Chelsea are reportedly monitoring any developments with the future of Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski.
On Saturday, the legendary frontman confirmed that he would like to depart the Allianz Arena this summer, revealing that he had no intention of penning a new contract.
While Bayern officials have played down the chances of the 33-year-old being allowed to move elsewhere, much is said to depend on whether they can find a suitable replacement.
However, according to The Guardian, Chelsea may involve themselves in the race for the player if Barcelona cannot meet Bayern's asking price, which is currently undetermined.
Furthermore, a takeover of Chelsea must still go through as soon as possible, with fresh doubts allegedly emerging over the process.
