Lewandowski Set For £20m Move?

By on July 9, 2012

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, four Premier League clubs are battling it out for Robert Lewandowski.

Robert Lewandowski

Four Premier League clubs are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims that Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham have all shown an interest in signing the Polish hitman, who’s rated at around £20m by his current club.

New Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has an apparent £50m ‘war chest’ to spend this summer with a striker thought to be high on his priority list. The Portuguese tactician is believed to have recommended Lewandowski to officials at White Hart Lane  as the club struggles to finalise a deal to sign Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor on a permanent basis.

Tottenham will face competition from London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal though, with both clubs on the look-out for a new striker this summer. Chelsea need to find a replacement for Didier Drogba while the Gunners have identified the 23-year-old as a potential replacement for Robin van Persie, who is expected to leave the club this summer after refusing to sign a new contract.

Sir Alex Ferguson is also a huge fan of Lewandowski’s and Poland manager Franciszek Smuda has recently claimed that the Dortmund front man was on his way to Old Trafford. However, a deal hasn’t been finalised as Fergie is focusing on strengthening his midfield ahead of the new season.

Lewandowski was the Bundesliga’s top scorer last season as his 30 goals helped Dortmund win a league and cup double.

Football Talk Verdict

After his impressive goal tally last term, it’s no surprise Lewandowski is attracting interest from the Premier League big-boys. Will he end up in the Premier League? Possibly, but right now it’s anyone’s guess where he’ll go as there doesn’t seem to be a front-runner.

Chelsea may have other targets in mind, such as Hulk or Jovetic, while Tottenham are still working hard to secure Adebayor. Arsenal won’t make a move until the future of RVP is sorted so if Lewandowski does come to the Prem, it won’t be any time soon.

    Would Love Lewandowski At Spurs. I Think He Would Be Better Than Adebayor As He Would Take More Chances And Score More Goals.

    No we need the Hulk. He must be incredible Hulk. But he better not be in green.

    Not sure how you conclude that Arsenal are interested, haven’t they just bought Pod and Giroud?

    Also suspect Chelsea will want a bigger name (not literally!)

    don’t judge players from euro performances in that case we don’t need a striker we got bedntner lewandowski scored 30goals last season u cant score 30 and not be a proven goal scorer ill welcome him we have a bunch of players that struggled to get a measly 5 to 6 goals everyone wake up. follow me on twitter @kyekye45

    he’s good but i dont think he’s better the Ade and doesnt offer anything and will be more expensive so whats the point .Leandro and Remy and Ade ahead of this guy

      I don’t know about Remy. He’s in weaker then Bundesliga Ligue 1 and stats are sayin just one.
      Remy 42 apps – 20 goals – 48%
      Lewandowski 46 apps – 30 goals – 65%
      Adebayor 33 apps – 17 goals – 52%
      Leandro 28 apps – 14 goals – 50%

      Of course we can’t compare this leagues because if some1 is good in one it does not mean it same in another league. But stats are saying that Lewandoski is best.

    lewandowski is the type of player we need we have enough players to sell like nicholas 52 and rvp all our attacking options is now left footed players need to add rightfoot player lewandowski. And floorsh that are not useful in our list. Gunners 4life

    I think we need a real attacking Midfielder the mold of Lucas Silva, Belhanda, Shunji Kagawa etc can bring.
    Here is how my team would be then. I would go for either 3.5.2 or 3.6.1 or 3.4.3

    —-Giruod, Podolski
    —–Kagawa-Wilshere
    ——-Gervinho
    ——Song – Arteta
    Sagna, Vermaleen, Konsienly
    ———Szechny

    Gervinho gets free role in the wings and Podolski free attack role.

    It will allow super domination in the midfield, play the new players to their strengths, give the other squad members like Miyachi, OX, Park, Ramsey and Rosicky play time. Walcott will not be missed in this set up

    The empire is crumbling is just funny united are the only club in England which will defo last for decades when ffp comes into play city won’t stand a chance Chelsea won’t bother that much as they haven’t for years got lucky last year they are best in Europe but not in England don’t make sense Ffs they are third best in London arsenal and united are built to last as platini brings the hammer down why haven’t city bought anyone it’s because they have all the money but new rules means they can’t buy united have 500mill fans if they all spend 1 euro on merchandise it’s a lot of money soon enough we will be untouchable along with madrid

    fergie is united problem! He started this arsenal manner of not buying players but always complaining that it is too expensive to pay 30 million pounds on lukas modric when carrol was bought 4 how much? If united fall fergie and glazer should be sent away 4 not knowing what to do can u compel united and city.

    Robert Lowandowski would join Man Utd if he’s leaving Dortmund anytime soon.He would like to partner with former teamate again.I think for the Polish national team coach to reveal what he said about Lowandowski coming coming to Old Trafford speaks volumes.Atleast we need a serious minded striker to make Rooney wake up.He think Man Utd is his ashtray where he behaves like he chooses.I also think it’s Chicharito’s time to score with Kagawa around to provide deft passes.We had a pathetic midfield really.Have baked midfielder.A 38 years Scholes played better than every United midfielder.I hope Tom Cleverly stays injury free too.
