Klopp the Next Lewandowski? Liverpool and Everton ‘battling’ for £10m Striker

The transfer rumours continue to come thick and fast, with the latest being both Merseyside clubs fighting for Anderlecht striker Lukasz Teodorczyk.

With Dominic Solanke’s signing last week raising questions of both formation and current players’ future roles at the club, the mystery over Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and his intentions for next season’s attack will only deepen with the latest link.

Anderlecht’s 26-year-old striker Teodorczyk has already been linked with a Premier League move previously, but the reported £10 million asking price has yet to be met, according to the Mirror.

The Reds and Everton are battling with Sevilla, who are reported to have given a June 12 deadline to come to an agreement with the Belgian club.

Liverpool have followed Teodorczyk for a full year, according to the report, though it should be noted that if that were the case—as it clearly was with Solanke, given when the initial rumours emerged—there would be no real reason for delay now.

A £10 million fee would barely dent in the reported war chest the Reds have to spend this summer, so there should be no question of not being able to meet the financial requirements, again perhaps pointing toward a less-than-solid foundation for the rumour at this time.

Teodorczyk scored 20 goals in 26 games regular season, and another two in the late-season split for European spots. In Continental action he netted seven times in the Europa League, and managed 30 in 53 in all competitions for his club.
