Borussia Dortmund star says playing in England would be ‘a great experience’.
Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has refused to rule out a move to the Premier League.
The contract of the Poland international expires in June and Lewandowski is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with a new club in January.
It was widely expected that the goal-machine would join Dortmund’s Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich but Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal have all been linked with the 25-year-old, who has scored 66 goals in the previous two seasons.
“I will be able to sign a contract in January, but I have never said that I will sign a contract with Bayern,” Lewandowski said.
“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.
“One day I would like to play in the Premier League. It would be a great experience.”
“There was a proposal from Blackburn.
“I even spoke with the former manager. In the end, I decided that Dortmund gave me a better chance of development as a footballer.
Lewandowski’s Poland are due to face England in a crucial World Cup qualifier at Wembley on Tuesday night and the forward has warned Three Lions fans that the visitors will be out to spoil the party.
“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.
“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.”
