Arsenal's season ended on a high with a 2-0 win at Norwich City on Sunday, but the attention will now be turned to this weekend's FA Cup final against Hull City as manager Arsene Wenger looks to finally end the club's nine year wait for a trophy.

In the semi-final against Wigan Athletic, goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski was the hero with a superb display in the penalty shootout, and defender Laurent Koscielny has praised the Polish international for staying so professional despite being second choice behind compatriot Wojciech Szczesny.

“Lukasz is a very good goalkeeper. He's a big professional and he's the first in training to prepare,” Koscielny said. “He tries to improve himself in training and during the game if he's on the bench you feel he's concentrating with the team.

“He is very good off his line, like Wojciech, and has good feet which is very important for modern football now. He reads the game well when he needs to get to the ball in front of the striker," the Frenchman added.

The game against Hull is huge for the Gunners as they look for silverware, but Tigers hero Dean Windass believes that Wenger should leave Arsenal after the game - whether they win the FA Cup or not.

“I think Arsene will walk away,” Windass said. "He has been one of the most successful managers in Premier League history and to have been in charge of Arsenal for as long as he has is incredible. But Arsene has had his time and if they do not win the FA Cup he should leave.

“Even if they were to win the FA Cup, I still think he should walk away and let someone new start a fresh era at the club. At the end of the day, Arsenal are a massive football club and are use to winning trophies. And having not won any silverware for nine years, fans are right to question his ambition," he said.

Regardless of Windass' comments, Wenger is planning for this summer's transfer window and has reportedly opened talks with Toulouse right back Serge Aurier over a switch to the Emirates Stadium. Long serving Bacary Sagna is set to leave the club this summer, leaving Arsenal with a gap to fill in their defence, and the hope is that Ivorian international Aurier will complete a £7m move before the World Cup.
