Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal are said to be ready to pounce for Bayern Munich’s striker Robert Lewandowski as it now appears the Gunners’ head coach is ready to appease the fans who have demanded for his sack after losing out on the title race.
According to the Mirror, Lewandowski’s future with the Bavarians is shrouded in uncertainty after he dropped a hint last week that he would relish the chance to play in the Premier League and it is believed Arsenal are waiting in the wings to snap up the former Borussia Dortmund in a bid to solve their goals scoring crisis ahead of next season.
Arsene Wenger will be given a war chest of £150m in the summer to revamp his ailing squad and he is considering a swoop for the Polish marksman.
However, the 27-year-old’s contract at the Allianz Arena still has three years left to run so the Bavarians are most likely going to slap a price-tag on his head in a reported region of £50m.
Lewandowski who has scored eight goals in just 11 Champions League appearances has been in red hot form for the Bayern this season and his goals have fired them to the brink of the Bundesliga title and the believe from the Emirates is that his experience could greatly improve the Gunners’ squad.
Wenger is eyeing up a world-class addition to his frontline after watching his team roll over in the title race. Olivier Giroud has failed to score in the top-flight since January and Theo Walcott has slipped down the pecking order.
The Gunners’ coach who was apologetic in his post-match reaction following a protest by a cross section of the club’s supporters now recognizes the need to bring in a top-quality forward in order to reverse his side’s struggles.
The Frenchman is beginning to draw up a list of summer targets and he is also keeping close tabs on Borussia Dortmund’s highly-rated midfielder Julian Weigl.
