New Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp wants to team up again with Polish goal machine Robert Lewandowski.

Lewandowski’s agent has hinted that the striker’s future will not be with Bayern Munich - and Klopp is ready to make a play to tempt the 27-year-old to Anfield.

Liverpool have £32million Christian Benteke, Daniel Sturridge, Danny Ings and Divock Origi, while Mario Balotelli is on loan at AC Milan.

But Klopp will not hesitate to sanction a move for Lewandowski if he gets any indication that Bayern will sell.

The new Kop boss signed Lewandowski for Borussia Dortmund from Lech Poznan in 2010 after a move to Blackburn fell through after the player’s flight to England was cancelled following a volcanic eruption in Iceland.

He became a Dortmund hero - but then soured his reputation with the club’s fans when he allowed his contract to expire and joined bitter rivals Bayern in 2014.

Klopp identified Lewandowski as the player who has given him most satisfaction as a coach.

He said: “The biggest satisfaction you can get is when you take a player from Poland, from a small club and watch him play like he does today.

“The difference between that player we signed and the player he is today is unbelievable.”

Lewandowski has been in sensational form this season, scoring five goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg for Bayern and then ending Scotland’s hopes of qualifying for Euro 2016 with a double at Hampden Park as Poland forced a 2-2 draw.

But suggestions persist that Bayern boss Pep Guardiola remains unconvinced.

A move to Real Madrid or Barcelona has been suggested in recent weeks, but neither club are in the market for a striker and Klopp’s arrival at Anfield could be the key.
