If quotes attributed to Poland and Borussia Dortmund’s Robert Lewandowski are anything to go by, Arsenal may still have a chance to sign the high rated striker. Earlier this week, Lewandowski had reportedly told journalist that he was going to Bayern Munich ( which is something that has been widely reported by the media in German, Poland and England ) but the player has come out to deny the quotes.
“I was a bit shocked after I saw the quotes come out on Tuesday. My only intention was to answer the question about when I would clarify my future. Like I’ve said before, I intend to leave Dortmund, but I can’t say anything else until January.”
If the quotes above are true, then it seems Arsenal still have a chance of signing Lewandowski especially if you consider the reports that claim he has changed his mind about joining Bayern Munich after considering his chances of regular first team football with Bayern. This much was alluded to by his agent who confirmed he has spoked to Napoli in the just concluded window in regards to the transfer of Lewandwoski.
If the player is hell bent on joining Bayern Munich, why should his agent be discussing with another club? Th fact that his agent has not come out to deny the quotes that claim he was talking to Napoli shows the quotes are probably truly made by him.
With Levy still in the market and Arsenal in new of a striker, I will not be surprise if we try to get him in January and if we try as hard as we tried for Suarez, I believe we will have a chance considering not many clubs will be in for his services.
Of all the big clubs around, only Arsenal and Real Madrid need him. Real already confirmed they will be signing no one in January which leaves only Arsenal as the only truly big club who needs him ( expect if you count the Milan teams ).
