Arsenal are reportedly considering a bid for Grzegorz Krychowick. The gunners are looking into a 22million pounds bid for the Sevilla midfielder.
Club scouts flew out to Spain to watch the Poland International in action for Sevilla during the Super Cup clash with Barcelona on Tuesday, as reported by the Daily Telegraph.
Krychowick is believed to be a realistic transfer target for Arsene Wenger as he looks to bolster his squad before the transfer window closes on September 1.
Wenger is keen to sign the 25 year old defensive midfielder to provide competition for young French midfielder Francis Coquelin.
The midfielder, who has also been linked with United, has a buy-out clause of 30milllion euros, and he is said to have joined the Stellar Group Agency and is thought to be eyeing a move to the premier league to join a club competing in the Champions league.
Krychowick’s contract situation leaves Sevilla powerless if a club triggers the buy-out clause and Wenger may now step up his interest in the former Bordeux midfielder, who played the game against Barcelona in Tbilisi.
Krychowick is the main ball winner in Unai Emery’s Sevilla team, with his 82 tackles winning the third highest tally of any player in the Spanish top flight last season, winning the ball at an impressive 77% success rate. He is also a force in the air, winning 109 aerial duels at a success rate of 73%.
