European champions, Chelsea have spoken to Robert Lewandowski’s agent about a possible transfer, according to reports.
The Blues are believed to be interested in signing the Bayern Munich striker if they fail to complete a deal for Erling Haaland.
Chelsea are reportedly interested in Robert Lewandowski
According to Sport Bild via journalist Ronan Murphy, Chelsea have been discussing Lewandowski’s future with agent Pini Zahavi.
SunSport have exclusively revealed the Blues are considering making a £50million bid for the 32-year-old after struggling to sign Haaland.
The Borussia Dortmund forward, 20, is believed to be the Premier League side’s No1 strike target but a deal is yet to be agreed.
Chelsea will reportedly tempt Dortmund by making a £135MILLION bid for Haaland, despite his alleged £65m release clause coming into play in 2022.
Reports suggest Bayern do NOT want to sell Lewandowski and are negotiating a contract extension.
The Poland international has two years remaining on his existing deal and has been at the Allianz Arena since 2014.
Lewandowski has arguably become European football’s deadliest striker during that time, scoring 41 goals in just 29 Bundesliga games last term.
It’s understood Chelsea are keen to sign a new striker this summer after Timo Werner managed just six Premier League goals last term.
Fellow forward Tammy Abraham is not thought to be in manager Thomas Tuchel’s plans either, with three Prem clubs interested in his signature.
And experienced hitman Olivier Giroud has already left Stamford Bridge, completing a £2m move to Serie A side AC Milan.
Haaland and Lewandowski are thought to be Chelsea’s main targets but Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic is also reportedly being considered.
Chelsea are understood to be after several players, including their former youth prospect Declan Rice – rated at £100m.
They’ve also been linked with 18-year-old Eduardo Camavinga, with Rennes president Nicolas Holveck not ruling out the possibility of a transfer.
And the Blues are reportedly interested in signing ex-Fulham star Marcus Bettinelli as their third-choice goalkeeper.
