Jurgen Klopp wants to bring Robert Lewandowski to Liverpool next summer and has the money to make the deal happen.
This is according to The Sun, who claim reports in Germany suggest Klopp is keen to reunite with the Poland international at Anfield.
It would be a stunning coup for Liverpool if they manage to convince Bayern Munich to sell their first-choice striker. Lewandowski, who has scored 19 goals in 18 appearances for the German champions this season, is widely regarded as the best No. 9 in world football on current form.

However, it seems incomprehensible that Bayern Munich would agree to offload the 27-year-old, who is at the peak of his powers, regardless of the sums of money involved.
Furthermore, why would Lewandowski want to leave the Allianz Arena? He’s scoring goals for fun and competing for the biggest trophies under Pep Guardiola, arguably the best coach in the world. Leaving all that behind to join Liverpool would be a baffling decision, despite the presence of his old boss Klopp.

Liverpool must secure Champions League football
Liverpool stand no realistic chance of attracting the biggest names, such as Lewandowski, unless they qualify for the Champions League.
The Reds currently find themselves 10th in the Premier League table, following Sunday’s surprise 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace, seven points off fourth-placed Manchester United. There are no guarantees they’ll finish the campaign inside the top six, let alone the top four.
Klopp is wasting his time with Lewandowski
Lewandowski stands a far better chance of adding to his silverware collection by staying put in Munich.
There are perhaps only two other clubs who could tempt Lewandowski away from the Allianz Arena, and they’re both located in Spain.
Klopp may have a strong bond with Lewandowski, but he should forget about the idea of bringing the striker to Anfield in 2016. It’ll be a complete waste of time if he doesn’t.
