Arsenal have been handed a massive boost in signing Grzegorz Krychowiak after the midfielder dropped a hint that he could leave Sevilla.
The 24-year-old joined the La Liga outfit from French side Reims earlier in the summer and has already impressed in the first half of this season. He has been an integral player for Unai Emery's side in the defensive midfield position and his performance has seen him attract interest from top clubs across Europe.
According to talkSPORT, the Gunners and Inter Milan are keen on securing the services of the Polish international in the mid-season transfer window. Krychowiak has expressed his desire to play in the Champions League every year and a move to the Emirates will help him fulfil it this season.
"I needed to change club and became much more ambitious. Each year, I want to be playing in Europe, and the goal is to be in the Champions League," Krychowiak told AS.
"Sevilla are a great club, but also a club from which you can make the jump to highest level. If you're good at Sevilla, many sides become interested in you because there are always many opportunities to impress."
"When I changed club, I knew I made a step forward. Emery places strong emphasis on strategy and tactics. During the match, everything must work perfectly. I learn a lot everyday, there is progress."
"I only look at the results of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico. It's difficult to compare with them because they're three great teams, but we can always give more."
"In life you have to be ambitious and this club are. We don't talk about fighting for the title because there are two very strong teams, but we can finish third," he added.
Meanwhile, Sevilla are aware of the reported interest from Arsenal and the Spanish club's sporting director Monchi earlier confirmed there has been no offer from the north London club for Krychowiak's signature.
