The Swiss outfit are set to lose their current No 1 Yann Sommer to Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach this summer as a replacement for the FC Barcelona-bound shot-stopper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

And with the north London club’s Poland international still only a reserve to compatriot Wojciech Szczesny between the sticks at the Emirates, the keeper has now opted to finally quit the Gunners at the end of the campaign in order to gain regular first-team football elsewhere.

Fabianski has featured in just the eight matches in total so far this season in all competitions, although none of those have come in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, since the 28-year-old first arrived in north London from Polish team Legia Warszawa in May 2007 for a transfer fee of just £2.1m, the player has played in only 74 matches in total in all competitions for the club, only 31 of which have come in the Premier League.

Fabianski has a contract with Arsenal that runs until the summer and so will be available to buy on a free.
