He scored an incredible 344 goals from the 375 matches that he played for Bayern. The 33-year-old was truly a goal machine and rightfully called Lewan’goalski’ by Thomas Muller.
He won eight Bundesliga titles, three DFB Pokal German Cup, and a Champions League with the Bavarians. Though it would be hard for Bayern to find a striker of his caliber, still, they have to plan things without the Polish international. Additionally, the signing of Sadio Mane and the extension of the contract by Serge Gnabry can help with Bayern’s attacking options.
Who are the three strikers that Bayern Munich could sign to replace Lewandowski?
Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)
Harry Kane was strongly linked with an exit from Spurs last season, however that never gained a fruitful conclusion. However, there have been no talks related to his exit this year, still, his future at the club is far from certain. He has only two years left on his contract.
Moreover, recently, Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn in a press conference described Kane to be a ‘top striker’.
Kahn added that signing Kane is a ‘dream of the future’. Therefore, it is to be understood that Kane will not be signed this summer. Kane is also a wonderful talent and is a proven goalscorer.
Victor Osimhen (Napoli)
Osimhen is now undoubtedly one of the most sorts after strikers in Europe. He has been scoring goals regularly for Lille and Napoli for the last three years. After impressing at Lille he continued with his form even at Napoli where he scored 14 goals last season. This form earned him interest from Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Arsenal. Osimhen has also three years left on his contract.
Therefore, even if he is signed by Bayern it would be in the future.
Jonathan David (Lille)
David at such a ripe age is an amazing talent. David’s highlight season was the 2020-21 season for Lille where he scored 13 goals to make the club lift the Ligue 1 title. David was also impressive for his country Canada where he scored nine goals in the World Cup qualifying campaign. Such form has attracted attention from clubs like Bayern and a number of elite clubs in Europe.
Therefore, Bayern could step up their interest in the future.
