Granovskaia targets two strikers in Chelsea overhaul

May 21, 2021 0 By HearthstoneYarns

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia will have to think again as the Blues target two strikers in the summer transfer window.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have been linked with moves for Erling Haaland, Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero.

It’s unlikely Spurs will sell to London rivals Chelsea and Kane himself would rather move to Manchester or abroad.

The Blues have reported interest in Haaland, but will face tough competition from several top European clubs and a potentially lengthy process to persuade Borussia Dortmund to sell and Haaland to join.

And they are also set to miss out on Aguero, with The Mirror claiming the 32-year-old is set to join Lionel Messi at Barcelona on a two-year deal worth £80,000-a-week.

That is a particular blow to Chelsea, who were said to be very tempted by a bargain with Aguero available on a free transfer.

But it will not stop Granovskaia searching for new options, with the Express claiming she will target two new strikers this summer.

Timo Werner has struggled to score the goals expected of him having in a £48million deal last summer, though he does lead the way for Chelsea in terms of goal contributions, with 27 in all competitions this season.

Olivier Giroud is likely to leave this summer, while the club are also said to be willing to listen to offers for Tammy Abraham, who has barely featured since Tuchel took charge in January.

The German boss is said to be keen on a move for Robert Lewandowski and according to Sky Germany they have made contact with the Bayern Munich star over a summer move.

The Poland international has scored an incredible 47 goals this year, including 40 in 28 Bundesliga games.

It would be something of a surprise, given he’s 32, but the success of the move for 36-year-old Thiago Silva will have eased their concerns.

A move for Lewandowski would suggest the second striker would need to be someone willing to play second fiddle, with the former Dortmund ace unprepared to sit on the bench if he is to move to the Premier League.
