Serie A champions Juventus are reportedly preparing a shock move for Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski to replace Gonzalo Higuain at Turin.
This summer transfer window could see a few of the best strikers in Europe change clubs as Gonzalo Higuain and Robert Lewandowski are set to leave their respective clubs in order for different challenges.
According to reports in Italy, Chelsea is targeting Higuain in a deal that could lure the Argentine to Stamford Bridge in the summer. Higuain is keen on playing in a different league after winning the Serie A title in both the seasons with the Old Lady. And Juventus are willing to offload the 30-year-old centre-forward this summer in order to refresh their team for next season.
Higuain is likely to replace the misfiring Alvaro Morata at Chelsea with the Spaniard keen on moving to AC Milan. However, the West London outfit will have to try and convince the Juventus board to sell their superstar because they will not let Higuain leave for cheap after signing him for €90 million two seasons ago from Napoli. The Italian champions value the striker at around €60 million if they are to part ways this summer.
And Juventus are ready to sign Bayern Munich’s master marksman Robert Lewandowski to fill in the void for Higuain when he leaves. The Polish international has reportedly told his agent that he wants out of the Allianz Arena in order to win the elusive Champions League trophy in his career. The 29-year-old has won four Bundesliga titles with the Bavarian giants but has failed to taste continental success.
Lewandowski has scored 41 times this season and Juventus want to add the striker to ensure they still have a natural goal scorer at Turin.
I could very much see this deal taking place because both the centre-forwards, Higuain and Lewandowski want out of their respective clubs. But we will have to wait and see whether Bayern Munich will allow their top scorer to leave the club.
