Former Chelsea forward Shaun Wright-Phillips believes Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski would be the perfect replacement for Romelu Lukaku . The talismanic Bayern striker's future is one of interest as talks over a new contract between the Bavarians and the Polish forward have reached an impasse.

Jan Aage Fjortfort reports that the striker will either sign a new deal, be sold this summer, or be allowed to leave for free in 2023. One club that is reportedly interested in Lewandowski is Chelsea, who have been encountering their own issues with their star striker Lukaku.

The Belgian has encountered somewhat of a nightmare return to Stamford Bridge since his club-record £97.8 million move from Inter Milan last summer. Wright-Phillips believes Thomas Tuchel should look to replace the Belgian with the Bayern Munich striker. He told LordPing (via Football London ):

"No matter what the score is, his name always seems to be on the scoresheet. At the minute, Chelsea doesn't seem to suit the way Lukaku plays. It's either Rom needs to change his game up a little bit, or Chelsea has to change their tactics to suit the way he plays. At the same time, you've got to do what you've got to do. As a professional player, you know what's in front of you."

Lukaku has just 12 goals in 36 games for the Blues, across competitions, since his return. Lewandoski, on the other hand, has a remarkable 47 goals in 41 Bayern games, from various tournaments. Wright-Phillips continued,

"If you want to be successful, you might have to sometimes change the way you play. It's hard to tell [if Lukaku will stay] because can any club afford him? He's in a situation where he got bought for a lot of money.

 Not a lot of clubs have that sort of money lying around, especially with COVID. Chelsea will have to move players around, so it depends if that option is even available. He's got to make a decision, and he's got to fight for his career and fight to play. That's what happens at Chelsea."
