Chelsea have reportedly made a move to sign striker Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Premier League champions have made a “serious enquiry” for the 28-year-old, who is apparently unsettled at Bayern.
Antonio Conte is in the market for a new striker after dumping current star forward Diego Costa by text.
Lewandowski, 28, would be a perfect replacement for the fiery Spaniard.
The former Borussia Dortmund hitman is a handful for defenders physically, while also bringing flair and, most importantly, goals to the table.
Lewandowski, who scored 43 goals for Bayern in all competitions last season, would be an alternative to top targets Romelu Lukaku and Alvaro Morata.
Chelsea are reluctant to meet Everton’s £100million evaluation for Lukaku, and face competition from Manchester United for Real ace Morata.
Robert Lewandowski, 28, is unsettled and criticised his team-mates earlier this month, accusing them of not doing enough to make him Germany’s top scorer.
Lewandowski’s agent, Maik Barthel, has followed up and said: “Robert told me that he got no support and that the coach [ex-Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti] gave no call to help him in the last game to win the top-scorer title.
