Chelsea are in contact with Robert Lewandowski’s agents, according to Sky Deutschland. The player has scored 40 goals in the league this season and could overtake the legendary Gerd Muller’s record of scoring 40 Bundesliga goals in one season, with one game to go.
The Blues are in need of a recognised goalscorer, and with Jorginho as their leading goalscorer with 7 goals, it really goes to show how misfiring their frontline has been. The Italian has scored all of his goals from penalties, and Chelsea need that extra firepower to compete for the Premier League title.
Harry Kane is on the market, with the England captain desiring to leave Spurs. However, it is very unlikely that Daniel Levy will do business with Chelsea due to their rivalry with the club.
Hence, the Blues have turned their attention to the Polish sensation on the request of manager Thomas Tuchel. The 32-year-old has two years left on his current deal with Bayern Munich, and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Olivier Giroud is set to leave the club at the end of the season, and Tammy Abraham’s Chelsea career has been frozen still. With both strikers out, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz have been deployed as centre-forwards but neither has been able to deliver as frequently as required.
Lewandowski turns 33 in June, and the experienced striker could be the perfect option for the Blues to not only have a great striker, but also someone who can help groom Werner and Havertz.
