Neil Ashton is reporting that Chelsea have moved to the front of the queue for Robert Lewandowski.

Bayern Munich’s star striker, 29, changed his agent to Pini Zahavi last week amid plenty of speculation that he’s angling for a move away from the Bundesliga’s reigning champs as Real Madrid, PSG and others circle the star who is contracted to Bayern until 2021.

Yet the forward had this to say to Sky Sport in Germany over the weekend about changing from his agent of 10 years, Cezary Kucharski. Does it mean he will be moving on from Bayern?

“No, it has nothing to do with that. The speculation is funny, but it doesn’t interest me,” Lewandowski said.

Zahavi is a close ally of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and played a big role in Neymar’s world-record move from Barcelona to PSG last summer.
