Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski would be a perfect fit for Chelsea, according to their former midfielder, Ray Wilkins

The ex-Chelsea midfielder and coach Ray Wilkins believes the Poland international forward would be a great addition in January, however he says it’s “unlikely” that a transfer could be arranged in Lewandowski’s case between the two sides.

Wilkins says it would be almost impossible to land him, despite the Polish goal scorer seeing his future at Allianz Arena questioned ever since Lewandowski expressed his desire to have another striker at Bayern, who can either replace him sometimes, or at least take a little bit of the workload off him.

Whether he has some help in the front or not, the Polish attacker is still one of the most dangerous strikers in all of Europe, and Bayern would certainly be reluctant to let him go.

According to GOAL, Chelsea would likely be among those in the hunt were the exit door to be opened in Germany, but Wilkins concedes a winter move would be difficult to pull off in the first window of 2018.

“When you’re Chelsea, or any top club for that matter, you’re always looking for Champions League caliber players, most of which are already playing for teams in the competition and therefore are registered and won’t be able to play in European competitions for you. You have to look at teams who have had the unfortunate situation of dropping out of Europe,” the former Blues player told Sporting Bet.

“It would have been lovely to see Bayern Munich knocked out and Robert Lewandowski come to Chelsea but that’s unlikely to happen. He’s a player I’d love to see come to Stamford Bridge. Unless they pull a gem out of the bag, it’s a difficult to window to play in,” Wilkins explained.
