Fabianski joining Swansea could pave way for goalkeeper to move to Liverpool

Lukasz Fabianski may be expecting to be first choice at Swansea City, so what does it mean for Michel Vorm?

Swansea City’s move for Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski could have implications on Michel Vorm’s future.

Vorm and Gerhard Tremmel were the two goalkeepers of choice at the Liberty Stadium last season, and Fabianski said openly he was looking to move from the Emirates Stadium in search of being a number one goalkeeper.

Dutch international Vorm has been linked with a reunion with former boss Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool. The Reds boss has said he is looking to strengthen in all positions as his side looks to build on their second place finish in the Premier League last season along with their return to the Champions League.

Rodgers is said to be after someone who can provide competition for current number one Simon Mignolet this season.

The predicament that Vorm will find himself in at Swansea City could be playing second fiddle to Fabianski, who signed a four-year contract at the South Wales club and joins on July 1.

Although it is likely he will be second choice if he were to move to Liverpool, there are more opportunities available to him with their participation in Europe, along with playing second fiddle to a club that is playing in Europe’s premier club competition and possibly contending for the league – as opposed to a Premier League side that finished 12th last season.

The signing of Fabianski might be an indication that the Swans are more willing to let him go, and that Vorm himself will be more inclined to move away from the club, strengthening Liverpool's position if they wish to acquire him. Fabianski's move may have just triggered a bit of a merry-go-round.
