Chelsea switch targets to Borussia Dortmund striker.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Chelsea have switched their attention from Edinson Cavani to Robert Lewandowski, according to the Metro, as they look for a new striker for next season.

The Blues have been strongly linked with Cavani all summer, though it now looks likely that the Napoli star will choose a move to La Liga with Real Madrid, despite previously hinting that he would like to play under Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea are desperate to land a new striker this summer after the poor form of Fernando Torres and Demba Ba, who could both also leave the club in a summer clear-out in this transfer window.

Borussia Dortmund’s Lewandowski has been in fine form this season, scoring 36 goals to help Jurgen Klopp’s side reach the Champions League final. He will also have impressed Mourinho with four goals in Dortmund’s 4-1 win over his Real Madrid side in the semi-finals.

The Polish striker initially seemed set on a move to Dortmund’s rivals Bayern Munich, though the club have said they will not allow another star player to move to the Allianz Arena, having already lost Mario Goetze to the Bavarian giants.

This could open up the possibility of a move to England, and Chelsea will look to beat the two Manchester clubs to Lewandowski’s signature.
