Chelsea is set to line-up a bid in the summer to sign arguably the best centre-forward in football in Robert Lewandowski.
That’s according to The Sun, who report that the Bayern Munich forward is looking for a new challenge and wants a move to the Premier League.
Lewandowski has scored goals for fun in Germany and over the years has proven to be up there among the best strikers in the world.
The 171 Bundesliga goals in a combined spell with Bayern as well as Borussia Dortmund earlier in his career indicate that the Pole is ready to test himself in England, as The Sun reports.
The only negative is that being 30-years-old, signing Lewandowski would still come at a hefty price. The tabloid newspaper believes the player will have to force a move with his contract at the German club expiring in 2021.
Chelsea may also be reluctant to pay big money for a striker in the summer having both Alvaro Morata and Oliver Giroud in the current squad.
However, it may well be worth the risk if it meant luring this goalscoring machine to Stamford Bridge.
