Chelsea Transfer News: In recent times the Blues have been linked with a host of players. However the most surprising of them all was Cristino Ronaldo. The former Real Madrid star is said to be keen on a move away from the club.
While Todd Bohely asked Tuchel whether he wants to sign the 37 years old or not. Now according to journalist Ben Jacobs, Tuchel is keen on singing Robert Lewandoski instead of the Portuguese.
The Blues are in need of a new No.9 following the departure of Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian in his second stint at the club failed to make an impact. Now he is at Inter Milan on loan from Chelsea. Thus Tuchel wants a new No. 9
The likes of Kai Havertz and Timo Werner have played as No. 9s. However, they haven’t been convincing enough. While the future of Armando Broja is subject to speculation.
Chelsea Transfer News: Robert Lewandowski to Chelsea
The Blues have been linked with the Pole for some time now. However, it is very much clear that he only wants to move to Barcelona. It is believed that Bayern Munich may soon accept an offer from Barca for Lewandoski.
The Bavarians have already signed Sadio Mane from Liverpool. They are now keen on Harry Kane as his replacement as well. Thus Chelsea will be keen to avoid a repeat of Raphina’s situation.
Although it is not clear why Lewandowski is being preferred over Ronaldo. Both players are in their late 30s. They will find it hard to press higher up the pitch. Lewandowski is also completely untested outside the Bundesliga as well.
It could be possible that the former Juventus star might not want to move to a direct rival of Manchester United. But it is very clear that the player wants to leave the club.
Chelsea Transfer News: Potential No.9s for Thomas Tuchel
Fabrizio Romano has confirmed the arrival of Raheem Sterling. But the Englishman is also not a traditional No.9. It is likely that Tuchel wants a No.9 who can be a target man.
In the modern game, it is very difficult to find a No.9 who can score goals as well. Perhaps a chance can be given to Armando Broja. Last season he only managed to score six goals. However, he is still only 20 years old.
He is perhaps the best option as a No.9 for Chelsea. Todd Bohely will be cautious in spending big money on a striker. Romelu Lukaku debacle is an example of that. He is not the first striker to have failed at Stamford Bridge.
Perhaps Kai Havertz will have to develop his game as a false No.9. Then Broja can be introduced to the first team in a planned manner. Timo Werner at times can also fill in as a No.9.
