Chelsea have been chasing a top striker all summer long. Of their options last season, Olivier Giroud has departed for AC Milan, whilst Tammy Abraham, frozen out by Thomas Tuchel, has also been linked with a move away.

With just Timo Werner or Kai Havertz left as recognised options to lead the line, the way is paved for another striker to enter the frame at Stamford bridge.
However, it seems as though that player will not be Erling Haaland, the young prodigy at Borussia Dortmund.
Future Borussia Dortmund sport director Sebastian Kehl to SkyDe: “Haaland to Chelsea? I read about it, but for us nothing has changed: we have plans with Erling for next season, he and his agent are aware of it. We expect him back this week”. 🔴 @Sky_MaxB #BVB #CFC

The Norwegian forward is set to remain at Dortmund this summer, as per widespread reports, with Dortmund no longer needing to sell following Jadon Sancho’s 73 million pound move to Manchester United.

One of those, according to The Sun, is Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.
As per the report, Roman Abramovich is willing to put up 50 million pounds in hope of securing the Polish forward’s signature, but the 32-year-old is also thought to be considering a new deal in Bavaria.
However, Bayern are apparently willing to part ways with their forward if a big enough offer were to come in.
Will this prove a fruitful move for all parties?
