Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino believes Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowsk i would be the perfect fit for the struggling Romelu Lukaku . The Belgian, since arriving on a £97 million transfer, has struggled to get going.

He struck just 15 times across competitions to fall out of favour with manager Thomas Tuchel. Lewandowski could be a replacement for Lukaku after the 33-year-old announced that he intends to leave the German club this summer. Cascarino has called the Polish hitman the 'ultimate goalscorer', saying:

"Mason Mount was the club's top scorer in the Premier League this season, Lukaku hasn't scored enough goals. It's going to come down to Tuchel. Sometimes managers just don't face you, you're not their cup of tea, and it looks that way. It doesn't look like a good fit with Lukaku and Tuchel at Chelsea," Cascarino told talkSport.

"If he's given the option of getting Lewandowski, you're going to go for it. OK, he's 32, but Chelsea signed Thiago Silva and he's been a brilliant signing for the club. If they could get that one over the line, Chelsea missed goals in the centre-forward position all season, it's cost them so dearly."

"They've come third and they are FIFA Club World Cup champions, but they could have done with an ultimate goalscorer and he's one of them."

Lewandowski has scored 344 goals in 375 appearances for Bayern Munich, winning eight consecutive Bundesliga titles, three DFB Pokal and a Champions League title. The 33-year-old doesn't seem to be slowing down, as he scored 50 goals in just 46 games across competitions last season.
