A new piece of information has emerged regarding speculation over the future of Robert Lewandowski . The Bayern Munich bomber is reported to have the potential to move to England to join Chelsea .
Almost a decade, Lewandowski is a crucial figure at Bayern Munich. He became the mainstay of Die Roten’s goal machine and he succeeded in bringing many trophies for The Bavarian champions.
It was recently reported that Lewandowski wanted to leave Bayern. He is said to want to find new challenges in his career.
The Transfer Window Podcast claims that Lewandowski is likely to leave for the UK. He is a potential transfer target for Chelsea.
Need a Striker
According to the report, Chelsea are currently in need of a new striker. This is because the stock of Chelsea strikers is running low.
Last summer, Chelsea lost three strikers. They parted ways with Michy Batshuayi, Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham.
Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku, who they brought in, performed poorly. So Chelsea think it is better to bring in a proven striker.
According to the report, Chelsea are very interested in Robert Lewandowski. They are ready to take advantage of the striker’s situation to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
They assess the productivity of Lewandowski’s goals is extraordinary. Even though he is already in his thirties, his performance is still above average.
That’s why Chelsea were captivated by the action of the Polish striker. So they want to recruit him.
Chelsea knows Bayern Munich are reluctant to part with Lewandowski. So they had prepared a plan to secure his services.
They plan to barter players. They will replace Timo Werner with Lewandowski.
