Arsenal are interested in signing Grzegorz Krychowiak from Sevilla in the January transfer window, according to The Sun.

The British tabloid claims that the Gunners will launch a bid of £33 million to sign the Poland international defensive midfielder.

According to the report, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger “has made the signing of a top-quality holding midfielder his priority after losing Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla to long-term injuries”.

Krychowiak has been on the books of Sevilla since 2014 and has established himself as one of the best players for the Spanish club.

The 25-year-old former Bordeaux midfielder has created four chances in 16 La Liga appearances for Sevilla so far this season.

The Pole has a pass accuracy of 84% and a shot accuracy of 30%, and has won 47 headers, eight dribbles and 27 dribbles.

Sevilla are eighth in La Liga table at the moment with 23 points from 16 matches, eight points behind fourth-placed Celta de Vigo.

Arsenal are currently second in the Premier League table with 36 points from 17 games, just two points behind leaders Leicester City.
