Read Transfer News: Chelsea Considering Lewandowski After Failing To Secure Haaland
According to the Sun on Sunday, Chelsea is considering a £50 million move for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski as a replacement for top target Erling Haaland. Haaland is in high demand at Stamford Bridge, where the Blues are looking to add a new striker to help with their goal-scoring difficulties.
Jorginho, a central midfielder, was their best scorer in the Premier League last season, with seven goals, while big money 2020 signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz combined for just ten league goals.
Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, has reportedly set a €180 million asking price for Haaland, which might rule out a bid for the Norwegian by the Champions League winners. As a result, Chelsea is thought to be exploring alternative targets, with Lewandowski being one of them.
Last season, the 32-year-old scored at least 13 more goals (41) than any other player in the Bundesliga, breaking the record for the most goals scored in a Bundesliga season. Lewandowski’s current contract with Bayern Munich expires in 2023, and the German club is keen to extend it, but Chelsea is willing to spend big on the Poland international as they want a big name striker to lead the line in 2021/22.
