Arsenal are reportedly planning a shock £22million deal to sign Sevilla midfield powerhouse Grzegorz Krychowiak this summer.
It is said that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning to make new additions to his midfield before the close of the summer transfer window on Sept 1, and is keen on landing Krychowiak after sending scouts to watch the midfielder in action earlier this week against European champions Barcelona.
Francis Coquelin has so far not disappointed since his rise to prominence in the defensive midfield role at Arsenal, but there is fear that if he gets injured or suffers a drop in form, the defense will be left without a shield in front of the back four, Hence the need for a complement.
Krychowiak who formerly played for Bordeaux and Stade Reim before joining Sevilla in 2014 has made 20 appearances for Poland and has won the Europa league in just his first season at Sevilla, turning out very impressive displays that has attracted Arsenal.
