Arsenal striker swap deal with Dortmund on the cards?

Arsenal’s swap deal with Borussia Dortmund seems to be on the cards, but a possible move will only occur after this summer’s EURO 2012.

The Gunners are looking to offload striker Nicklas Bendtner, and have been linked with many of Dortmunds players including Gotze, Kagawa, Kevin Grosskreutz and Lewandowski. The first one has been long linked with the Gunners, and Wenger has publically stated his interest in him, but a long contract with Dortmund will probably stop him from leaving.

At the moment it looks like Arsenal are much closer to signing Grosskreutz, who claimed that he’s looking forward to offers from a Premiership team. Bendtner also seems interested in leaving the Gunners for good, and said yesterday: “I have stated all the time that I am focused on the European Championship. When it is finished, I will handle my club situation,”

When asked about a link with Dortmund he added: “It’s a fantastic club, there are no doubts about that.”

Arsene Wenger is still looking for another striker, and either Lewandowski or Grosskreutz would be great additions for the squad, although Lewandowski seems to be the right kind of player Arsenal could really do with next season.

Who do you think should join?

  1. Bendtner + 10m for Kagawa or Lewadowski is a good deal… We need an experienced and talented CAM like Kagawa.. Cmon Wenger We need to end our Trophy Drought….

  4. I dont think we should get any from Dortmund, like we are close of signing M’Vila and Giroud, sell Bendtner to Borussia Dortmund. These are the players that we have been linked with.
    Lukas Podolski fee:10.9million Wage:£100,000 Bought
    Olivier Giroud fee:13million Wage:£70,000
    Jan Vertonghen fee:7million Wage:£60,000
    Yann M,Vila fee:17.7million wage:£60,000
    Eden Hazard fee:30million wage:£150,000
    Jack Butland fee:4million wage:20,000
    David Hoilett fee:12million wage:50,000

  5. Either I can`t pronounce them or I`ve never heard of them, or both, so there`s no point in making any comments. I can understand Wenger playing his cards close to his chest since most players who are associated with Arsenal, or even mentioned ,end up somewhere else or stay put. We seem to find it difficult to reach a conclusion. Is this because we don`t have a singular decision maker? At the risk of sounding `repetitive`, (I was going to say “like a cracked record” but the younger ones wouldn`t understand), we need Dein back.

  6. If wenger doesn’t bring home any trophy this season he should just resign or be SACKED!!!
    I have nothing to say bout our transfers or players,because it seems we get the same news every summer,so actions need to be taken,his days are numbered,his job is on the line!!!

  7. we dont need a back up striker for van persie. joel campbell will be playing for us next season. it will be much better if arsenal would go for kagawa insted. we really need a AM and DM. i feel that kagawa is the missing link in arsenals attack

  8. Wenger should give dortmund bendtner + 10 million pounds 4 lewandowski, use chamak+8 million pounds 4 giroud n sign matias saures frm anderlect with anoda defender
