Arsenal have been linked with a number of top strikers across Europe but there is a surprise name now being linked with a move to the Emirates.
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski who has built a reputation as being one of the best strikers on the planet is the latest name being linked with the club. According to the Mirror, Arsenal are looking at the possibility of signing the Poland international this summer as Wenger tries to bolster his attacking options.
The report claims Lewandowski who is currently enjoying life under Pep Guardiola at Bayern could be interested in moving to the Premier League like his boss after admitting he keeps an eye on English football.
Bayern Munich are not willing to sell the striker who still has 3 years left on his contract and the German club will put a £50m price tag on the striker should he attempt to force a move away from the Alianz Arena.
But the price tag is not expected to deter the Gunners as Wenger is reportedly keen on signing a top striker and with a cash reserve of about £150m the Frenchman has adequate ammunition to lure the Pole to the Emirates. However, the chances of signing Lewandowski this summer looks very slim but in football, nothing can be ruled out and the club has been boosted by the player admitting he has always had a connection with the club while growing up.
Maybe I’ll play in England or Spain one day, Lewandowski said.
But, if I committed to pursuing my career in Munich, it’s because I considered it the ideal club at which to move up a level and to win more trophies.
I don’t know what my future will look like but at the moment I’m very happy at Bayern.
Thierry Henry has always been my idol, especially when he played for Arsenal. I watched a lot of his matches.
Lewandowski has 186 club goals in his career and will definitely be an upgrade to the Gunner’s strikeforce should he move to the Emirates.
