Thomas Tuchel advises a Chelsea player to sign as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has pushed the club to sign Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich as a substitute for Romelu Lukaku this summer.
After one season at Stamford Bridge, Lukaku is keen to return to Inter Milan.
Last season at Chelsea, the Belgian international struggled, netting just eight goals in 26 Premier League games.
Chelsea’s new co-owner Todd Boehly held talks with Inter this week, with the West London club indicating their willingness to let Lukaku leave.
Chelsea are now aiming to bring in another striker to headline their attack next season, while the terms of the transaction are still being worked out.
According to ESPN, Tuchel has urged Chelsea to enter the competition to sign Lewandowski, who is pushing to leave Bayern Munich this summer after failing to reach an agreement on a new contract.
Tuchel believes the Poland international, who will be 34 by the start of the new season, would flourish in the Premier League.
Barcelona, who are interested in signing Lewandowski, will be a tough competitor for Chelsea.
The Blues, on the other hand, have Christopher Nkunku of RB Leipzig on their radar.
