Chelsea are looking to significantly rejuvenate their side this summer after failing to qualify for the Champions League and major changes could occur in their attack.

The Blues have seen club-record signing Alvaro Morata struggle for consistency during his first campaign in the Premier League and it’s suggested they’ll approve a departure, with Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan all stated to be interested.

Chelsea would then use the funds raised by a sale to pursue a new top-class striker and it’s widely reported that Bayern Munich ace Robert Lewandowski is the club’s prime target, though he’s also been linked with Champions League finalists Real Madrid.

However, both clubs could be set for disappointment in the market as Bayern president Uli Hoeness has vowed not to sell the Poland international and has pointed to the forward’s contract that runs to 2021 as evidence of the strong position the Bundesliga champions hold.

While it may be difficult for Bayern to retain Lewandowski’s services if he pushes for a move, he won’t come cheap and Chelsea may struggle to finance a deal.
