Real Madrid one of clubs joining Arsenal in race for £19.6m midfielder

European giants Juventus and Real Madrid have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Sevilla star Grzegorz Krychowiak, according to reports from CalcioWorld.

Krychowiak has been heavily linked with a move away from Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan since the January transfer window, with Manchester City another English club keen on the highly-rated Poland international.

All clubs are looking for a defensive midfielder and have put Krychowiak high on their summer transfer list, but Sevilla want at least £19.6million for his services.

And according to Italian paper Corriere dello Sport, Juve are prepared to make an opening bid in an attempt to lure him to the Italian Serie A.

This will alert the likes of Arsenal, City, and Real, who may also consider making an early offer given that his price may rise significantly if he does well for Poland in Euro 2016.

Krychowiak, 26, has made 29 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring one goal.
