It's no surprise that Lewandowski has been rumoured to interest many top sides in Europe, including Manchester United, given the form he has been in - the 24-year-old has continued his goalscoring heroics this season and added two goals to his tally with a brace over the weekend as Dortmund beat Greuther Furth 3-1.

When asked about his style, the Poland international cited Thierry Henry as someone who had an impact on him.

"I didn't have one particular idol, but there was a player I tried to follow. It was Henry in his time at Arsenal," Lewandowski told Uefa.com.

"I liked the way he played and moved on the pitch. I think he was a great player."

The Poland international also had his say on BVB coach Jurgen Klopp, and praised the 45-year-old's passionate approach.

"You can see on television how happy he is when we score, and how mad he gets after a failed move - but not with us, but rather with the ball not going into the goal.

"I think he lives and breathes not only the matches, but also the training."
