Chelsea are reportedly keen to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski. The Blues are, however, set to face stiff competition from Barcelona and PSG for the 33-year-old's services.

According to Bavarian Footballworks , Chelsea are still hopeful that they can beat Barcelona and PSG in the race to sign the Poland international but could be fighting a losing cause The Blues view him as a potential replacement for Belgian hitman Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku joined Chelsea from Inter Milan for a club-record fee of £97.5 million. The Premier League giants signed him in the hope that he would lead them to a league title.

The 28-year-old, however, endured a disappointing 2021-22 campaign, scoring just 15 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions. He struggled to adapt to Thomas Tuchel's system and fell behind Kai Havertz and Timo Werner in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge during the second half of the season.

As per Sky Sports , Lukaku is eager to leave Stamford Bridge and return to Inter Milan this summer. Chelsea could therefore be in the market for a replacement for the striker if he leaves the club.

Robert Lewandowski has developed into one of the best strikers of his generation during his time with Bayern Munich. The 33-year-old has scored 344 goals in 375 appearances during his eight seasons with Bayern and has helped them win eight consecutive Bundesliga titles, three DFB Pokals, and a Champions League.

The Polish hitman has just one year remaining on his contract with the Bavarians and has made clear his desire to leave the club this summer and is seeking a new challenge. As per Christian Falk, Barcelona and PSG are ahead of Chelsea in the race to sign Lewandowski.

The Catalan giants are believed to be favorites in the race to sign the forward. Barcelona are seemingly heading in the right direction and are therefore keen to make some statement signings this summer to boost their chances of winning the league title next season.

PSG have the financial power to offer Lewandowski a lucrative contract. The striker's potential move away from Bayern Munich could be his last big-money move as he approaches the latter stages of his career.

Chelsea are hopeful of luring the Bayern star to Stamford Bridge. However, reports suggest his wife Anna does not fancy moving to England, whilst his former agent has claimed that he is reluctant to move to the Premier League.
