We only have the Arsenal transfer rumours to go on but it would make a lot of sense if the Poland international star Robert Lewandowski was high up on the list of strikers that Arsene Wenger was after this summer. There have been some reports that the Frenchman has already made and had turned down an offer for him by his current club Bayern Munich.
Whether or not that is true, there seems to be no reason for Wenger to hold out any hopes of signing the striker, at least not in this transfer window. The 26-year old has only been with the German Bundesliga champions for one season after all and with 25 goals in his first season at a rate of just over one every other game, it is not as if he has been a flop.
Lewandowski, however, seems to think that he still has a lot to prove to the Bayern fans and his determination to do that is why Arsenal fans can forget about seeing him in north London any time soon, unless we get them in the Champions League that is.
Also, as reported by the Express, the forward still has a few goals that he wants to achieve in Munich before he thinks about a transfer away. Despite winning the league at a canter again last season, they had disappointing campaigns in the German cup and the Champions League and that is the sort of thing he joined them for in the first place.
Lewandowski said, “I don’t believe the fans have already seen the best of me. I can, and will, be even better this season, I’m certain of that.
“It’s not always easy of course as there are so many factors involved. It’s vital we play well as a team. That’s the most important thing.
“It would be useless to me personally if I was to finish top scorer but we only come second in the Bundesliga and go out of the Champions League in the last sixteen.”
So it seems that if Wenger does want to sign this player, then Arsenal need to show that we also have a good chance of winning top honours. But should we even wait for him or will Arsenal have signed another top striker by the time Lewandowski is ready?
