Borussia Dortmund front man Robert Lewandowski is the subject of interest from both Manchester United and Arsenal.
Giant Poland international has been told by his team-mates to stay put in the Bundesliga as opposed to moving to Old Trafford this summer.

For the last year there have been rumours suggesting that in-form Borussia Dortmund attacker Robert Lewandowski could be set to quit the Bundesliga champions at the end of this season and sign for Premier League title holders-elect Manchester United.
Last summer those were silenced when Sir Alex Ferguson brought Robin Van Persie from Arsenal to Old Trafford, but recently they have resurfaced, with this story in the Daily Mail a prime example.
What’s more, Arsenal have too been linked with the signing of the Borussia Dortmund attacker – along with two other Bundesliga stars.
Twenty-four-year-old Lewandowski has been at Dortmund for three years now and during that period the tall forward has established himself as one of European football’s most deadly and fearsome attackers.
Lewandowski has found the back of the net an eye-catching 51 times in only 91 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s outfit – a highly-impressive strike rate that compares with the best attackers currently operating on the continent.
The striker has scored goals wherever he has played in his career to date, whether that be for his national team Poland, for whom he has scored 17 times in 53 internationals, or for Polish outfit Lech Poznan, where he netted 32 times in just 58 appearances.
Meanwhile, this campaign has seen Lewandowski continue on in a similar vein or form for club and country, with the striker scoring 29 in 45 in all competitions, but interestingly enough he also has 15 assists to his name, which is a part of his game that is very often overlooked by some people.
So you can very much understand just why both Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger have been keeping close tabs on Lewandowski for some time now, and the fact that Lewandowski has just a year remaining on his contract and no intention to extend his deal means he could be available for a bargain price.
Runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich are also reportedly keen to bring the deadly front man to the Allianz Arena this summer, as well as a host of big-name Serie A clubs too, but you do feel that his particular qualities would suit the Premier League best.
Tall, with a good first touch, quick and with a real eye for goal, while strong enough to survive the rough and tumble of the Premier League, Lewandowski could be a fantastic signing for either Arsenal or Manchester United – whatever the price.
