Arsenal are on the verge of completing a deal for a relatively hot commodity in the transfer market, as they are expected to sign Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak.
Telegraph journalist Jason Burt claims that this move is on the horizon, and he announced it via his personal Twitter account.

Krychowiak will be a welcome addition to the Gunners, with reports suggesting Arsene Wenger is keen to add another defensive midfielder to the squad to provide competition to Francis Coquelin.
The Polish international has starred for Sevilla since joining the club from Reims in 2014 and has caught the eye of a number of top European clubs.
The Gunners are expected to activate the 25-year-old’s release clause, which is believed to be valued at £23m.
It remains to be seen whether Arsenal will be able to seal the deal on Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, who they are reportedly prepared to fork over £50m for.
