Arsenal and Manchester City are reportedly ready to battle it out over a January move for Robert Lewandowski.

Arsenal and Manchester City will reportedly battle it out for the signing of Robert Lewandowski in January.

The Polish international recently denied reports that he has already agreed to join Bayern Munich and admitted that he would like to play in England.

According to The Mirror, that news has alerted Arsenal and City, who want to boost their squads for the second half of the season.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is believed to be prepared to spend up to £25m on Lewandowski, despite the fact that his Borussia Dortmund contract runs out in the summer.

Arsenal have made no secret of the fact that they want another striker and fear that they will miss out on previous targets Luis Suarez and Wayne Rooney.

City, meanwhile, will sacrifice Edin Dzeko as part of the deal if required. The Bosnian has found himself on the sidelines under boss Manuel Pellegrini after an encouraging start.

Dortmund have maintained that they will not sell their prized asset to rivals Bayern, so a big Premier League offer is sure to tempt them before he leaves as a free agent in the summer.
