The agent of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has confirmed English interest in his client but claims it will take a lot more than £13m to sign him, according to Sky Sports News.

The Polish hitman has been strongly linked with a move this summer after a superb season in the Bundesliga last year, where he scored 22 goals in 34 games to lead Dortmund to a league and cup double.

Sky Sports claim that both Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in the 23-year-old with the player recently admitting he’d jump at the chance to play in the Premier League.

Reports over the weekend claimed that Chelsea had seen a £13m offer for the striker knocked back by Dortmund, with the Germans determined to hang on to their star man and it’s believed the club have opened talks with the players representatives over a new contract, which still has two years to run.

Lewandowski’s agent, Maik Barthel, has now confirmed there is interest from ‘top English clubs’ but claims it will take more than £13m to land the talented Pole.

“Unofficially there are offers from top English clubs,”

“We respect the contract situation in Dortmund and don’t want to take part in speculation.

“A £13million transfer fee is not suitable.”

Barthel is quoted as saying by Sky Sports

Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo is on the look out for a new front man to replace Dider Drogba, while Sir Alex Ferguson is also believed to be keen on adding to his strike force, with Dimitar Berbatov expected to leave Old Trafford this summer, but it seems the duo will have to dig deep if they are to sign Lewandowski.

    Lowerdoski is nice but in my mind d only striker who can replace drogba is Falcao but he wil be 2 costly, but instead of payin 30 or £35m 2 Cavani or Hulk let dem pay it 4 Falcao, i prefer Falcao 2 every other striker nd he has shown his quality in 2 different leagues (FC Porto nd Atlentico Madrid)

    Hulk is the right man, reason 1) No conflicts to be the main striker as it happened between Drogba Torres and Sturridge. 2) Hulk would happily take the right wing / fwd position with plenty of promise of goals and assist. 3) Showing more confident to Torres will be the key to his best form to reap

    Shurlle is a better option though lewandoski is not bad either,falcao is getting old moreso i don’t think he is ready for a bigger challenge.cavanni is d best because of his age and his form presently.

    Hulk is the best option for chelsea and not any other striker cos he can play from the wing and free Torres

    chelsea should sign facoal? I don’t think that is a good idear. Becaus the age he is present now can not give a long effort to the club,,,,, i prefer hulk but am so disapoint with halk ,, the way he talk and the way dinied a link. Chelsea should sign oscar and any striker that can play when torres is absent,
    because torres cannot play all the game,,
