Arsene Wenger has confirmed goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is set to leave Arsenal at the end of the season.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference prior to the match against Sunderland, Wenger admitted Fabianski is likely to quit in search of first-team football.

But the Arsenal boss also said he would welcome a change of heart as he's keen to keep the player at the club if possible.

"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," Wenger said as reported by the BBC.

Fabianski admitted earlier this month that he had turned down the offer of a contract extension from Arsenal, signalling his intention to leave the Gunners.

Since joining from Legia Warsaw in the summer of 2007, Fabianski has deputised as Arsenal's back-up keeper.

He's made just 31 league appearances for the Gunners since 2007, and has spoken of his desire to play more regularly.

With Wojciech Szczesny established as Arsenal's number one, Fabianski has been forced to make do with appearances in cup competitions. His most recent appearance came against Bayern Munich after Szczesny saw red for a challenge on Arjen Robben.
