According to Goal.com, 23-year-old Polish striker, Robert Lewandowski has stated that he wishes to play in the English Premier League:
This [the Premier League] is a league in which I would like to play and I hope to manage that at some point, he told Polish television station TVP.
Lewandowski's current club, Borrussia Dortmund, is now in a situation similar to Arsenal, as the Gunners are dealing with their own superstar who wants out—Robin van Persie. Dortmund is desperate to sign their star player to an extension.
At the very least, Dortmund would like to see Lewandowski stick around for the upcoming season, as they hope to win a third straight Bundesliga title and make a strong push in the UEFA Champions League.
The young striker has helped his club to consecutive German titles and a German cup victory. Lewandowski scored 30 goals last season in 46 appearances for Dortmund, and added two goals in his five Euro 2012 games.
Lewandowski's comments are likely to start a bidding war among the top premier league clubs—Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea to name a few. If Arsenal is able to land him, they could conceivably cut ties with van Persie without losing much scoring.
