Liverpool have been linked with Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.

According to a report in the Mirror, Liverpool have made Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski their number one summer target following Jurgen Klopp’s appointment as manager.

The German coach signed a three-year deal with the Reds on Friday, sparking a frenzy on Merseyside with supporters gearing up for exciting times under his stewardship.

One key aspect of Klopp’s managerial style is his ability to bring in younger players who are relatively unknown to most, develop them accordingly and turn them into world class stars.

A number of names have already been mentioned as possible signings, with supporters speculating as to whether he will return to Dortmund for the likes of Neven Subotic or Ilkay Gundogan.

However, fresh reports in the Mirror state Liverpool are eyeing bigger – Robert Lewandowski.

Klopp signed the Poland international from Lech Poznan in 2010 and the striker soon made headlines all around the world, scoring goals for fun and helping Dortmund become Bundesliga champions.

The 27-year-old is the very definition of world class, and his latest goal exploits for Bayern are borderline ridiculous as he tops this season’s charts with 16 goals in just 11 games.

Lewandowski would be a phenomenal signing for Liverpool, so good in fact that a number of supporters have taken to Twitter in order to dismiss the idea completely – rightly labelling it as unrealistic.
