Why this 32 goal hitman is a sensible target for Chelsea

A report from Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo suggests that Polish international Robert Lewandowski has already held preliminary talks with Premier League champions Chelsea ahead of a potential summer move.

Having enjoyed so much success with the Bavarian giants since he joined from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2014, it is believed the Polish striker might be open to a new challenge next season and could finally leave the Allianz Arena at the end of the season.

However, it is also believed the hitman could be the subject of a two-way transfer tussle between both Chelsea and Real Madrid with the La Liga giants keen on bringing in the Bayern Munich striker this summer.

The 29-year-old is not expected to come cheap as Bayern are reportedly seeking a fee of €100 million or more and with the future of Antonio Conte under threat at the end of the season, the Blues hierarchy are expected to back their new manager with unlimited funds in the transfer market this summer if they are to compete with the likes of Manchester City next season.

 

Perfect sense

Chelsea’s pursuit of Robert Lewandowski makes perfect sense given his reputation as one of the most feared and clinical strikers in the world and would definitely represent an upgrade on misfiring and struggling Spanish forward Alvaro Morata, who has only scored once for the Blues since Boxing Day.

The Poland forward is known for his finishing, excellent heading abilities, link-up play, height, long shots, strength, balance, pace, intelligence with the ball and his excellent use of both feet.

He has featured in 38 games for the Bundesliga giants across all competitions this season scoring 32 times and providing two assists and could be key for the west London club looking to wrestle back the title from champions elect Manchester City next season should he move to Stamford Bridge.
