Chelsea have reportedly been asked to be kept in the loop on the future of one world-class striker this summer.
True number 9’s are hard to come by right now, especially ones that are available to buy, and Chelsea are going to need to replace a number 9 of their own.
Romelu Lukaku is within touching distance now of a return to Inter Milan this summer, with a loan deal now very close to being completed.
Will Thomas Tuchel look to replace Lukaku with another number 9? Or will he be looking more down the route of using a false 9, or a second striker as such, having bee linked with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, and Richarlison just to name a few?
If the answer is the first question, then Robert Lewandowski would be THE perfect option, and it is him that they are keeping tabs on, according to 90min.
He prefers Barcelona, but Chelsea have asked his agent to be kept informed of developments in case those negotiations break down, and if they do, Chelsea will make a move.
