Stamford Bridge side set sights on Polish marksman.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will attempt lure Polish international forward Robert Lewandowski to Stamford Bridge this summer and hopes to make the Borussia Dortmund hot-shot the first signing of a new Jose Mourinho regime according to the Daily Express.
Interest in the 24 year old Bundesliga ace has sky-rocketed since his outstanding four goal salvo against Real Madrid and Chelsea must fight the likes of Bayern Munich and Manchester United to sign the in-form striker, who does seem likely to leave Borussia Dortmund sooner or later.
Jurgen Klopp is struggling to keep the nucleus of the squad that clinched back to back Bundesliga titles, with Shinji Kagawa joining Man United last summer and Mario Gotze having already agreed a move to Bayern Munich, and Lewandowski has refused to sign a new contract and has just over a year to run on his current deal.
Abramovich is no doubt looking to strengthen his attack and Lewandowski is the latest in a long line of high-profile forwards said to be on the Blues shopping list.
Lewandowski scored 30 goals in all competitions last term and has 31 to his name in the current campaign.
With Fernando Torres struggling for form and Romelu Lukaku still unsure of his standing in the Chelsea squad there is certainly scope for a striking addition.
