Arsenal have been linked with a move for Lech Poznan teenager Dawid Kownacki. And they could recruit the midfielder for only €160,000 this summer unless the Polish club are able to commit the player to a professional deal.

The Gunners are expected to be busy indeed during the summer transfer window, although the proposed acquisition of Kownacki is not exactly the marquee signing to placate supporters. Kownacki his highly-rated, however, having scored two goals in seven appearances from midfield, despite being aged only 17.

Polish source WP reports that Arsenal are very much in the running to bring Kownacki to the Emirates Stadium, with a deal mooted this summer that would see the midfielder loaned back to Lech Poznan for another season. This, however, is dependent on Kownacki signing a new contract.

He is not 18 until March next year and could sign a deal with Arsenal before then. Should the Gunners pursue a contract agreement, then Lech would be eligible for only €160,000 in compensation. They are, however, optimistic Kownacki will sign, and hope to insert a release clause of €2 million into the proposed deal.

It remains unclear if Arsenal would be willing to make a move for the player were Lech Poznan able to get their wish and increase his minimum sale clause.
