Robert Lewandowski has given a big hint he could be joining Arsenal in the future by claiming he took inspiration from Arsenal legend Thierry Henry while he was growing up.
The Poland international has always been linked with a move to Arsenal. Wenger is said to be a big admirer of the Bayern Munich star and he reportedly tried to sign him before he went to Bayern Munich. And now that the Poland international has confirmed he looked up to Thierry Henry, maybe, just maybe we may be getting him one day using our former striker to lure him in.
Speaking to UEFA.COM, Lewandowski was quoted to have said; “I watched the national team and I also remember the Champions League. I used to fall asleep a bit in the second half of those matches as it was quite late, but I always wanted to watch until the end.
“Thierry Henry was a player I liked to watch and take inspiration from,” Lewandowski said.
“It was a real honour more recently when he asked if he could have my shirt after a game. I asked if it was for someone else and he said: ‘No, it’s for me.’ That was really cool.
“I was watching him on TV a few years ago, now he is asking for my shirt.”
He scored 30 goals in 32 Bundesliga games last season and created five assists which shows his class. He scored 42 goals in 51 games in all competition. He is certainly the type of striker Arsenal fans will like to see Wenger buy but let’s face it, if he becomes available and considering how unncessarily prudent Wenger can be, we have little chance of getting him.
