Tuchel Finds Cheaper Alternative To Lewandowski

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is considering his striking options ahead of the new Premier League season.

The Blues have been linked with ambitious moves for Bundesliga duo Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski in recent weeks, though a deal for either player is appearing increasingly unlikely to materialise.

Borussia Dortmund are demanding in the region of £150million for Haaland, which is double the value of what his release clause will be this time next year, meanwhile Bayern are “strongly opposed” to a sale of Lewandowski this summer.

As a result, Chelsea youngster Armando Broja is “at the front of the queue” to be promoted to the squad should the Blues miss out on their targets, according to Goal.

The 19-year-old spent last season on loan at Dutch side Vitesse and scored 10 goals in 30 appearances and recently signed a long-term contract.

Broja's hopes of first-team football may also be boosted by the club's decision to offload Olivier Giroud to AC Milan and potential sale of Tammy Abraham.
