Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea are planning to lure Borussia Dortmund right-back Lukasz Piszczek.

Arsenal are ready to replace Bakary Sagna with Piszczek, should the France international leave at the end of the season.

Chelsea nearly won Piszczek after the Euro 2012, in which Premier League scouts were sent to watch the Polish international. Jose Bosingwa was released and they needed replacement at Stamford Bridge.

Piszczek is regarded as Arsenal's first-choice target following another impressive season in Germany, having also helped the Bundesliga giants to this year's Champions League final at Wembley.

He has gone on to establish himself as one of the best full-backs in the Bundesliga, and would be a welcome addition to any Premier League club this summer.
