Borussia Dortmund have slapped a €35 million [£28m] price-tag on Premier League target Robert Lewandowski amid interest from Juventus, can reveal.

 The striker has developed into a key player for the Bundesliga club since joining from Lech Poznan in the summer of 2010, and his performances have not gone unnoticed in Italy.

The Serie A side sent scouts to BVB's 2-2 Champions League draw against Real Madrid on Tuesday and Lewandowski did enough to convince representatives of his qualities.

Nevertheless, the 24-year-old will not be available on the cheap if Juventus decide to step up their interest in the player.

With the Poland international's contract at Signal Iduna Park running until June 2014, it seems it will take a big-money bid to prise the striker away.

The striker's agent exclusively told back in May that the 24-year-old has also been the subject of interest from several English clubs, thought to include Manchester City, Manchester United & Chelsea.

The Red Devils had been thought to be particularly keen on securing the forward's services prior to their move for Robin van Persie.
