ARSENAL will enter the race for Robert Lewandowski if the star striker decides to leave Bayern Munich.
The Poland international hinted last week he would – at some stage in the future – like to play in the Premier League.
Lewandowski has developed into one of the world’s hottest strikers at Bayern, the 27-year-old scoring 62 goals in 93 games for the German champions since moving from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund.
His contract with Bayern still has three years to run, however, and that would allow them to put a £50million price tag on their much sought-after forward.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will have in excess of £150m to spend in the summer but he has shown a reluctance to part with such sums of money in the past – no matter how good the player is.
However, when asked who should be his former manager’s top target this summer, ex-Gunners star Ray Parlour was clear in his answer.
Parlour told the Daily Star: “Robert Lewandowski, if they can get him. Someone of that calibre.
“Ideally you want players that are 25 or 26, but sometimes you don’t get opportunities for that. I just think they’re lacking a top quality striker.”
Wenger also has Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl on his radar.
