Borussia Dortmund are looking to reverse the continuing exodus, that seems likely to see Robert Lewandowski leave sooner rather than later, by setting their sights on a pair of young Chelsea talents according to Bild.

Jurgen Klopp has seen the likes of Nuri Sahin, Shinji Kagawa and Mario Gotze leave the Westfalenstadion in recent seasons and is hoping to strengthen his squad ahead of what may prove a massive task as he seeks to wrestle domestic dominance back from a Bayern Munich side that won the lot last term and now have Pep Guardiola at the Allianz Arena helm.

Dortmund hope to lure Belgian pair Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku from Stamford Bridge, no doubt offering the young duo a chance of regular first team football, one that could be tough to secure at Chelsea, but it’s a move that Jose Mourinho may not be amenable to.

The returning Blues boss has made a point of stating that all members of his expansive squad will have the chance to impress him during pre-season which means that De Bruyne and Lukaku, who had stellar campaigns on loan at Werder Bremen and West Brom respectively, could still have a part to play in West London.

Clearly Romelu Lukaku will get a sense of just how much of a chance he is going to get if Mourinho brings in another striker, having already signed adaptable attacker Andre Schurrle this summer.

De Bruyne’s impressive form in the German top tier may well have convinced Klopp that he is the right man to replace Gotze, who fled for Bayern Munich.
