Lukasz Fabianski is set to leave Arsenal at the end of this season, after rejecting a new contract.

The Pole shot stopper, whose contract expires in the summer, has been at Arsenal since 2007, but failed to live up to his potential only appearing 31 times in the league.

Arsene Wenger said on Fabianski: "Of course it is a possibility that it is his last campaign with us because he wants to play somewhere but if he changes his mind, my door is open."

Fabianski has fallen behind fellow countryman Wojciech Szczesny in the pecking order at the Emirates and has only played six games this season for the Gunners.

Fabianski said, in an interview at the start of the month: "I want to be number one in the club and in the Polish national team. I have learned a lot at London during very positive and challenging periods.

"With biggest respect to this great club, I didn't accept the extension offer as I am looking forward to a new challenge in England or abroad."

Fabianski was tipped to be a star of the future when he signed in 2007, but competition from Manuel Almunia, Jens Lehmann and now Szczesny has seen his development stunted. The Pole has received 21 caps for his country but is striving for more.
