Despite winning the UEFA Champions League last season, Chelsea is determined to enhance their offensive this summer. In 2020-21, the Blues scored the fewest goals among the Premier League's top six teams. Thomas Tuchel understands that his current frontline will not be enough to propel his team to the top of the table in the forthcoming season.

As a result, Chelsea is eyeing a slew of targets to put together an attack capable of winning silverware by the end of the summer. Next season, the Blues are anticipated to compete for the Premier League and defend their Champions League title.

According to The Express via The Sun, Chelsea is contemplating a £50 million bid for Robert Lewandowski. The Blues are after Erling Haaland, but it's becoming evident that the Norwegian won't be leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer. Thomas Tuchel is anxious to acquire a new No.9 to his squad and is willing to look at other options.

Lewandowski has been regarded as the ideal replacement for Haaland by the Premier League giants, and they are ready to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea is poised to satisfy the Polish striker's request to try a new challenge, as he has previously stated. Lewandowski is one of the most disastrous strikers in the world, and he is coming off a tremendous 2020-21 season with Bayern Munich, in which he scored 48 goals in 40 games across all competitions.

However, the 32-year-old is critical to the Bavarians' cause, and getting his signature with two years left on his deal will be difficult.

According to Caught Offside through Athletic, Tottenham Hotspur's interest in Tammy Abraham might offer Chelsea a significant advantage in the race for Harry Kane. The Blues are looking for a new striker this summer and are keeping an eye on Kane. The Englishman wants to leave Tottenham this summer, and Manchester City keeps a close eye on him.

On the other hand, Chelsea appears to have a chance to beat their rivals to Kane if they are willing to add Abraham in a player-plus-cash deal for the Spurs star.
