Euro giants join the race for high-profile Manchester United & Arsenal transfer target

Posted by

According to reports in Germany, Paris Saint-Germain have joined the race to sign Bayern Munich’s superstar frontman Robert Lewandowski.

The Pole has been a truly lethal presence in the Bundesliga so far this season, scoring 15 goals in 15 outings for the Bavarian giants in the German top flight.

His form has seen Pep Guardiola’s side tear to the top of the table—they sit five points clear of Borussia Dortmund after 16 matches—but has also attracted considerable interest in his services.

The Express reported earlier this week that both Arsenal and Manchester United were keen on a move for the frontman, while German source SportBild [also via the Express] have reported that Jurgen Klopp—who oversaw Lewakdowski’s progress at Dortmund—is keen to reunite with his former protégé at Anfield.

However, the Premier League trio now look like facing considerable competition for his services, with SportBild [via Goal] reporting that PSG are also keen on Lewandowski, and have made a contract offer of €15 million per year to tempt the Pole away from Bavaria.

PSG are set to lose current frontman Zlatan Ibrahimovic during the summer when his contract comes to an end, and reportedly see Lewandowski as an ideal replacement for the Swedish veteran.

Real Madrid are also understood to be keen on the player [Marca], and may look to challenge any bid made by PSG or the player’s other suitors.
