Chelsea are reportedly keen on continuing their summer spending spree as Roman Abramovich sets his sights on Polish international Robert Lewandowski as a replacement for Ivory Coast veteran Didier Drogba, who left the West London club for Shanghai Shenhua after his Blues contract came to an end.
The 23 year old Borussia Dortmund man netted 30 goals last term and the physically robust forward would lend himself well to the English top tier but Chelsea must fight off interest from Man United who apparently also want to land the young forward.
Roberto Di Matteo may well feel the need to beef up his attacking options as he currently has to rely on first choice Spaniard Fernando Torres justifying his £50m price tag, something the former Liverpool man has solidly failed to achieve during his first 18 months at the club.
The Chelsea boss showed less faith in Daniel Sturridge than predecessor Andre Villas-Boas and the jury is still very much out on Belgian teenager Romelu Lukaku, who failed to net in 12 games last term.
