Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is reportedly still a January transfer target for Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Lewandowski, who is out of contract at the end of the season, was linked with Man Utd throughout the summer, as well as Bayern Munich, and had been widely expected to leave Dortmund at some point next year.

Last month, the Poland international stated that he will officially sign a deal with Pep Guardiola's side at the start of 2014, but later claimed he is yet to make a final decision about his future.

And according to, the three Premier League clubs have not given up hope of agreeing a deal for Lewandowski when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

Bayern remain the bookmakers' favourites to win the race to sign the 25-year-old, but Arsenal, Chelsea and United are said to have all made contact with his representatives to register their interest.

Lewandowski, who scored the winning goal in Dortmund's 2-1 win at Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday night, had earlier this month given English clubs hope that a move to Munich may not happen.

"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," he told the Daily 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."
