The Frenchman has been berated in the past for selling the Gunners’ best players, but in this instance his hands were tied. After seven years at Arsenal the Polish shot-stopper had let his contract run down and was free to move wherever he liked.

“I didn’t want to let him go, he was at the end of his contract. We didn’t sell the player but when you get to 27 or 28 and you’re not a regular first choice, you can understand that a player wants to go,” said Wenger.

Having been number two at Arsenal behind compatriot Wojciech Szczesny for years, the 29-year-old is finally getting the first team football he deserves at his new Welsh club.

Although prone to regular errors during the formative years of his Arsenal career, he matured into a fantastic goalkeeper and arguably the best second choice in the Premier League.

It will be the second time this season that Arsene Wenger’s side will be facing a former Arsenal keeper when they meet Swansea this weekend, with a brace from Alexis Sanchez getting the better of Sunderland’s Vito Mannone recently. Will Lukasz Fabianski suffer the same fate?
