Chelsea have been alerted to the news that Robert Lewandowski could be interested in securing a move to a club other than Bayern Munich when his contract expires next summer.
The Poland international looked set to move to the European Champions at the end of last season, but decided to see his contract out at the Westfalenstadion.
A host of other European clubs had registered an interest in the player, though it seemed he was only interested in moving to Dortmund’s great league rivals.
However, according to reports in the Express, the striker’s agent has revealed that he has had contact with Napoli.
The Serie A side, who are currently managed by former Blues interim manager Rafael Benitez, parted company with star striker Edinson Cavani in July, and would see Lewandowski as an ideal replacement, though they have also brought in Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Callejon.
Jose Mourinho brought in Samuel Eto’o towards the end of the recent transfer window after failing to secure a deal for Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, and would welcome the chance to further strengthen his attacking options.
Lewandowski has scored four goals in five Bundesliga appearances so far this season, including a brace in Saturday’s 6-2 win over Hamburg.
