Journalist has update on Lewandowski that could affect Chelsea star

TCC View: Chelsea star might just become a target for Bayern Munich, after Lewandowski development

Matt Law has provided some interesting information regarding Robert Lewandowski that may concern Chelsea forward Timo Werner.

Speaking on the London is Blue podcast, Law revealed that he had been handed an insight the future of Bayern Munich’s star striker.

Lewandowski still has two years left on his contract, but there remains uncertainty in the Bavarian camp that he will extend his deal again.

“I keep being told by good contacts that it’s likely Lewandowski will look for something new this summer,” said Law.

Who wants Robert?

Now, this should certainly be of interest to numerous clubs across the globe.

None more so than the Premier League’s powerhouses, who would welcome the Polish international into their clan with welcome arms.

Manchester City are still in the market for a new number nine, having failed to land Harry Kane over the summer.

Liverpool could certainly do with adding another marksmen to their ranks, as Jurgen Klopp’s fabled front three all run out of contract in just over a year-and-a-half.

Manchester United might need to replenish up top, seeing as Cristiano Ronaldo (36) and Edinson Cavani (34) are entering the final stretch of their careers.

Perhaps the only member of England’s elite cohort that doesn’t require a centre-forward right now is Chelsea.

They splashed the big bucks to bring Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge in the previous transfer window.

The Blues opted for the Belgian over the likes of Erling Haaland, Kane and, you guessed it, Lewandowski.

Timo turnaround

Even though the Bayern talisman might not be heading to South West London, a flight to Munich may jetting off in the opposite direction.

There have a fair few rumours swirling around about Timo Werner’s status within Thomas Tuchel’s squad.

Barcelona are said to be intrigued by the German international, who continues to paint a rather unpretty picture in Chelsea blue.

Borussia Dortmund also reportedly want to sign the 25-year-old speed merchant.

Out of the two options, surely the latter would be more appealing.

A return to the Bundesliga, the division he become a household name in and thus the reason Chelsea bought him off RB Leipzig; what’s not to like?

If not Dortmund, perhaps Bayern?

Permitted Lewandoski does leave the Allianz at the end of the season, the German champions will need someone else to spearhead their attack.

Werner would be a likeable option, especially considering he played under Julian Nagelsmann at Leipzig.

“Nagelsmann knows Timo Werner really well, loves Timo Werner,” continued Law.

Currently, Werner remains a Chelsea player.

But that could all change in a few months, so watch this space.
