In what appears to be a rather overly-thoughtful and considerate move, Arseblog News (via Gunnerblog) understands that Arsenal have given Lukasz Fabianski permission to leave the club on loan.
The Polish stopper is currently recovering from injury and hasn’t played for the club since Thomas Vermaelen broke him during the 3-1 away defeat to Olympiacos back in early December.
Fabianski’s desire to leave is due to the upcoming European Championships being held in his native Poland, and in Ukraine. He has already fallen behind his younger compatriot, Wojciech Szczesny at club level, and any outside chance he has of getting the number 1 jersey for his national side rest on him playing regular football between now and the end of the season.
However, Arsenal fans will worry that with Vito Mannone also out on loan, any injury/suspension for Szczesny would see a return to first team action for Manuel Almunia, who started the season as 4th choice.
Unless Arsene Wenger has got a goalkeeping signing lined-up, or serious faith in youngster Damian Martinez, it does seem a risky move to allow Fabianski to leave.
Of course Szczesny could stay fit and unsuspended for the rest of the season, but it does add an element of worry to procedings.
At this moment in time there have been no offers for his services.
