Fabianski set to join Swansea City

Lukasz Fabianski has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Swansea City.

The 29-year-old goalkeeper made 78 appearances for Arsenal during his seven years at the Club, keeping 25 clean sheets.

Fabianski was an instrumental part of the Gunners’ FA Cup-winning side last season. He conceded just three goals in five matches en route to the final, and made two crucial penalty saves in the semi-final shoot-out against Wigan, before helping the team to victory in the final in his last appearance for the Club.

The Poland international was an ever-reliable presence in his 11 games for the Club last term, and enjoyed a 100 per cent win record in his five appearances in 2012/13.

Everyone at Arsenal would like to thank Lukasz for his contribution to the Club and to wish him well for his future career.

Strange move imo. Not going to be number 1 there either with Vorm... unless he's leaving

He's better than Vorm.

But surely he could play for a better club. maybe it's a stop gap.

Rumours Vorm may be off. Just seems silly to me.

As much as I love Fabianski he's overrated on this forum. He's a great shot stopper no one's ever questioned that. But he still has the tendency to do lunatic things like we saw in the FA Cup final with him charging out. He's also crap at dealing with crosses. Put him in goal for an entire season and he'll have a fair few calamities.

Wish him the best in the future but he's not Arsenal quality, and imo he's not better than Vorm.

Vorm to us as a second option GK?

Vorm must be off, otherwise I can't understand why he'd go somewhere else to be a number two. Good luck to him.

Vorm is off to Liverpool apparently to compete with Mignolet.

Would be a stupid decision by him, Mignolet is by far the better keeper.

Mignolet made a lot of mistakes last season.

Mignolet has had a pretty poor season. He was kept flapping inside the box most of the times last season. Vorm can easily challenge him for No-1 spot. Fabianski is better than both.

The Swans this morning clinched the signing of Arsenal keeper Lukasz Fabianski on a four-year deal.

It's led to reports that Brendan Rodgers could move to sign Vorm for £5m, having previously worked with him at the Liberty Stadium.

However, Vorm's agent Wessel Weezenberg revealed an offer has not yet been made.

On a Kop switch, Weezenberg said: "We don't know. There is nothing concrete at the moment."

Vorm, 30, is under contract at Swansea until the end of the 2015-16 season.

Simon Mignolet is the current Anfield No.1 but there are still doubts whether he is up to playing at the top level.

We should get Reina. Relegate Szczesny to the bench for a couple of years and to work on his obvious flaws.

Good luck Fabianski :)
Will prove to be a good move like Mannone to Sunderland.
