According to the Metro, Arsenal is set to table a bid of £35 million for Poland born Bayern Munich Forward Robert Lewandowski. The Poland national team captain, who ascended the grades of football from playing in the 3rd tier of football to playing professionally, is known to be very lethal in front of goal as seen from his records in the clubs he’s previously played for.
While playing for Borussia Dortmund, a club he joined in June 2010, Lewandowski became the first player to score four goals in a semi-final UEFA champion’s league game, a feat he achieved against Real Madrid in the 2012/2013 season and proceeded to becoming the highest goal scorer in the Bundesliga the following season. His abilities are in no doubt as statistics have shown.
Last season, though his first, the 26 years old striker struggled to establish himself at Bayern Munich, scoring 17 goals in 31 appearances for the Bundesliga Champions. He is thought to be the missing link between Arsenal and the EPL title. Arsene wenger recently stated that a 15-20 goals per season player is all he desires, Robert Lewandowski has never been short of that amount of goals on the average per season. Therefore, it will be good business if the emirates outfit can snap up the deal.
Oliver Giroud’s abilities are in no doubt, but a much more assured centre forward in the calibre of Robert will dethrone Chelsea as champions and hand-over the EPL title to Arsenal whom the title has evaded for more than a decade.
