Lukasz Fabianski has rejected a last-ditch attempt by Arsenal to prevent him from leaving the club, Goal understands.

But Goal has learned that the 29-year-old remains determined to seek a change of environment, despite the latest in a series of contract offers from the Gunners to extend his seven-year spell at Emirates Stadium.
Schalke and Borussia Dortmund now lead the race to capture Fabianski, while there is also interest in him from a number of Premier League clubs.
His availability on a free transfer makes him an attractive proposition in the wake of a series of solid displays when he filled in for Szczesny this season.
Fabianski was an ever-present during Arsenal's FA Cup run and he ended his career at the club in style last Saturday when they beat Hull City 3-2 in the final to end their nine-year trophy drought.
'It was probably my last game for Arsenal," said Fabianski afterwards.
"I don't know what I can say, but if I end my Arsenal career in that way then it is the best way to finish."
