Chelsea were among the clubs to have been linked with a move for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.

Lewandowski is now set for a move to Barcelona, as the Bavarians have reportedly reached an agreement with Barcelona.

Lewandowski had his heart set out on a move to Barca from the onset, and Thomas Tuchel has admitted that Chelsea were never really in the race to sign the Polish striker.

Thomas Tuchel hailed the ability of Lewandowski, but he admitted that he preferred a move to sign Raheem Sterling.

“I don’t think we have a chance for Lewandowski but if there is a chance, he is one of the best No.9s,” Tuchel told The Telegraph.

“The priority is not on the No.9 position right now.

“We have our top priority [Sterling], we have got our top priority signed.

“It makes me very, very happy and from there we are very flexible. Our goal threat should be enough right now

“If we think something crazy comes up that we don’t see, maybe we will get involved, maybe not.”

  1. I think Chelsea still need a striker, maybe they feel comfortable with Raheem Sterling at the front right now but I think also that’s not enough to compete for the premier league title
