Our pursuit of a world class striker is no secret, and we were heavily linked with a host of stars this summer. It seems we were closer than many thought to luring Robert Lewandowski away from Bayern Munich, and could still tempt him to North London, according to the Daily Mail.
The report claims the Polish striker isn’t a Pep Guardiola type of player, and the former Barcelona boss may be willing to let him go. This means that Lewandowski’s future could hinge on whether Guardiola signs an extension at Bayern, or whether he leaves the club in the near future.
It’s hard to see Lewandowski being surplus to requirements at any club, as he is one of football’s truly world class strikers – his five goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg are testament to that.
The report is suggesting a £40m-50m move was made for the Bundesliga star, but it may take more to tempt Bayern Munich into selling. He is the type of striker who could really help win us the league, and if there is a possibility of securing his signature we should unquestionably be continuing our pursuit of the international star.

The Mail’s report claims we have had chances to sign him in the past, but struggled to compete with Bayern Munich. Hopefully Guardiola pens a new long term deal at the club, and Lewandowski is convinced he should be looking for a move elsewhere.
