Lewandowski great replacement for Morata, but Chelsea have convincing to do

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is considering a move to Chelsea this summer, according to The Express.

What’s the story?

It is not the first time the Poland international has been linked to Stamford Bridge, and it is unlikely to be the last.

The 29-year-old has been a consistent goal threat for the German giants since his controversial switch from Borussia Dortmund in 2014.

This season in the Champions League, though, the forward was below par as Bayern were knocked out of the competition by Real Madrid in the semi-finals.

Now, it seems that he is considering his future, with The Express reporting that after speaking to his agent Pini Zahavi, a move to Chelsea is under consideration.

How likely is this transfer?

If Lewandowski is looking for a test in the Premier League, then Chelsea is a good destination.

The Poland forward would slot straight into the team, likely replacing Alvaro Morata, who has scored just three times in his last 22 appearances in all competitions for the Blues.

However, it would be difficult to convince a player of Lewandowski’s calibre to join a club that will not be competing in the Champions League next season.

On top of that, the future of current manager Antonio Conte remains uncertain, which could also make the Bayern forward feel uneasy about committing to the Blues.
