Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski could be heading to the Premier League next summer, at least according to his agent. And given the 27-year-old star used to play for new Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp, it's hardly a shock to learn that Liverpool are the rumoured favoured destination.

According to SportBild, Lewandowski's availability quickly caught the attention of Klopp, and the manager has already discussed the possibility of signing him with the club's transfer committee. As the rumour goes, all are in agreement the Polish striker should be a top priority and money has already been put aside for his purchase.

"It would be wrong to say there is no interest," Lewandowski's agent, Maik Barthel, said when asked by the German tabloid for comment on the potential for his client to end up transferring to Liverpool before the start of next season. "I think it would have to be a very high offer, though. Definitely higher than £35M."

Lewandowski signed with Bayern on a free in 2014, moving on after spending four years playing for Klopp at Dortmund. Since making the move, he has scored 44 goals in 67 appearances across all competitions for the German giants. Lewandowski has scored 147 goals in 254 appearances since first arriving in Germany in 2010.

His contract at Bayern currently runs through 2019. Despite early speculation the big striker would not suit manager Pep Guardiola, by all accounts the Bayern boss has grown to value Lewandowski and there is no suggestion the club are at all interested in seeing him move on.
