Liverpool believed to be keen to bring Poland international striker to Anfield.
Liverpool are thought to be readying a bid for Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski after the 23 year-old turned down the offer of a new contract to stay at Signal Iduna Park.
Lewandowski played a major role in making Borussia Dortmund Bundesliga champions this season, but according to his agent, the revised terms put to the Poland international forward were not up to the amount expected.
“Whether Robert will play in black and yellow again next season is still open for debate,” said Lewandowski’s representative Cezary Kucharski to German newspaper Westfälische Rundschau, as reported by TZ Online.
Given Lewandowski’s fine form this season, Borussia Dortmund were prepared to offer Lewandowski improved terms despite a contract running out as far away as summer 2014.
However, Kucharski claims they were not fair given comparable rates with other first team players.
“We are disappointed with the offer. A player should belong to the class of Robert the best paid soccer players with Dortmund, “said Kucharski.
Given that Lewandowski has scored 20 goals and provided 8 assists in just 33 Bundesliga appearances this season, he probably has a point.
Liverpool are certainly in the market for a finisher this summer, as their remarkable propensity to hit the woodwork has cost them many a point this season.
Lewandowski’s fine record of putting away chances – not to mention his quality link play – is believed to have led Anfield officials to conclude that he would be a great strike partner for Luis Suarez up front for Liverpool.
Given the Poland international could prove one of the stars of UEFA Euro 2012 in his home country, a deal would be best wrapped up sooner rather than later, as his price could soar.
