Polish star player Robert Lewandowski has hinted towards a Bayern Munich exit and it didn’t take Arsenal long to jump on the opportunity of signing one of the most lethal strikers currently active in the game. Robert Lewandowski still has three years left on his contract with Germany’s most successful club after joining the Bavarian club on a free from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2014.
Robert Lewandowski is at the end of his second year with the Bavarian club and can look back at a stellar 2015/2016 campaign in which he has scored goals in every competition. In the Bundesliga the Pole leads the topscorers list with 27 goals, scored in 30 official appearances. Add to this his 8 goals scored in 11 Champions League matches and his 3 goals scored in 5 DFB Cup matches and we reach a total of 40 goals in 46 matches. As striker of the Polish national team Robert Lewandowski has become the topscorer of the qualifications for the upcoming European Championships in France this summer. In the 10 group matches Poland played, the Bayern striker scored a staggering 13 goals.
Bayern Munich demands £50 million for Robert Lewandoski transfer
The transfer fee Bayern Munich are asking for is estimated around £50 million, in this days market not even that high if we compare this to the fees paid for players such as Memphis Depay or compared to the asking price for Romelu Lukaku. Arsenal will have no problem coughing up this kind of money, it is believed Arsene Wenger has been promised a suitcase filled with £150 million to be spend on transfers in the upcoming summer.
Arsenal’s inability to sign big name stars
Arsenal will do everything within their power to sign another recognized star-player to team up with Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Özil, in an attempt to have another go at the English Premier League title in the upcoming 2016/2017 season. Arsenal and Arsene Wenger have been slammed by its fans for the inability to strengthen the team with renowned stars and only manage to sign young talented players.
For years the Gunners have tried to lure the best of the best to the Emirates but without success. It was only since they managed to sign Mesut Özil from Real Madrid that for the first time in many years a real proven star joined Arsenal. A year later Alexis Sánchez followed the German’s steps, coming over from Barcelona. Robert Lewandowski, a 75-times international player for his country Poland, should be the next big thing.
