The Daily Mirror believe that Arsenal will fight Man City in a chase to sign £25m rated Robert Lewandowski with the Pole likely to leave the Bundesliga side sooner rather than later.
The powerful striker will be out of contract in the summer and as such Jurgen Klopp’s side could well consider big money offers in January to prevent the possibility of losing Lewandowski on a free transfer at the end of the season and any offer that comes from a side other than domestic rivals Bayern Munich may well be gladly accepted.
Dortmund saw youngster Mario Gotze join the Allianz Arena side and will not want to further strengthen their rival’s squad by handing them arguably the Bundesliga’s best forward.
Lewandowski has been in fine form since moving from Lech Poznan to Dortmund back in the summer of 2010, scoring 84 goals in 148 appearances for the Westfalenstadion side.
The lack of out and out striking options available to Wenger, especially with the Arsenal manager seeing Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski as predominantly wide attacking options, has led to Dane Nicklas Bendtner being called up to offer back-up for Giroud.
Arsenal could well do with investing this area and if the club are still riding high in the Premier League and Champions League by the time the January transfer window re-opens then there is every chance that either of these targets would be open to a move to join the Gunners.
