Another Robert Lewandowski replacement breakdown for Bayern Munich...who ya got?
Sport1 journalists Kerry Hau and Felix Kunkel dug deep to track down all of the latest news on the players being considered to eventually replace Robert Lewandowski at Bayern Munich. Sasa Kalajdzic, VfB Stuttgart: Julian Nagelsmann wants a striker to can get aerial on crosses and Kalajdzic fits that mold. Christopher Nkunku, RB Leipzig: The Frenchman has the scoring touch, but is considered a more likely replacement should Serge Gnabry leave. Sadio Mane, Liverpool: Like Nkunku, Mane is considered more of a replacement for Gnabry than Lewandowski.
Timo Werner, Chelsea FC: Julian Nagelsmann would take him, Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic would not. Patrik Schick, Bayer Leverkusen: Die Werkself won’t sell Schick for less than €70 million, so it does not look like the Czech Hitman will be headed to Bayern Munich. Sebastien Haller, Ajax: Borussia Dortmund is leading Bayern Munich on the former Eintracht Frankfurt striker. Richarlison, Everton: Sport1 says that Bayern Munich has made contact with the Brazilian international’s representatives, but nothing considerable was discussed.
Darwin Nunez, Benfica: The Portuguese club wants €60 million to €80 million for Nunez and Bayern Munich thinks that is too much for a player without experience in a Top 5 league. Hugo Ekitike, Stade Reims: Ekitike is considered too green to be an immediate replacement for Lewandowski, but could be an option for the future. Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea FC: Lukaku has said he could see himself playing for Bayern Munich at some point, but a huge transfer fee and big salary would be roadblocks.
