This Robert Lewandowski deal to Chelsea is already proving realistic, as player declared his interest in moving to the premier league.
Lewandowski has told Chelsea what they want to hear
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has previously admitted that he would love to experience playing in the Premier League.
Chelsea are desperate to add a striker to their ranks this summer and the Poland international has been closely linked with a move to Stamford Bridge over the last few days. Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland remains the club’s number one target to bolster their attacking ranks, but the prospect of a deal being done for him is beginning to look more and more unlikely.
Instead, Chelsea are poised to turn to Lewandowski, with them reportedly ready to make a £50million offer.
Should Chelsea make their move and look to lure the striker to Stamford Bridge, Lewandowski may not take much persuasion as he admitted several years ago that he would like to play in England.
“I will be able to sign a contract [with any club] in January, but I have never said that I will sign a contract with Bayern,” Lewandowski told The Telegraph back in 2013.
“It was a misunderstanding. It is true I had an opportunity to speak with Sir Alex Ferguson [ in 2012], but we didn’t mention the transfer.
“One day I would like to play in Premier League. It would be a great experience.”
