Arsenal chasing 17-year-old Polish wonderkid Dawid Kownacki for just €160k

Lech Poznan dynamo Dawid Kownacki is being targeted by Arsenal.

Arsenal have an excellent record of bringing through top talent - and that talent is often sourced from around Europe.

The likes of Cesc Fabregas, Gael Clichy and Wojciech Szczesny all came through at Arsenal after moving from their homelands at a young age.

And now they look set to bring in a compatriot of Szczesny’s - according to reports in Poland.

It is being reported that Arsenal are interested in signing Lech Poznan attacking midfielder Dawid Kownacki.

The 17-year-old is one of the highest rated talents in his country - and broke into the Lech first-team last year after impressing at youth level.

Arsenal can reportedly have him for as little as €160k as he has not yet signed a professional deal - quite an outstanding price for a player that Lech want to slap a €5 million asking price on if he signs a new deal at the club.

Arsenal would apparently be willing to sign the player before sending him back out on loan to Lech Poznan 

Kownacki is wanted by a host of other teams and you can see why - he already has two goals for the club in just eight games and last month starred for Poland’s under-17s.

He might not be the type of big name signing that Arsenal fans will still hope to see - but he would certainly be another one for the future if they got their man.

Here he is in action …
