Borussia Dortmund youngster Erling Haaland can become the best striker in the world, according to Robert Lewandowski.

Haaland has been impressive for Dortmund this season, and the 20-year-old has already emerged as one of Europe's hottest prospects.

The Norwegian has already scored 33 goals from as much games across all competitions for the Bundesliga side so far this season, and has already attracted transfer interest from a number of top European clubs.

Lewandowski, who has been superb for Bayern Munich, believes Haaland can become the best striker in the world in the future. "He's a great player," Lewandowski told CBS Sports [via Marca]. "He has great potential, but he's still very young. In the future, he has the chance to become the best forward in the world, for sure."

The Poland striker also said it's great to have Haaland in the Bundesliga to compare himself to. "It's great to have him in the Bundesliga, to have a young player here to compare [myself] to," he said. "I see his face; he has the desire to score goals.

"He is the player who can be the best, but I want to play to the fullest for many more years. I'm happy where I am.

"It's not always easy when things are going well. But he has scored a lot of goals already and he's very young."
