Chelsea FC transfer news: Premier League champions make move for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski
Robert Lewandowski is on Chelsea’s radar
They had been keen on a deal for Romelu Lukaku but Blues chiefs are understood to be reluctant to meet Everton’s £100m asking price.
Now they have turned their attention to Lewandowski, who is unhappy at Bayern.
The Polish hitman recently accused teammates of not doing enough to help him finish the season as Bundesliga’s leading goalscorer.
Lewandowski netted 30 Bundesliga goals last season as Bayern clinched the title but missed out on the golden boot to Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Now Chelsea look set to offer the 28-year-old a way out of the Allianz Arena – although Roman Abramovich will have to spend big to convince Bayern to sell.
Lewandowski is arguably the best number nine in world football.
He has netted 110 goals in 147 appearances for Bayern since joining on a free transfer in 2014, having previously enjoyed a similarly prolific spell at Dortmund.
