Chelsea make Bayern Munich forward their main summer target

Reports are emerging from The Telegraph that Chelsea are aiming to bring experienced Bayern Munich goalscorer Robert Lewandowski to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Bad news for Morata

Of course, if Lewandowski does become a Chelsea player this summer, that would surely signal the end of Alvaro Morata’s short spell as a Chelsea player.

The Spaniard arrived at Stamford Bridge in the 2017 summer transfer window for a fee of around £60 million.

Despite the hefty price tag though, Morata has failed to impress for The Blues. The forward started the season well scoring six goals in his first six league games.

However, since the 9th of December 2017, Morata has scored a dismal two Premier League goals. His poor displays brought him under huge criticism from his manager and fans alike.

This would lead to Morata becoming somewhat of a fringe player for Chelsea as Antonio Conte would at times, chose to play Eden Hazard up front, rather than Morata.

Alvaro Morata’s poor season would also see him miss out on Spain’s World Cup squad when it was announced yesterday. Now, with Lewandowski likely set for Stamford Bridge, Morata’s season looks to go from bad to worse as he is seemingly being forced out of Chelsea, just a year after his big money move.

A real asset for Chelsea

However, given that Chelsea failed to qualify for the Champions League this season, it is clear they are in need of some fresh legs as Stamford Bridge. Especially in the striking department, where, as mentioned above, Morata scored just two league goals from the 9th of December till the end of the season.

Lewandowski, on the other hand, is a prolific, consistent, goal scorer. During his time at Dortmund, Lewandowski played 187 games for them. Racking up 103 goals and 43 assists in that time.

Then, when Lewandowski moved to his current club Bayern Munich he has, so far, played 195 competitive games for the German giants. In which the Bayern forward has managed to score a very impressive 151 goals, as well as earning 35 assists.

This shows Lewandowski could be a real asset to Chelsea. And while this move may spell the end of Alvaro Morata’s time at Chelsea, Lewandowski would do a much better job of helping them fight for a Champions League spot next season.
