There Is “Genuine Interest From Arsenal” In Polish Midfielder
A source at Sevilla claims Arsene Wenger is showing a keen interest in signing midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak, according to reports today.
Despite being linked with the likes of Sami Khedira, Morgan Schneiderlin and William Carvalho, Arsene failed to bring in a defensive midfielder in the summer and it’s certainly cost us already this season as Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini just aren’t up to the job anymore.
However, it looks like the boss is already making plans to strengthen this area as the Daily Star carry a quote from an apparent source at Sevilla who claims that Arsenal are showing a keen interest in Polish international Krychowiak – although it’s not clear if we’ll pursue a move for the 24-year-old in January or wait until next summer.
This so-called source said:
“There seems a genuine interest from Arsenal.
“Though it remains to be seen whether they will make a move in January or wait until next summer to try to get him.”
Krychowiak only joined Sevilla from French club Reims in the summer but he’s continued to flourish in Spain after putting in a string of impressive displays at the heart of midfield.
The Pole doesn’t have the ‘big-name’ status of some of the defensive midfielders we’ve been linked with in the recent past so it may be something of an anti-climax if he is the player Arsene goes for as our next holding midfielder.
However, I have my doubts over this report as I’m always dubious about unnamed ‘sources’, so I’ll reserve judgement until something more concrete comes out. Plus, I highly doubt Sevilla would sell just a few months after buying the player so any potential deal would most probably have to wait until the summer.
