New Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is seeking a reunion with Bayern Munich's Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, according to reports.

Klopp had previously said that Lewandowski, a player he signed to Borussia Dortmund from Lech Poznan in 2010, had given him the "biggest satisfaction" as a coach.

Lewandowski's agent hinted last month that his client could soon make a move away from Bayern in the near future. He has scored a staggering amount of goals for club and country already this season, 21 in just 13 appearances - including five goals in nine minutes against Wolfsburg.

"Games like the one against Wolfsburg immensely help a player increase his value," his agent Cezary Kucharsk had said.

Under Klopp at Dortmund, Lewandowski soon become a hero for the club, scoring over 100 goals, and winning two Bundesliga titles.

The 27-year-old striker, who would have signed for Blackburn Rovers in 2010 were not for the Eyjafjallajokull volcano eruption, has a contract in place with Bayern until June 2019.

“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," Klopp had said of Lewandowski.

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