Roma have been credited with an interest in Lukasz Fabianski, but the goalkeeper insists he has no plans to quit the Premier League.
The Poland international first arrived in England in 2007 when Arsene Wenger spent around £2million of his budget to lure him from Legia Warsaw. Fabianski, though, was unable to establish himself as the number one choice for Arsenal, although he did help them end a nine-year trophy when he kept goal in the FA Cup final win against Hull City last season.
Wenger was keen to extend the 29-year-old’s stay at the Emirates Stadium, but with first team football his priority, the player opted to instead join Swansea City upon the end of his contract at the Gunners. He has gone on to enjoy an impressive debut campaign at the Liberty Stadium, keeping 11 clean sheets at Garry Monk’s side look for a top-ten Premier League finish.
Fabianski’s form doesn’t appear to have gone unnoticed on the continent, either. Reports in Italy claim Roma are considering a move for his signature in the summer, as they seek a long-term successor to 38-year-old Morgan De Sanctis. However, the Swans star has revealed he has no intention of swapping the English top-flight for its Italian equivalent.
He told Polish newspaper Przeglad Sportowy: “My brother mentioned that this information (about interest from Roma) appeared in newspapers, but to be honest, I feel very good in the Premier League. I know the language and culture. I think that the Premier League is still the most attractive place to play. That’s why I’d rather not move anywhere.”
Fabianski competes with his former Arsenal team-mate Wojciech Szczesny and Bournemouth’s on-loan Artur Boruc for a place in the Poland side, but it was he who was selected for the recent 1-1 draw with Ireland in a Euro 2016 qualifier on Sunday. This keeps Adam Nawalka’s side in control of a hugely competitive Group D at the halfway stage.
