ALVARO MORATA is one of a number of strikers Bayern Munich are looking at should they lose Robert Lewandowski, according to reports in Spain.
While the Bavarians continue to insist they will not be bullied into selling players, rumours of the Pole leaving for Real Madrid continue to gather momentum.
Earlier today, it had been suggested Lewandowski, 29, was ready to hand in a transfer request as he wants one last big move in his career.
Should that happen, Bayern will need a replacement — and AS claim Morata is one of the players they are looking at.
The Spanish striker joined Chelsea in the summer, and initially looked like a hit with eight goals in his first nine games.
However, he recently ended a shocking three-month goal drought in the Blues’ 2-1 victory over Leicester in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
His recent struggles in front of goal have even put his World Cup hopes in serious jeopardy, with his main rivals for Julen Lopetegui’s 23-man squad all impressing during the international break.
Meanwhile, the article also claims Bayern are looking at RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
The German hotshot, 22, netted the winner as the two sides met in the Bundesliga two weeks ago.
Edinson Cavani is another top striker the Bavarians could turn to should Lewandowski leave.
