Bayern Munich remain firm favourites to secure the signing of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, but Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have not given up hope of sealing a deal for the Poland international, according to Goal.com.
The 25-year-old's Dortmund contract expires next summer, which means the aforementioned Premier League trio will be allowed to open negotiations with the player and his representatives over a pre-contract in January.
Goal.com report that Manchester City are also interested in Lewandowski, who has been at Dortmund since 2010, scoring an impressive 84 goals from 149 appearances.
The Premier League clubs were given hope that they could lure Lewandowski to England after the Poland international recently commented: "I will be able to sign a contract with any club in January, but I have never said I will sign a contract with Bayern.
"One day, I would like to play in the Premier League. It would be a great experience."
However, it's Bayern who remain in pole position to sign Lewandowski, who has become one of Europe's most in-demand strikers over the past six months.
