Timo Werner Agrees With Antonio Rudiger About Robert Lewandowski Amid Chelsea Transfer 'Contact'



Chelsea has reportedly made contact with a striker who has previously earned high praise from Blues duo Timo Werner and Antonio Rudiger.

Robert Lewandowski to Chelsea would seem to be a common signing among two of Thomas Tuchel's squad members.

The prolific Bayern Munich striker is the subject of the Blues' current transfer rumor mill.

Chelsea, according to Sky Sports Germany, has made contact with the Poland international about a summer move in order to address their goal-scoring problems ahead of next season.

Furthermore, the article claims that Blues head coach Tuchel is open to bringing in a new attacking choice after losing confidence in the team's current number nine. 

Tammy Abraham and Lewandowski are among the names on the German tactician's shortlist.

It remains to be seen if the west London club will entice the 32-year-old to join them at Stamford Bridge, but he will be the missing piece in Tuchel's attacking puzzle.

Finding the back of the net on a consistent basis has never been a problem for Lewandowski, whether with Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, or the Poland national team.

This season, he has 47 goals in 39 games across all competitions as Bayern wins the Bundesliga for the ninth time in a row.

He has equaled the 49-year-old Bundesliga record of legendary German striker Gerd Muller by playing 40 of the 47 games in Germany's top flight.

With one game remaining, there's a good chance Lewandowski will break the record before the 2020/21 season is finished.

Timo Werner, a current Chelsea forward, is acquainted with Lewandowski from his time with RB Leipzig in Germany and knows firsthand how dangerous the Pole is in front of goal.

"Unless your name is Robert Lewandowski, you can't score every game," Werner joked last year. "When I score two goals in Berlin and he scores two against Dortmund, I wonder when he'll stop.

"At the moment, he's in the same league as Ronaldo and Messi."

Although Werner's teammate and countryman Antonio Rudiger did not go so far as to compare Lewandowski to Messi and Ronaldo, he did give the striker the ultimate compliment.

"In recent years, the strongest No.9s have been Mauro Icardi, Harry Kane, and Robert Lewandowski. This season, Lewandowski seems to have improved even further "Last season, Rudiger said this ahead of Chelsea's Champions League last-16 match against Bayern Munich.

"I have a lot of admiration for him. It will be a difficult task to keep him in place.

"We can only do it as a group."
