After only making 1 league appearance for Arsenal, Lukasz Fabianski has left Emirates Stadium and joined Swansea City on a free transfer. The Polish shot-stopper will be moving to his new club when his contract with Arsenal expires in June.
“The main reason I came to Swansea was because I want to be the number one goalkeeper,” Fabianski said.
Fabianski refused a contract extension that was offered by Arsenal some months ago and has now made his way to Swansea City where he is expecting to get regular appearances as the first choice goalkeeper for the team of Garry Monk.
“I want to play week-in, week-out. It’s going to be a real fight, but I’m not afraid of that. Competition is always good, so I think everyone will take positives from that. I’m excited. I’ve already asked for the pre-season program to see how it looks. I’m really looking forward to starting with my new team-mates and I think it’s going to be a fantastic new chapter in my life. I will be working hard for the club, giving everything every single day.” Fabianski added on.
Fabianski arrival to Swansea City was a surprising outcome for Michel Vorm as he revealed that he was unaware about the intention of the club wanting to sign him but the Dutch shot-stopper is positive about the competition that his arrival will bring.
“Fabianski was a free agent, which I understood and he has signed for four years and the present situation is that I will be there after the summer so I have competition. It may be that Swansea is already responding to my departure but then there must be an offer. As long as that is not the case, Fabianski and I will have to fight. I do not necessarily have to leave. Of course, if I can make a big step then I may do that. We will have to see in the coming weeks.” Vorm admitted.
