Arsenal star Fabianski being eyed up to join Reyes in Sevilla


Arsenal's FA Cup hero is attracting interest from Spain.

Lukasz Fabianski was Arsenal's hero in the FA Cup at the weekend, illustrating his penalty saving expertise in the semi-final shootout.

A superb moment for the Gunners, but more long-term, could it hasten his exit from the club?

Fabianski's contract is set to expire this summer, and the taste for success for the usually second choice stopper, will further his desire for regular football, while his performance is only likely to have garnered him more suitors.

We reported last week that German giants Borussia Dortmund are showing an interest, and the latest club to join the chase is Spanish side Sevilla.

The club already boast one ex-Arsenal player in Jose Antonio Reyes, and currently have 31-year-old Portuguese goalkeeper Beto as their first choice.

The interest, reported by Tuttomercato, could well appeal to Fabianski as a club where he may have a greater chance of winning the starting job, in comparison to Dortmund where Roman Weidenfaller has been a fixture for the best part of a decade.

It's likely the fifth place La Liga side, who may yet still secure Champions League football, just three points off fourth spot, are not going to be the only club adding themselves to the battle to sign Fabianski on a free transfer.

Arsenal would do well to convince the Pole to stay, but with compatriot Wojciech Szczesny highly regarded by Arsene Wenger, it may need the manager to change his mind over his first choice stopper in order to keep him around.
