Chelsea are considering competing with Barcelona for the signing of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, with Thomas Tuchel desperate to add more firepower to his attack.

The Blues started the season with hopes of a title challenge, but Liverpool and Manchester City quickly pulled away from Tuchel’s side.

Romelu Lukaku was signed for a club-record fee of £97million last summer but he has only scored eight league goals this season and the Blues are open to offers for the Belgian.

Mason Mount is the only Chelsea player to have hit double figures this season and Tuchel feels the side’s lack of goals has cost them dearly.

The German therefore feels the club have two options; Either to get more out of the current roster or to add more firepower on offense.

“If we stick to the group, we will try to solve it with these players,” said Tuchel

“Is it necessary to get more attacking players around the box to create more distractions to create more space for each other? We will ask this question. Can we make the structure better? Can we push the players more? Did we film too much? Let’s see.

“There are many opportunities. The numbers we produce from our attacking players don’t allow us to overperform and we need overperformance if we want to be closer to the top two teams.

“I’m not pointing fingers, I’m not blaming anyone, but we need overperformance from everyone. It’s not an overachievement when we only have single-digit goals and assists.’

The Guardian claim Lewandowski is now a serious option for the Blues and the board are considering questioning his signature.

The Pole has one year left to finalize his contract at Bayern Munich but he appeared to be saying goodbye to fans at the Allianz Arena last week.

The former Dortmund ace is keen to join Barcelona but it remains to be seen if the Catalans can afford the Pole’s salary, especially given their financial woes.
