a green light."
