Liverpool boss desperate to sign Europe’s hottest striker, money is in place

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is eager to set up a reunion with Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and has the money to fund a deal, according to reports from the Liverpool Echo.

The Poland international is currently, arguably, the most dangerous forward on the planet, with his 14 goals the joint-most scored by any player in any of Europe’s top five leagues this season.

Although Lewandowski currently plies his trade at the Allianz Arena, the 27-year-old rose to prominence as a part of Klopp’s Dortmund side after moving to the Westfalenstadion from Lech Poznan in 2010.

And reports from the Echo, citing SportBild, claim that the new Kop boss is keen to lure him to Merseyside, and even has the funds at his disposal for a swoop.

Lewandowski is known to be a huge admirer of Klopp, however, the likelihood of him leaving perennial Bundesliga champions and Champions League regulars Bayern is low.

His record of 14 goals in league action this term is equal to that of Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but the former has registered his tally in 11 games, rather than the latter’s 12.
