The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are intrigued by reports linking their side with a move for Robert Lewandowski. According to the Telegraph, the Pole has been made their number one transfer target – which certainly suggests that they’re keen to bring him to London.
However, our landlord is of the opinion that landing Lewandowski, who is rated at £81 million by Transfer Markt, would be one of Chelsea’s biggest mistakes in a very long time.
After all, let’s not forget, Chelsea spent big on a new striker last summer in Alvaro Morata. The Spaniard hasn’t had the best season, granted, but it would be a shame for Chelsea to give up on him so soon. It hasn’t been too long since Chelsea were faced with a similar situation in the form of Didier Drogba – and that didn’t turn out too badly for the Blues. A lack of patience has been very problematic for the Blues in recent years, and this would be another case of moving too quickly.
Furthermore, despite his success in other leagues, there is no guaranteeing that Lewandowski would be a hit in the Premier League. He’s been a star in Germany, of course, but he hasn’t been able to test himself in England, and so spending so much money on him would undeniably be a risk.
It’s not like he’s a youngster with years to get used to the English top flight. He’s already 29, and so a fresh start may not be best for Chelsea right now.
