In-form Lewandowski gunning for Arsenal

The 25-year-old striker celebrated a sensational second-half hat-trick on Friday as Jurgen Klopp's side moved to the top of the Bundesliga
Robert Lewandowski continued his purple patch in front of goal with an 18-minute hat-trick in Borussia Dortmund's 6-1 win over Stuttgart on Friday and then set his sights on gunning down Arsenal in the Champions League.

The Poland international now has 13 goals in all competitions this season and his efforts helped Jurgen Klopp’s men take first place in the Bundesliga, one point ahead of second-placed Bayern Munich.

The 25-year-old's contract at Signal Iduna Park expires next summer and despite enjoying a fine run of goalscoring form for the club, Lewandowski is expected to move onto pastures new in January or at the end of the season.

The transfer speculation has done little to affect his performances on the pitch, however, and the striker is already eyeing further goals in Europe.

“It was a very nice game with lots of goals,” the Bundesliga's top scorer told Sky Sports. “We are very satisfied. We have achieved what we set out. Now we focus on Arsenal and hope we will also get three points.”

Dortmund's Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich are strongly fancied to win the race for Lewandowski and BVB coach Klopp has already begun to prepare for life after his star striker with the summer signing of Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The forward has scored six times in his first 11 games for the club and the former Saint-Etienne man added to his tally on Friday with the sixth and final goal of the game following his strike partner's hat-trick and solitary strikes from Marco Reus and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

BVB host Arsenal at Signal Iduna Park on Wednesday in their latest Champions League group stage clash.
