Lewandowski Opens Door To The EPL

Robert Lewandowski has the left door open to a move to the English Premier League.

The prolific Borussia Dortmund striker pushed for a transfer to Bayern Munich at the end of last season, and is widely expected to join the German champions when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign.

But Lewandowski has recently backtracked on his assertion that his move to the Allianz Arena is a certainty.

 And ahead of his outing for Poland against England at Wembley this week, he admits there is appeal to playing in the EPL.

Courted by both Manchester clubs in the past, Lewandowski’s goal return of 66 strikes in the past two seasons for Dortmund, plus nine in nine so far this season, makes the striker one of Europe’s hottest commodities.

And Bayern, or perhaps a team from England, will be lucky enough to get such a top-class marksmen for free in just under a year’s time.

"I will be able to sign a contract in January, but I have never said that I will sign a contract with Bayern,” Lewa told the Daily Telegraph.

"It was a misunderstanding.”

“It is true I had the opportunity to speak with Sir Alex Ferguson (last year), but we didn't mention the transfer,” he added.

"One day I would like to play in the Premier League. It would be a great experience."

Lewandowski is set to lead Poland’s line against players he could get to know much better if he ever does move to England in the future.

And although Poland cannot qualify for the World Cup, they will do their utmost to make England’s bid for an automatic ticket to Brazil as difficult as possible.

"We know all about this England team and the whole team is very dangerous. As always, we have to watch out for Wayne Rooney. It's not only the task for defenders, but for the whole team, and it will be a very hard match,” he said.

"We won't be favourites and we don't stand a chance of going through, but we want to go to Wembley and allow our supporters a little fun.

"I don't know why we have good players at top clubs but we don't have a team who can play ruthless football and kill teams off. In qualification, victories and points are the most important things, not the style of play."
