Arsenal and Chelsea have been keeping tabs on Lech Poznan’s David Kownacki, the young striker being dubbed as ‘the next Robert Lewandowski’.

The 20-year-old has attracted attention from some of Europe’s top clubs with his performances for the Polish outfit this season, including Arsenal and Chelsea. And, according to The Sun, both clubs have sent scouts to watch him in action this season ahead of potential moves this summer.

Kownacki has scored 11 goals for Poznan so far this season and is set to lead the line for Poland’s Under-21 side at this summer’s European Championships, where he will be hoping to impress onlookers.

The young Pole has been likened to Lewandowski due to his similar style of play, with many picking out similarities when the Bayern star began his career at Poznan.

Kownacki made the breakthrough into the Poznan senior side in 2013 where he made just 13 appearances and scored two goals for the club that season. It was not until the following year that the youngster played regularly. He has since made 108 total appearances for the Polish outfit, scoring 27 goals in the process.
