Real Madrid are leading the chase to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewnandowski, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish media outlet Don Balon claims Real have contacted Bayern about the Polish striker over a move to the Bernabeu, with reports suggesting the Champions League holders’ president Florentino Perez a huge fan of the player.
It’s suggested Real could sign Lewandowski and allow Karim Benzema to leave the club and will move for the Pole ahead of other targets, which include Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe, Juventus forward Paulo Dybala and Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Despite having two years left on his contract, it’s claimed Lewandowski is ready to experience life in another league and they suggest the Premier League is another possible destination, with Arsenal also keen on the striker, 29.
Bayern want to keep the striker, but with the player now 29, could look to cash in to the tune of £75million if either Real or Arsenal matched their asking price.
The Gunners have already seen a bid for Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe rejected, but they may find more joy with an approach for Lewandowski.
