Liverpool Offered A Chance To Land This Bayern Munich Forward: Dream Option For Klopp?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent edition of The Transfer Window podcast, transfer guru Ian McGarry stated that Liverpool have been offered a chance to land Bayern Munich forward, Robert Lewandowski, this month. McGarry said (via The Daily Star),

“Lewandowski has been offered to Liverpool, to Manchester United and to Manchester City, each of whom have expressed a tepid amount of interest in the player regarding the possibility of signing him.

“However, each of them has also said that the €110 million (£94m) which Bayern are leaking to the German media that they would require to allow Lewandowski to leave is far too much for a player of that age.”

Lewandowski’s Outstanding Goal-Scoring Record Last Season

Lewandowski had another majestic season with the Bavarian giants recently as he continued to score goals at an incredible rate for them over the past 12 months. The Poland international banged in 48 goals and provided nine assists in 40 matches for the German giants in the previous campaign across various competitions.

The 33-year-old showed no signs of slowing down and gave a good account of himself by averaging 4.7 shots, 1.1 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per game in the 2020-21 Bundesliga season. He even linked up play well with his teammates in the opponent’s half based on his pass completion rate of 77.2% in the German top tier (stats via whoscored).

Will Lewandowski Be A Dream Option For Liverpool?

Lewandowski is a natural finisher in the final third and can still score goals regularly at the highest level. He has a knack for finding space and is often accurate with his shot attempts. The experienced Poland international can create chances out of nothing and tends to be the man for the big occasions.

However, at 33, Lewandowski is entering the twilight years of his playing career, so he doesn’t fit Liverpool’s transfer policy. Even then, Jurgen Klopp would be wise to make an exception as the Polish striker could potentially fire the Merseyside outfit to another Premier League title this season.

There is no doubt that Lewandowski would add plenty of goals and creativity to Klopp’s attack in the short term. Plus, he could go on to form a lethal attacking partnership with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah at Anfield over the next few seasons.

Realistically, the Reds would struggle to finance a move for the Bayern Munich star but he will be a dream option for them nonetheless, especially if the Bundesliga champions decide to lower their demands for their prized asset in the coming days.
