Liverpool transfers: Robert Lewandowski’s agent acknowledges Premier League interest
Maik Barthel admits there is interest from the Premier League in Liverpool target Robert Lewandowski
Robert Lewandowski is attracting interest from the Premier League amid reports of a potential move to Liverpool, according to Poland star’s agent.
The Bayern Munich striker has been linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena despite scoring a sensational 14 goals in 11 Bundesliga games this term.
Unsurprisingly, Jurgen Klopp’s appointment at Liverpool has prompted speculation the Liverpool manager could attempt to sign his former Borussia Dortmund striker.
And the Reds were handed a boost after Lewandowski’s agent Maik Barthel refused to rubbish the rumours, admitting that there is interest from the Premier League ahead of the January transfer window.
“It would be wrong to say there is no interest from the Premier League,” Barthel told Tuttomercatoweb.
“But all of us should respect that Robert has a contract at FC Bayern.”
The 27-year-old Poland striker has scored 18 times in 15 Bundesliga and Champions League games for Pep Guardiola’s side this season.
Lewandowski netted 103 times in 187 games under Klopp at Dortmund before the striker completed his controversial move to Bayern in 2014.
