Arsenal target £20 million move for Grzegorz Krychowiak

Published Add your comment

Arsenal pulled off their best win of the season last night as they claimed a 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund.

Goals from Yaya Sanogo and Alexis Sanchez sealed the deal to leave the Gunners two points off of Dortmund at the top of group D with one game remaining. They can of course still top the group if Dortmund stumble once more in their last game and the Arsenal defeat Galatasaray.


"Overall it was a committed game. Maybe we were defensively better tonight," the Arsenal boss said.

“We are a team that likes to go forward - sometimes we dominate the game and we maybe forget to take precautions to defend. We did that better tonight."

Duo injured

However it wasn’t all good news last night, with both Sanogo and Mikel Arteta coming off with injuries. Boss Arsene Wenger admitted afterwards that Arteta could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines, while Sanogo is a doubt for Saturday’s game against West Brom having picked up a hamstring injury. Wenger said Arteta's injury looked 'quite serious'.

Arsenal have also confirmed that Jack Wilshere will be out for around three months after undergoing surgery on his ankle, however Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott are virtually back to full fitness.

Gunners linked with £20m swoop

Yet another defensive midfielder is being linked with a move to the Gunners. Sevilla enforcer Grzegorz Krychowiak is said to be on Wenger’s radar and is available for around £20 million.

The Polish international is the latest in a long line of midfielders to have been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium, following in the footsteps of Sami Khedira, William Carvalho and Lars Bender amongst others.
