Mega-Deal: Liverpool give Klopp money to sign 'world-class' £50m goal-machine. Agent confirms transfer away is possible

Liverpool are once again being linked with an improbable move for 'world-class' Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski, and according to new reports this week, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is confident that he can convince the Polish superstar to sign for LFC.

Last month, The Independent claimed:

"New Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is seeking a reunion with Bayern Munich's Polish striker Robert Lewandowski".

On Wednesday, German newspaper BILD reported:

* Lewandowski is one of Liverpool's top transfer targets.

* Klopp has a 'plan of action', and the money, to bring the £50m-rated striker to Anfield.

If Klopp has the 'money' to sign Lewandowski, then it means FSG have sanctioned the deal. Whether this is actually true, however, remains to be seen.

Lewandowski appears to be available, though. When asked this week about the striker's future, his agent, Maik Barthel hinted that a transfer could be done...for the right price:

“It would be wrong to say there is no interest. I think it would have to be a very high offer, definitely higher than £35m.”

In a recent interview, Arsenal legend Ray Parlour compared Lewandowski to ex-Red Luis Suarez

"We know about Lewandowski, how well he's playing, and I'm sure Klopp would love to get him to Liverpool. What a signing that would be, it would be like Suarez turning up at Liverpool."

With 23 goals/assists in 19 games already this season, Lewandowski is in the form of his life at the moment, and he's the main man for one of the best teams, and most well-run football teams in the world.

As such, why would he want to leave? Granted, Lewandowksi still has a strong bond with Klopp, and the German clearly rates 'unbelievable' Lewandowski very highly. Indeed, over the weekend, Klopp enthused:

"The biggest satisfaction you can get is when you take a player from Poland [Lewandowski], from a small club and watch him play like he does today".

Is this bond enough to tempt Lewandowski to quite a club that challenges for the biggest trophies every single year?

If, but some miracle, Liverpool sign Lewandowski, he will almost certainly be first-choice in a 4231, which will be bad news for Sturridge and Benteke, both of whom regularly suffer with injuries.

Lewandowski is like Suarez: tough, robust, and very rarely injured, which would give him an immediate advantage over Liverpool's two main strikers.

Sadly, though, it's probably not going to happen any time soon.
