Arsenal fans are well used to seeing all sorts of dodgy transfer rumours as our club is the subject of more than most, so like me you may well be a touch sceptical about the report in the Daily Mail suggesting that we might be able to sign the brilliant Poland international striker Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.
The theory is that Lewandowski has become increasingly unsettled at the German champions and even though negotiations about a contract extension are ongoing, the Pole has let it be known that he is open to offers and would like a move to the Premier League, so of course arsenal are one of the clubs being linked with a possible move for him.
I am really not sure about all this as I said, especially after the prolific striker banged in 42 goals for Bayern last year at almost a goal a game and if the rumours of a poor relationship between him and Pep Guardiola were true then the Spanish manager’s move to Man City would have solved this.
If it is true, though, how could Arsenal beat our EPL rivals to the transfer of this top quality centre forward? Well having a team in which he could thrive and expect success would be a start and with the likes of Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in the squad Arsenal would surely look a good prospect.
But how about bringing in one of his team mates as well? Is this why Arsenal are planning a £27 million transfer swoop for Mario Gotze, according to The Sun. Gotze is at Munich with Lewandowski and they both enjoyed good years at Borussia Dortmund as well.
The German star is apparently being frozen out at the Allianz Arena, hence the low transfer fee, and if Arsenal can get him could it be the precursor for a serious bid for his mate Lewandowski?
