Liverpool fans are used to big name players being linked to the club, but recent experiences have shown them not to get their hopes up, as seen by Alexis Sanchez choosing to move to Arsenal instead.
The hope is that new manager Jurgen Klopp will possess more pulling power than predecessor Brendan Rodgers did, but can he really convince Robert Lewandowski to join him?
It's a story with plenty of holes, who are these mysterious money men? Do they want a full scale takeover? What are current owners FSG's intentions?
Having quit on Jurgen Klopp at Dortmund for Bayern, his emotional ties to the Liverpool manager are not what they might have once been for his former manager, while the German champions are not likely to be willing to sell.
Here is a look at how Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter to the reports... hint: very sceptically...
We’re not getting Lewandowski and we’re not getting Aubameyang. Small chance of Gotze and we’re not being taken over by an Arab (yet) #LFC— Ramalamadingdong (@HershySquit) April 19, 2016
