Cape Town - Former Liverpool midfielder, Dietmar Hamann, says a trio of English Premiership clubs should try sign Bayern Munich Robert Lewandowski.

Hamann told Sky Sports: "He came to Bayern Munich on a free last year but if there was an opportunity to get him out I’d break the bank for him because I think he’s the best No 9 in the world.”

The former Liverpool player said that Lewandowski was perfectly suited to the styles of three English clubs and not necessarily to the style of the Bundesliga champions.

Hamann believes Bayern are best served by a "poacher" and not a more complete all-round striker like Lewandowski.

“If you look at Manchester United, I think they could do with a Lewandowski,” said Hamann.

“At the moment United, Liverpool and even Arsenal... Lewandowski is tailor-made for them."

Lewandowski played on the wing during Bayern's last Bundesliga feature and failed to start against Shakhtar during the club's Champions League fixture on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old Polish striker only made his way onto the pitch against Shakhtar in the 75th minute.

Hamann then speculated that either Lewandowski or even his coach, Pep Guardiola, could be heading out of the Allianz Arena.

“It’s a big question mark. There’s a question mark about the manager. There are still no assurances that he will be there, even though he’s got a contract.

“I think the same goes for Lewandowski because the way the team plays under Guardiola I don’t think it suits him."
