Striker’s comments give Arsenal and Chelsea transfer hope

Robert Lewandowski

Borussia Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski fancies a move to a top English club, according to the Telegraph.

The Pole is one of Europe’s most coveted transfer targets, and it was believed that a deal had been agreed with Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich, but Lewandowski rejected the claims in a recent interview, claiming that he has never mentioned a move to last year’s European champions.

“I will be able to sign a contract (with any club] in January, but I have never said that I will sign a contract with Bayern,” he said.

“It was a misunderstanding.

“One day I would like to play in the Premier League. It would be a great experience.”

With both Arsenal and Chelsea in desperate need of a world class striker, and Manchester United known to have been in pursuit of Lewandowski for the last year, the scene is set for a big money showdown.

Having scored more than a goal every other game for Dortmund (58 in 103 apps), he is perhaps still best remembered for tearing Real Madrid to pieces in last season’s first leg of the Champions League semi-final, scoring a magnificent four goals in the process.

Lewandowski will feature as England take on Poland later tonight in the final World Cup qualifier, and although his country’s chances of progression are gone, the hitman warns Roy Hodgson’s team from getting complacent, as he hopes to emulate Poland’s infamous 1973 win at Wembley.

“We won’t be favourites and we don’t stand a chance of going through, but we want to go to Wembley and at least allow our supporters a little fun,” he added.
