Chelsea have emerged as surprise contenders to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski this summer.
The Poland international had another superb season with the Bavarian giants last term, registering 48 goals in just 40 appearances.
He has two years left on his contract, but reports have recently emerged that the Pole wants to test himself in the Premier League.
According to The Sun, the Blues could be lining up an approach for the marksman as they look to mount a serious title challenge.
Bayern are reluctant to lose their leading star, but reports claim that a fee of around £50 million could change their stance.
The 32-year-old has also been linked with Real Madrid in the past, but the club are now focused on landing Kylian Mbappe.
Meanwhile, the Blues have failed in their attempts to convince Borussia Dortmund to sell Erling Braut Haaland this summer.
Lewandowski has emerged as the alternative. The Pole has been the best striker in the world in recent years despite his advancing age.
