Arsenal fans assembling by the Transfer Tavern pool tables are getting giddy with excitement following some sensational news they’ve overheard.
The Sun states the Gunners are on red alert to secure the services of Bayern Munich’s incredible striker Robert Lewandowski, after he dropped a major transfer hint stating he’d like to play in England one day.
Arsenal are desperate to improve their misfiring attacking lines this summer as their top-scorers are Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez on just 12 goals, whilst the former has not scored in the Premier League since a brace at Anfield in mid-January.
Lewandowski is widely regarded as one of the best striker’s in European football and has scored 63 goals in 92 appearances for Bayern Munich since moving across Germany from arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund.
Arsenal will have to splash the cash though and any transfer is likely to be a record fee for the Gunners, as it’s expected Lewandowski will set them back at least £50m.
At 27 though, Lewandowski is approaching the prime years of his career and our landlord believes it’s this signing that would end Arsenal’s 12-year wait for a Premier League crown.
Arsenal fans, should you go all out to secure the signature of Lewandowski this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
