Ray Parlour comments on Liverpool’s interest in Robert Lewandowski, compares him to Suarez

Lewandowski Dortmund

Arsenal legend Parlour believes signing Robert Lewandowski would be a huge move for Liverpool.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has reacted to the news that Liverpool could swoop for Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich, comparing the impact he could have to that Luis Suarez had an Anfield.

Parlour said: “I’m sure Liverpool fans are delighted with the appointment of [Jurgen] Klopp, it’s a gamble, but it’s a good gamble. We know about Lewandowski, how well he’s playing, and I’m sure he [Klopp] would love to get him to Liverpool. What a signing that would be, it would be like a Suarez turning up at Liverpool."

The Mirror ran a report over the weekend claiming that the Reds are looking at the in-form striker, following the appointment of Jurgen Klopp as head coach on Merseyside.

It was under Klopp that the Polish international made his name, scoring 103 goals in 187 games, and earning a reputation as one of the most clinical strikers in Europe.

Many would suggest that Liverpool would have no chance of signing Lewandowski, with any number of bigger sides hoping to bring him in, but the impact of Klopp is likely to give the Merseyside club a big advantage in the transfer market.

Parlour has admitted that bringing in Lewandowski would be a huge move for the Reds, and the Arsenal hero has compared the impact he could have, to the impact that Luis Suarez had whilst with the club.

Suarez scored 82 goals in 133 games for the Reds, and almost led Liverpool to a league title, and if Lewandowski arrives at Anfield, and has that sort of impact, he will quickly become a fan favourite for the long suffering supporters of Liverpool.
