Liverpool willing to go big for Klopp favourite if this development occurs

Liverpool could launch a massive move for Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski this summer if a potential Middle Eastern takeover happens at Anfield, according to reports from the Daily Star.

It’s understood that the president of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Khalifa, has already opened early talks with Fenway Sports Group – the Reds’ owners – regarding a move to buy the club valued at close to £650m, and his investment, allied with the mega £5bn Premier League TV deal could elevate the Merseysiders to a new level in the transfer market.

And reports claim that, should this happen, the club will make reuniting Jurgen Klopp and Lewandowski at Liverpool their priority.

The German manager nurtured the Poland international’s talents at Dortmund during their time together, helping to turn the 27-year-old into one of the most lethal strikers on the planet.

The Kop chief is thought to be keen on working with the player once again, and the added financial clout of a Middle Eastern takeover could open up the sort of spending power that would be needed to lure Lewandowski away from Bayern Munich.
