The Polish international played a significant part in Dortmund winning consecutive Bundesliga titles and a German Cup and while he admits he is happy at Dortmund he also aspires to play in a more high profile league.
With the departure of Robin van Persie looking increasingly likely, Arsenal fans have labelled Lewandowski the most reasonable like-for-like replacement after the Polish international scored 30 goals in all competitions last term.
Lewandowski is quoted by TalkSport as saying to Polish Television Station TVP:
This (the Premier League) is a league that I would like to play in, and I hope it happens sometime. Although I am happy at Dortmund I always like to aspire to greater heights.
Ironically, Dortmund seem to be in a similar situation to Arsenal with each side’s respective star striker looking to make a move away from their respective clubs.
Reports are also linking Lewandowski to other high profile clubs, particularly United following the move of Lewandowski’s former team-mate Shinji Kagawa. Poland boss Franciszek Smuda claimed a move was close earlier in June, but as yet nothing has come to fruition for the Red Devils.
Personally speaking, for Arsenal it is quite clear that this type of transfer will completely hinge on the future of Robin van Persie as well as the fact that the Gunners still have a few strikers of get off the wage-roll (Chamakh, Park and Bendtner).
- Three key players return in major boost for Arsenal vs Villarreal
- Arsenal add ex-academy star priced at £10m to summer shortlist
- Arsenal are close to signing €80m midfielder for a ‘reduced price’
