Sevilla star Grzegorz Krychowiak will not attempt to force his way to Manchester United or Arsenal this summer but will consider a move if either club meets his £21m release clause, reports The Mail.
The forceful midfielder has been a revelation for the La Liga club this season and finished it by scoring the key equalising in the Europa League final against Dnipro to help them to a 3-2 win.
Krychowiak's fine form has caught the attention of both Louis van Gaal and Arsene Wenger, who are both scouring Europe in search of a forceful midfielder ahead of next season.
The 25-year-old has spent just 12 months in Seville having joined from French club Reims last summer and is happy to stay with Sevilla for at least one more season.
He has no plans to request a move to either the Emirates or Old Trafford; a decision made all the more easier by their participation in next season's Champions League.
However, Krychowiak will consider a transfer to either team should they meet the £21m release clause stated in his contract. Such an offer would leave Sevilla with no choice but to accept and give the 25-year-old reason to consider a move.
Alternative to Schneiderlin
The fee is certainly not unobtainable for either club with both Van Gaal and Arsene Wenger facing a bill of £25m if they want to sign their first-choice midfield target Morgan Schneiderlin.
Southampton were expecting to have a number of suitors for the France international but have so far seen the Gunners and the Red Devils baulk at their asking price.
However, Schneiderlin comes with a premium because of his proven track record in English football and the fact he qualifies as a homegrown player and Southampton still expect to part ways with their star midfielder at some point this summer.
Ironically, the Saints recently launched an £8m bid for Krychowiak to replace Schneiderlin but saw it knocked back.
