Arsenal face Bayern battle for Blackburn star

Arsenal will have to see off a challenge from Bayern Munich if they hope to secure the services of Blackburn forward Junior Hoilett this summer, it has been claimed.

Hoilett is out of contract this summer and, any optimism that the 21-year-old would remain at Ewood Park, will surely have been extinguished following Blackburn's relegation from the Premier League.

Arsenal, Tottenham, Stoke, Everton and Sunderland have all been linked with Hoilett, but the former appear to be ahead of their rivals in pursuit of Hoilett's signature.

However, according to the Daily Mail, Arsenal have been joined in their pursuit by Bayern, and Hoilett's representatives have already flown to Germany to discuss a potential move to the Allianz Arena.

The acquisition of Hoilett would certainly be an interesting one for Arsenal, and he would provide Arsene Wenger with further options in wide midfield positions, or as extra support for Robin van Persie.

Hoilett has scored seven goals for Blackburn this season, but has the ability to contribute more frequently, and is likely to do so playing with superior players.
