Liverpool will reportedly wage a transfer battle with Barcelona and Real Madrid for Robert Lewandowski after offering him a €20m-a-year deal.
According to a report by the Spanish outlet, Robert Lewandowski is the subject of interest from Liverpool for a possible €70m move in the summer transfer window. The Reds have offered a contract of 20 million euros a year to the Polish forward, target of Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Robert Lewandowski has been the most dominant striker in Europe since moving to Germany to join Borussia Dortmund more than a decade ago. And he has been transformed into a goalscoring machine following his move to Bayern Munich in July 2014, establishing himself as arguably the best striker of his generation.
The 33-year-old has been breaking fun records of late and has an impressive tally of 45 goals and four assists in 37 appearances in all competitions this term. But the Bundesliga champions are worried about Lewandowski’s long-term future, as he has just over a year left on his contract. Such a situation has caught the attention of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Liverpool.
Barcelona’s interest stems from the growing uncertainties surrounding Martin Braithwaite’s future. The Dane is likely to leave the Camp Nou in the summer. In addition, Luuk de Jong will definitely return to Sevilla once his loan expires. That will leave Xavi Hernández with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the only striker at his disposal, which explains the interest in the Pole.

Meanwhile, the links with Real Madrid are surprising, considering that Karim Benzema is in the best moment of his life. With Lewandowski almost as old as Real Madrid’s talisman, it’s hard to see how the 33-year-old will fit into the scheme of things at the Santiago Bernabéu. And now, Real Madrid and Barcelona will have to dodge Liverpool’s interest.
According to transfers, the Reds have offered Bayern Munich around 70 million euros for Lewandowski and present a contract worth 20 million euros per year for the player. While Liverpool’s attack has had excellent touch this season, the addition of a natural striker in Lewandowski could add another dimension to their attacking unit.

As it is, Lewandowski is at odds with Bayern Munich over the terms of a new contract. And if their clash continues, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Liverpool could all imagine their chances of snapping up the Pole, with the Reds making the first move by offering a €20m-a-year deal.
