Newly appointed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes he can bring his free scoring former Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski to Anfield.
The former Dortmund boss who has been dubbed a miracle worker Klopp in certain quarters of the media is believed to be ready to stun the football world with a move for the 27-year-old Pole in the summer.
Bayern were lining up Klopp as their successor to Pep Guardiola with the Spaniard considering moving on at the end of the season when his three year contract with the Bavarian greats is up.
But the Bavarians who have been beaten to the punch by Liverpool’s decision to axe Brendan Rodgers following last Sunday’s Merseyside derby will now face a fight to keep hold on to Lewandowski who has already scored 21 goals for club and country in just 14 appearances so far this season, including five against Wolfsburg.
Bayern will want at least £60 million for the player they took on a Bosman free much to Klopp’s disappointment, the German hailing the man he signed from Lech Poznan for just £3.5 million one of his greatest ever players.
Reports coming out of Germany suggest Lewandowski has already indicated an interest to work under his former boss especially now that the gaffer has moved to the Premier League.
Arsenal and Manchester United are also interested in the Polish goal machine but Klopp would have a head start.
