According to in the Sun., Chelsea will turn their attention to Robert Lewandowski after failing to land Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland. Chelsea are believed to be preparing a £ 50 million offer for the 32-year-old.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel and club boss Roman Abramovich had given priority to Erling Haaland’s signing this summer. Borussia Dortmund, however, are not looking to part with the Norwegian hitman after selling Jadon Sancho to Manchester United earlier this month.
Haaland has also three years in his current deal with Borussia Dortmund. As a result, it will be difficult to reward him away from the German side this summer.
Chelsea have also been linked with a move by Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku and Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane. The Blues have however identified Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski as an alternative to Erling Haaland.
Robert Lewandowski enjoyed a record Bundesliga campaign 2020-21. He broke Gerd Muller’s goal record for just one campaign in the German top flight. The Bayern Munich star has scored 41 incredible goals in just 29 league appearances.
Lewandowski has scored 294 goals in 323 games for Bayern Munich since he went to the club for a free transfer in 2014. The striker has helped the Bundesliga giants win seven consecutive Bundesliga titles, three DFP Pokal trophies and one Champions League during his time with the club,
Robert Lewandowski has often been linked with a move away from Bayern Munich in recent years. Real Madrid have had a long-standing interest in the Polish superstar, but it is Chelsea who are ready to make an offer for the striker this summer.
Thomas Tuchel is desperate to sign a striker who will score 20 goals a season for the club. The German lacked faith in those of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Tammy Abraham.
Chelsea could prefer a move for Romelu Lukaku over Roberto Lewandowski
At 32, Roberto Lewandowski is approaching the final stages of his career. Thomas Tuchel will want to sign a long-term solution to Chelsea’s attacking problems. In addition, Bayern Munich are unlikely to entertain the thought of parting ways with their precious heritage this summer.
Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku is currently one of the deadliest strikers in Europe. The Belgian led Inter Milan to their first Scudetto in eleven years. Inter Milan are open to the idea of selling Lukaku because of the club’s financial situation.
