Romelu Lukaku has previously claimed to be as good as Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski after the Poland international was linked with a move to Stamford Bridge. The Bayern Munich striker recently claimed he had likely played his last game for the German giants with his contract set to expire in the summer.

Lewandowski once again finished as the Bundesliga's top scorer this season, finding the net 35 times in 34 league games, adding a further 11 in 10 in the Champions League. The 33-year- old will not be short of options if he does choose to leave Bayern this summer and Barcelona have frequently been linked with the forward.

However, Chelsea are also in contention to secure the signature of the £26m-rated ace according to according to football consultant Ian McGarry . With the future of Lukaku a constant source of speculation, the Blues are eyeing potential ways to strengthen.

Speaking after Bayern Munich's clash with Wolfsburg via, Gianluigi Longari, Lewandowski said:

"It is very likely that this is my last match with Bayern. I can't say one-hundred per cent, but maybe it was. We want to find the best solution for me and the club."

But if Lukaku and Lewandowksi do end up competing for Thomas Tuchel's one striking spot next term, the £97 million summer signing has already warned his manager that it will not be an easy decision. Speaking at Euro 2020, Lukaku insisted that he is now on the same level as Europe's elite forwards.

"When they talk about [Roberts] Lewandowski, [Karim] Benzema, [Luis] Suarez, [Harry] Kane, they would say it's world class level and with me it's always about being in good form," he said back in the summer of 2021.

 "'In the last two years I think I have shown it's not just good form. I belong with that group, I am at that level."
