Chelsea transfer: Tuchel reportedly eyes 'phenomenal' centre-forward
Chelsea are lining up an astonishing move to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, according to The Sun. It is claimed that the Blues are preparing a £50 million bid for the 32-year-old.
Lewandowski is currently enjoying an extended break after his Euro 2020 involvement. His future at Bayern could be up in the air though, with Chelsea ready to pounce.
Last season was a memorable one for the talisman. He scored 48 goals from just 40 appearances and reaffirmed himself as the best centre-forward in world football.
Now, Chelsea are prepared to swoop. Thomas Tuchel is keen to bolster his ranks with a new striker during the transfer window.
Tammy Abraham could leave, whilst Olivier Giroud has now joined AC Milan. That doesn’t leave the Blues with an abundance of options and the boss will need to act.
Lewandowski’s goalscoring record in Germany has been sensational. In 350 Bundesliga outings, he’s found the net 277 times and registered 71 assists.
Prising him away from Bayern won’t come easily. He does, however, have just two years to run on his existing deal.
German legend Jurgen Klinsmann previously labelled the striker as ‘phenomenal’ during an interview with the Bundesliga website.
Lewandowski to Chelsea could be game-changing signing Blues need
In winning last season’s Champions League final, Chelsea showcased that they are capable of winning the bit titles still.
In order to get their hands on the Premier League crown, however, they’ll need better players to help them develop a consistent streak.
Lewandowski could be the man to do just that and his arrival at Stamford Bridge would be met with huge excitement.
One stumbling block could be the player’s wage demands. He earns a staggering £352,000-a-week at the Allianz Arena and that would give Chelsea a minor headache.
If a deal could be struck, however, it would represent a real coup for the Blues.
