Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will only move for a world-class striker this summer and has made Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski his main transfer target, according to The Sun.
The Gunners have seen an attempt to sign Lyon and France forward Alexandre Lacazette unsuccessful earlier this summer and are looking short of options at centre forward ahead of the Premier League season starting this weekend.
The latest report suggests that Wenger will not sign a new attacker just for the sake of it and will only target world-class players.
Lewandowski has established himself as one of the most-feared number nines in the global game and has been a critical player for the Bundesliga powerhouses over recent seasons.

Arsenal have been linked with the Poland international sporadically over a number of seasons, especially during his time at Borussia Dortmund, and the speculation looks set to start up again.
In reality, the likelihood of Lewandowski swapping the Allianz Arena for North London seems slim, with Bayern surely very reluctant to let their main attacking weapon leave.
Should the Gunners pull off such a deal, it would be a real statement of intent and propel the Emirates Stadium side into contention for major silverware in 2016-17.
