Robert Lewandowski shows off skills in Bayern Munich training session

Ask 10 football fans who the world's best striker is at the moment and there's a good chance nine of them would name Bayern Munich's in-form number nine Robert Lewandowski.

We all know the Poland international is devastating inside the penalty area, but now we've also discovered that he gives teammate Thiago Alcantara a serious run for his money in the skills stakes.

Bayern Munich have released a one-minute video of Lewandowski in training and it's impressive - especially when you consider he's a 6ft centre-forward and not your typical technically-gifted playmaker. (Scroll down this page to see Lewandowski in action).

Lewandowski has scored 19 goals in as many matches this season - five of them came in nine minutes against Wolfsburg in September - and is currently in the form of his life.

There appears to be no obvious reason why the 27-year-old would want to leave Bayern - who are top of the Bundesliga, contenders to win the Champions League and coached by the revered Pep Guardiola - but that has not prevented stories linking him with a move away from the Allianz Arena in recent weeks.

Lewandowski likely to stay with Bayern Munich

Real Madrid are reportedly keen on the Pole, as is Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who coached Lewandowski at Borussia Dortmund.

A move to the Bernabeu would tempt any ambitious player, but it's hard to imagine Lewandowski being tempted by the chance to join Klopp's revolution at Anfield.
