Ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek has called on his fellow countryman Robert Lewandowski to sign for his former club.
The Poland international is said to be determined to leave Bayern Munich this summer, but Barcelona are the frontrunners for the player’s signature, while Chelsea are also reportedly interested in the striker. Dudek has, though, encouraged Lewandowski to reunite with his former Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp at Anfield:
“He has been the best striker in Europe for many years and the last 10 seasons at Bayern have been incredible, with eight championships and I think six times top scorer in the Bundesliga. He is an incredible player and I am surprised that Barcelona are interested in him. I think the best thing for him would be to go to the Premier League, because he is strong, fast and, in my opinion, where he would fit best is in Klopp’s Liverpool. I know that Firmino is there, but he is not always one hundred percent and I think that for Lewandowski it would be the best scenario.”
Lewandowski would certainly be a fantastic replacement for Roberto Firmino, if the Brazilian were to be let go in the coming months, but it’s hard to see the Bayern forward moving to Merseyside.
It appears as though Lewandowski has his heart set on a move to Barca and, while Klopp could play a role in persuading the striker into signing for the Reds, the club don’t generally sign players nearing the end of their careers.
Lewandowski will turn 34 in August, and while he is a truly outstanding goalscorer, Liverpool simply don’t make that type of signing.
