Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak has left the door open with regards to a move to Arsenal after admitting that he has heard about the interest from the Gunners. The north London club have been long-time admirers of the Polish international, but are yet to make a concrete move for the player.
The 25-year-old midfielder, however, has revealed that all matters relating to his future will be handled solely by his agent leaving him free to concentrate on his football for current employers Sevilla. Arsene Wenger is a big admirer of Krychowiak, but will have to fork out £32.2m ($47m) to sign him after the club agreed a new deal with an increased release clause in November last year.
"The Premier League? Some say it's the best in the world, other people think that's La Liga," Krychowiak said, as quoted by the London Evening Standard.
"I've heard about Arsenal, but I leave it to my agent. I trust him and he's the one who deals with that kind of the stuff. I can't think about things like that. I have to keep my mind free of any distraction and just focus on doing my job for Sevilla."
The French manager has indicated that Arsenal will dip into the transfer market in January and bring in cover for the injured Francis Coquelin in the defensive midfield role and have been linked with a number of players. FC Basel's Mohamed Elneny is reportedly close to completing a move to the Emirates Stadium, with his current employers admitting that the move could materialise in the coming days.
Krychowiak, however, will prove to be a more proven candidate compared to the Egyptian, but will cost considerably more than the £7m ($10.2m) fee the Gunners are expected to pay for Elneny. The Polish star, who played an important role in Sevilla's Europa League triumph for a record fourth time last season, has admitted that there are still a number of aspects he can improve in his game to become the best.
"I definitely want to be a better player, but it will only happen when the team does well.
"There are a million things I can still improve. The moment I start thinking that I'm a finished product as a player will be the moment I start regressing. I believe I can be a much better, more complete player at the end of 2016," the Polish midfielder explained.
