Robert Lewandowski has alerted every major English Premier League club by admitting he would love to play in England.
The Polish international, who spearheaded his country in the World Cup qualifier against England at Wembley on Tuesday, was thought to be close to a move to Bayern Munich in the summer.
However, Lewandowski, who has so far rejected Borussia Dortmund's offer of a new contract, insisted nothing has been agreed with Bayern, giving the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City encouragement to make a move in January.
Lewandowski's contract with Dortmund expires at the end of the season, and reports in Germany suggested the 25-year-old striker had already come to a pre-contract agreement with Bayern. However, according to the Pole, that couldn't be farther from the truth.
"I will be able to sign a contract (with any club) in January, but I have never said that I will sign a contract with Bayern," Lewandowski told the Telegraph.
"It was a misunderstanding. It is true I had an opportunity to speak with Sir Alex Ferguson (last year), but we didn't mention the transfer.
"One day I would like to play in Premier League. It would be a great experience."
Arsenal are in desperate need of proven striker, and failed in bids for Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain in last summer's transfer window.
Arsene Wenger will look at a January cut-price deal for Lewandowski as ideal, or even a free transfer next summer, but is set to face stiff competition from other Premier League clubs.
Chelsea, like Arsenal are also in need of a proven forward, with the current crop at Stamford Bridge misfiring. Jose Mourinho was desperate to land Wayne Rooney from Manchester United, but with the Premier League champions refusing to sell to a direct rival, Chelsea might have to look elsewhere, and they don't come much better in Europe than Lewandowski.
Both Manchester clubs have also shown an interest in Lewandowski in the past and could yet make a move, although both United and City are well stocked in strikers.
After all is said and done, though, it still looks most likely that Lewandowski will sign for Bayern Munich in the summer; but if, as the striker hinted, all is not well with him and the German champions, then rest assured one of the Premier League clubs will be lying in wait.
