After Lewandowski's success, Klopp reportedly tells Liverpool scouts to watch Dawid Kownacki

Liverpool scouts are reportedly looking at Lech Poznan youngster Dawid Kownacki.

According to The Mirror, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told the club's scouts to watch Lech Poznan wonderkid Dawid Kownacki.

Reds boss Klopp had success with a host of Polish players during his time as Borussia Dortmund boss, with Lukasz Piszczek, Jakub Blaszczykowski and Robert Lewandowski all making their names with the Bundesliga giants under Klopp's stewardship.

Recent reports from the Daily Mail have suggested that Klopp is keen to add Polish international midfielder Piotr Zielinski to his side this summer, and now The Mirror claim that the Liverpool chief is also keen on Lech Poznan starlet Dawid Kownacki, who has in fact been compared to Lewandowski.

Kownacki, 19, has been with Lech Poznan since the age of eight, and after hitting seven goals last season, he has scored the same amount so far this term too.

The 6ft 1in forward, who can also play out wide, has been tipped as one of the future stars of Polish football, and Klopp has allegedly told his scouts to watch Kownacki in action ahead of the summer transfer window.

Given Klopp's work with the three aforementioned players from his time at Dortmund, other Polish stars could be tempted to try their own luck and work with Klopp at Liverpool, in a bid to emulate the likes of Blaszczykowski and Lewandowski.

That's a hard task, but Klopp's success with Lewandowski could see him try and land another Polish striker in Kownacki and develop him into a star at Anfield.
