Report - 'Arsenal scouts have been monitoring' £4m Krychowiak

Emirates Stadium 2

Arsenal are being linked with a potential move for Polish star Grzegor Krychowiak.

The Sun has reported that Arsenal are interested in a possible deal for Sevilla star Grzegorz Krychowiak.

The Sun’s report claims that Arsenal have been extensively scouting the holding midfielder ahead of a possible winter move when the January transfer window opens in just over two months.

“Arsene Wenger is keen on Seville midfield ace Grzegorz Krychowiak,” reports The Sun.

“Arsenal scouts have been monitoring the Poland international in La Liga as well as at Poland’s historic win over Germany earlier this month.”

Krychowiak’s main position is as a defensive midfielder, which is an area of the squad where Arsene Wenger could realistically make a signing this winter.

The Gunners were linked with a move for Sami Khedira of Real Madrid and William Carvalho of Sporting Lisbon last summer but moves never happened, with Wenger drafting in Calum Chambers and trusting Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta in the role in front of Arsenal’s back four.

It does have the characteristics of a typical Wenger signing in the respect that Krychowiak is lower profile than other reported targets in his position and he’s coming from a league where the style of play is traditionally in tune with the style Arsenal use in the Premier League.

Wenger has always maintained that it’s difficult to do high profile deals for the big name players halfway through a season, but Arsenal appear to have been tracking the Pole for most of this season.

That means they will be well researched and knowledgeable on the player if they decide to focus their resources on making him their winter transfer priority over moves elsewhere in the market.
