Interest continues to mount in the signing of Robert Lewandowski, with reports suggesting that Arsenal could target a move for the in-demand Borussia Dortmund star in January.
25-year-old Lewandowski has been in formidable form over recent seasons, comfortably establishing his position as one of European football's most-feared frontmen with several consistently prolific displays for Jurgen Klopp's outfit.
The Polish international's current contract at Signal Iduna Park is set to expire at the end of the season, a factor that has seemingly alerted a number of potential suitors.
Bavarian giants Bayern Munich - Dortmund's chief domestic title rivals - have been strongly linked with a deal for Lewandowski, along with Premier League outfits Chelsea and Manchester United and La Liga giants Barcelona.
According to reports cited by French newspaper Le 10 Sport, Arsene Wenger's Gunners are also eyeing the former Lech Poznan striker as they look to provide suitable competition for powerful Frenchman Olivier Giroud at the Emirates Stadium.
The same publication suggests that a fee of approximately €8.5 million would probably be enough to secure Lewandowski's signature, a price reportedly well within Arsenal's price range.
Whether they will be able to force their way to the front of a queue which evidently includes a number of Europe's biggest clubs, however, remains to be seen.
