Liverpool have to beat Chelsea in race for 29-year-old Europe’s deadliest No.9

Chelsea would reportedly be the frontrunners ahead of Liverpool for the signature of Robert Lewandowski, should the striker decide to leave Bayern Munich in the summer.

The Poland skipper, who has played in the Bundesliga since 2010 with Borussia Dortmund and the current German champions, is allegedly keen on adding the Premier League trophy to his personal cabinet.

The Sun adds that Chelsea would be joined by Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool in vying for his signature if the 29-year-old decided on a move to England.

The newspaper says that Lewandowski would be attracted to the history of United, while also pulled in by the prospect of working with either Pep Guardiola or Jurgen Klopp again.

The striker, who has scored 20 times in as many Bundesliga starts for Bayern this term, is contracted with the club until 2021.
