In what will come as a huge surprise to the footballing world, English Premier League side Chelsea will reportedly try the near-impossible by making an attempt to sign German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski this summer. The Blues are said to be hunting for a new striker as reports have suggested that they will be letting go of Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud this summer.

Giroud is a wanted man at Inter Milan and Antonio Conte tried to sign the former Arsenal forward for the Italian Serie  A Champions last summer but Chelsea blocked the move and the French striker remained at Stamford Bridge. Tammy Abraham, on the other hand, is expected to likely complete a summer exit from the club as he has continued to fund playing time hard to come by. Both he and Giroud have been limited to fewer game opportunities at the club since the arrival of Timo Werner last season from RB Leipzig and the situation has not changed since then.

It is a huge surprise that Chelsea are showing interest in Lewandowski because Bayern Munich will reportedly reject any bid from any club this summer from the Poland international striker. Last month, the German Bundesliga giants director announced that the striker will not be sold to any club regardless of the amount that is being tabled and they are expected to maintain that stance.

Lewandowski has scored a whopping 40 goals in the Bundesliga alone this season and has tied the record of the most goals scored by a player in the league set by Gerd Muller over three decades ago and he is one player no club will ever see as sellable no matter the amount that is being offered by the interested club.
