The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have spent the last few days discussing the prospect of Robert Lewandowski moving to Stamford Bridge. The Polish forward is reportedly a target of the Blues, according to a report from the Mirror released late last week.
However, at 29-years-old, a move for the Pole might not be best for business. Instead, Chelsea should look at a younger target, and 24-year-old attacker Paulo Dybala would be a fantastic choice.
Dybala has been one of Juventus’ most important players over the last few years, having emerged as one of Italy’s best. The Argentine international has consistently performed in-front of goal, with a stunning 22 league goals this season building on tallies like 11 and 19.
He’s an incredibly technically gifted player, and given the type of players that Chelsea have been targeting in recent years, the Argentine would be a good fit. Alongside the likes of Eden Hazard and Willian, he’d fit right in.
Chelsea’s managerial situation is unclear, of course, but particularly if Maurizio Sarrri comes in – as is being reported – he could be a fantastic fit. Though perhaps better suited to more of a number 10 role, he’d be able to serve as a fluid false-9, helping to connect all of the dots between the midfield and the attack.
Roman Abramovich’s men clearly have a major problem, and its name is Alvaro Morata. The Spaniard has been poor during his first season in England, and if the Blues want to win the title next season, this is a problem that needs fixing. Lewandowski isn’t the solution they need, though. Instead, the technically-gifted, lethal Dybala would be a far better choice.
