Chelsea making more noise about Lewandowski (Football365.com)

Despite the numerous stories and statements saying otherwise, Chelsea seems to still believe that Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is available.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia will have to think again as the Blues target two strikers in the summer transfer window. Olivier Giroud is likely to leave this summer, while the club are also said to be willing to listen to offers for Tammy Abraham, who has barely featured since Tuchel took charge in January.

The German boss is said to be keen on a move for Robert Lewandowski and according to Sky Germany they have made contact with the Bayern Munich star over a summer move. A move for Lewandowski would suggest the second striker would need to be someone willing to play second fiddle, with the former Dortmund ace unprepared to sit on the bench if he is to move to the Premier League.

ICYMI: Der Ausblick — Bayern Munich vs. FC Augsburg (Bavarian Football Work)

Just in case you wanted to listen to the last Der Ausblick of this Bundesliga season...

Bayern still chasing Chukwuemeka? (@iMiaSanMia)

Bayern Munich is reportedly still in the running for Aston Villa midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka. With two years left on his deal, the youngster won’t come cheap...and Bayern Munich might not be able to match the deep pockets of Manchester United, Manchester City, or Paris Saint-Germain if this develops into a bidding war:

Ex-Bayern prospect Dorsch to the BuLi? (Transfer Market Web)

Ex-Bayern Munich prospect Niklas Dorsch could find himself in the Bundesliga next season:

According to latest Kicker edition, Hertha Berlin management set their eyes on German U21 international defensive midfielder Niklas Dorsch (23). Playing for Gent since last summer, Bayern Munich alumni, whom Belgian club had pursued from Heidenheim on a 3.5 million euros transfer fee, is bearing with himself a valuable Jupiler League experience, and might be the right one to make it worth into Bundesliga realms.

Besides, Hertha management are also after German right-back Mitchell Weiser, who turned 27 last April 21. Viable also as a wingback, a wide midfielder, and even a wide forward, FC Köln alumni, a former Bayern Munich alumni as well, is fending for Bayer Leverkusen since 2018/19, and used to play for Berlin side from 2015/16 to 2017/18. Throughout his latest three seasons, Weiser is roughly worth the third part of the 12 million euros fee he was transferred by almost three years ago.

Aguero to Barca appears to be done (@FabrizioRomano)

It appears as if Sergio Aguero will move to FC Barcelona:

Rudy’s status in Sinsheim uncertain (kicker)

Sebastian Rudy has no idea if he will have to return to Schalke...and even if he does, has no idea what that means for his career — though it’s speculated he will agree on a contract termination:

In Sebastian Rudy’s case, it’s more the complex contract situation that stands in the way of continuing his career at TSG. The Kraichgauer’s record-breaking player, who is on loan from FC Schalke 04 for the second time, would certainly like to stay just as much as TSG would like to keep him. But whether a solution that is viable for all parties can be found again is just as open as it was before the current season. It was not until the last day of the transfer deadline that Rudy, who had long since committed to Schalke, was transferred after all. Should Rudy and Schalke agree, however, on a termination of the contract, which is still valid until 2022, a renewed commitment of the 31-year-old would be conceivable, at least in theory.

Greizmann to Juve if Ronaldo leaves? (Transfer Market Web)

If Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Juventus, the Italian giants could seek to bring in Antoine Griezmann:

According to Sport, Antoine Griezmann could be a target for Juventus. Everything depends on the qualification for the next Champions League. Without ending in the top four, Cristiano Ronaldo could decide to take a change of air a leave Juventus. And the French striker could be a perfect option for the Old Lady. The Barcelona managers do not believe an exchange between the Frenchman and Joao Felix of Atletico Madrid is possible and are convinced that Juve will cover the possible absence of CR7 with another top player.

But there are many negative points, from Juventus economic difficulties and the will of the Petit Diable, who has a contract until 2024 and didn’t shown any bad mood about his Barça stay. On the season the 30-year-old collected 50 appearances with 19 goals and 12 assists.
