Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is said to be eyeing an ambitious raid on Bayern Munich for former charge Robert Lewandowski, according to reports in the Daily Telegraph.
The 27-year-old is now one of the world’s most in demand strikers after bagging an impressive 23 goals in 26 appearances across all competitions, which has attracted interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea.
However, reports are now suggesting that Liverpool are hoping to jump in on the interest and make a move of their own.
Klopp is hopeful of convincing the Polish international to work with him again after their successful stint together at Borussia Dortmund.
However, the deal may be a non-starter should Liverpool fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League, which would obviously be a deal breaker for the player.
Many feel that the Reds haven’t adequately replaced Luis Suarez since he left for Barcelona in 2014, and though Lewandowski would be an ideal candidate, there is a feeling that the move is just out of the club’s reach.
