Arsenal will reportedly make a bid for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski if a move for Karim Benzema falls through.

Real Madrid frontman Benzema has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his striking options for the forthcoming season.

It has been suggested that the France international would be interested in a move to North London, although the player's agent has stated that a transfer away from Real is unlikely.

That could pave the way for Arsenal to switch focus on Lewandowski, who signed for Bayern from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer last year.
