Chelsea are currently thinking of making a double swoop for two of Bayern Munich’s players this summer in the transfer window.
The Blues have been linked with many forwards this summer starting with Neymar, Raphinha to rival striker Cristiano Ronaldo. Meanwhile, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel had been alerted over Neymar’s possible departure from PSG in the transfer window.
Bayern’s Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski are the latest additions in the club’s interest upfront in the attack.
Could a move to Chelsea be possible?
Chelsea are in need of a good attacking line with decent backup, something that the club missed in the last season.
Disastrous performances from Romelu Lukaku, Kai Havertz, and Werner forced the manager to look for prospects in the transfer market. Even more so, the Blues finally got hold of Raheem Sterling from Manchester City in the transfer window.
However, Chelsea do not seem fully confident even after the arrival of Sterling and the reason seems obvious. Banking on the former City ace for goals the entire season may not seem like a wise idea for the club.
New owner Todd Boehly and manager Tuchel have kept tabs on the situation revolving around the Bayern forwards. However, a move for Robert Lewandowski to the Bridge appears to be very difficult to pull off this summer.
The striker has reached a verbal agreement with Catalan giants FC Barcelona and only wants to join them next season. Moreover, Lewandowski even rejected approaches from PSG and Chelsea earlier to just so he could move to the Spanish League.
However, assuming that Barcelona are unable to generate the required bid for the Bayern ace, Chelsea could step in. As for Gnabry, Chelsea are looking to find alternatives for Raphinha after that bid seems to be falling apart.
Gnabry is certainly on the Blues’ radar but there is no agreement as of yet between the two clubs. Before the transfer window concludes, Chelsea could accelerate their interest.
