Liverpool legend Steve Nicol wants to see his old club shopping in the Bundesliga.

Nicol feels Liverpool can mark their ambition by signing a Germany-based striker.

"I'd be happy if Liverpool were being linked with Lewandowski," he told talkSPORT. "He's got just over a year left on his contract and Borussia Dortmund would let him go.

"Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is another one [they should target]. He's a proven goalscorer. They need to get a couple of guys who they know can get the ball in the back of the net. That will take the pressure off everybody."
