Grzegorz Krychowiak admits he's heard of Arsenal interest

Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak has rekindled speculation of a potential move to Arsenal after he recognised the Gunners' interest in signing him.

The Polish international was heavily linked with a move to north London during the summer transfer window but nothing materialised as Arsene Wenger opted against signing an outfield player. 

However, the French boss has previously stated the Emirates outfit will be busy in January, and are already on the verge of confirming a deal for FC Basel's Mohamed Elneny.

With Francis Coquelin out until February, along with the absence of Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere, the Gunners are light in midfield and are expected to make a number of additions. 

Although, Krychowiak's £30 million price-tag could be a stumbling block in any potential deal.

The 25-year-old has become an integral figure at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan since his €4.5 million move from Stade Reims in 2014 and he admitted he is not bothered about speculation of a transfer, leaving that side of things to his agent.

He told FourFourTwo: “I've heard about Arsenal, but I leave it to my agent. I trust him and he's the one who deals with that kind of the stuff.

"I can’t think about things like that. I have to keep my mind free of any distraction and just focus on doing my job for Sevilla.”


The confirmation of Elneny's signing has been put back by work permit issues but the Egyptian international will provide some much-needed cover in the centre of the park.

Arsenal have struggled with injuries once again this season and the loss of Coquelin has left a huge hole in midfield.

Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini has been the usual partnership for the Gunners. However, the midfield has looked a lot more vulnerable without the injured Frenchman.

Is the addition of Mohamed Elneny enough for Arsenal in midfield? Leave your comments below
