Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Robert Lewandowski transfer reports

Lewandowski Poland

Robert Lewandowski has been named as a surprise transfer target for Liverpool.

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?

A report in The Daily Star exclusively claimed last night that Robert Lewandowski is a top transfer target for the Reds, and that the transfer will be funded by Middle Eastern investors.

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? 

And then there is the topic of Lewandowski himself, who was earlier this month quoted by The Mail telling teammate Mario Gotze to forget about 'silly' transfer talk linking him to Liverpool.

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...
