There is a real buzz in the Football Transfer Tavern today amongst the Arsenal fans, with a fair few pints being spilled. This excitement comes after the Metro are reporting that if a £31.3 million bid for Karim Benzema fails, the man Arsene Wenger will look to bring in is none other than Robert Lewandowski.
However, with the Polish international who has previously been courted by Manchester United, thought to have a price tag in the region of £44.7 million, it would surely be a far too costly acquisition to be seen as a ‘back-up’.
Our pub landlord doesn’t fancy the Gunners chances of landing the Bayern man: “all due respect to Arsenal, but why would you leave to come here? Bayern are one of the best in the world right now – he would be man to quit that club!”.
One positive the Arsenal faithful in here today are taking is talk from Lewandowski’s agent last month that if he did move away from Germany, England would be his destination.
Gunners what do you think? Benzema or Lewandowski? Do you have a chance of getting either of them? Let us know in the comments!
