Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s bubble just got burst as it seems that the Gunners will miss on one of their most important transfer targets, as German manager Jurgen Klopp dismissed a potential move away from Borussia Dortmund by club striker Robert Lewandowski.
The 23-year-old striker has admitted being very interested in the possibility of taking on a new challenge after winning the event with Dortmund this season, leaving Bayern Munich behind in the fight for the Bundesliga and the DFB Pokal.
“We will not sell Robert Lewandowski – not for any price,” Klopp told German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung.
“Our biggest obligation is to have a strong squad and one that enables you to play a successful game.
“He will remain at our club.”
Arsene Wenger’s reconstruction starts upfront, as the Frenchman is looking to bring reinforcements for the attacking side of his team. The biggest problem he’s currently facing is not knowing whether captain Robin Van Persie will remain with the club or not, so Wenger’s trying to keep a safe distance from incidents like those which took place last summer with Fabregas and Nasri.
Giroud, Huntelaar, Leandro Damiao and Burak Yilmaz have all also been linked with the Gunners, but no official confirmation has been heard of yet.
