Arsenal are considering making a renewed effort to sign Sevilla star Grzegorz Krychowiak, and sent scouts to watch the midfielder in action during last night’s UEFA Super Cup fixture.
The Poland international has a release clause that stands at £22million, with the Daily Telegraph stating that Arsene Wenger is ready to render a potential Sevilla refusal impossible by offering that sum in the coming weeks.
It’s believed the Gunners’ scouts were on hand to see Krychowiak in action as Sevilla lost a 5-4 thriller to Barcelona in Tbilisi, and should the reports sent back to Wenger read positively he will act sooner rather than later.

Arsenal fans will likely remember the 25-year-old’s name from the comings and goings of the January transfer window, as it was heavily reported then that Wenger wanted to make an offer.
Though on that occasion he decided to keep his wallet in his pocket the Frenchman wants to bolster his team’s bite in the midfield, and a bid for Krychowiak could give him the best possible chance of doing that.
Indeed it’s said that Arsenal have been monitoring the Pole for quite some time now, and Wenger isn’t keen on continuing the campaign with just Francis Coquelin around to provide protection for his back four.
Instead he wants to find a solid partner for the youngster, and Krychowiak looks to be the real deal at a fairly low price.
With his release clause being pegged at £22m Arsenal won’t have to do much to remove Sevilla from the equation, and the report in question cites Krychowiak’s interest in moving to a Premier League club competing in the Champions League as being an added bonus for Wenger.
Arsenal fans, what do you think? Will Krychowiak become the Gunners’ second big signing of this summer? Let us know in the comments box below.
