Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has emerged as a summer transfer target for Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City, as the Premier League trio look to reinforce their goalscoring ranks.

The 23-year-old has scored 20 goals for BVB this season, as Jurgen Klopp's side fought off the threat of Bayern Munich to win their second successive Bundesliga title.

According to The Mirror, Lewandowski's apparent refusal to open talks with Dortmund regarding a new contract has alerted Arsenal, Chelsea and City to his potential availability this summer.

However, should an attempt be made to bring the Poland international to the Emirates Stadium, Stamford Bridge or the Etihad Stadium respectively, the interested party can expect to pay around £15 million for his signature.

Lewandowski could prove to be a useful addition for Arsene Wenger as doubts remain over the future of Robin van Persie, although the Arsenal boss has already seemingly tied up a deal for Lukas Podolski.

Chelsea, meanwhile, could be set to lose Didier Drogba at the end of the season and, should the 34-year-old leave the club, the acquisition of another striker is imperative for the Blues.

Likewise, Roberto Mancini could see his hand forced in the transfer market with the futures of Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli seemingly in question, so a move for Lewandowski could make sense for City.
