It is no secret that Chelsea are keen on Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski.
The legendary Polish striker is keen on a fresh challenge during the peak years of his career, with a move to Spain or England his preferred destinations.
He's pretty much done it all with Bayern, bar winning the Champions League and you can understand why a player of his pedigree would want to prove himself in a more competitive league.
And Chelsea represent the most likely English destination for Lewandowski despite the fact they won't be playing Champions League football next season.
Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham all have their own world-class strikers already at the club.
And in a report from The Times, it seems Lewandowski would certainly entertain the notion of signing for the London club but he will only do so once one thing is sorted out.
The Pole will only listen to Chelsea's offers once their managerial situation is resolved, with Lewandowski preferring if Antonio Conte was sacked.
It seems inevitable that the Italian will be offloaded, with his fellow countryman Maurizio Sarri the most likely replacement.
Nice's Jean-Michel Seri has echoed Lewandowski's thoughts on the situation at Stamford Bridge, so it seems even more imperative for Chelsea to start finding solutions.
And after hearing Eden Hazard's words on his future on Tuesday, the arrival of someone like Lewandowski is pretty much a necessity.
Hazard said: “It would be too easy to say: I want to leave because I have done everything. It is for that before everything that I would really like to know what will happen at the club next year.
“I am waiting to see if the coach stays or leaves.
“If I stay, it will be because the team will be better than the season we have just had. I do not want to stay if we are less good.
“Real Madrid can interest me, everyone knows it. But if tomorrow this club does not want me, we will not talk about it anymore.
“If they want to buy me, they know what to do.
“Go there for the sake of it… no. It takes a project. I still have a project in Chelsea. If I have a good World Cup, things will be easier.”
Operation Lewandowski needs to go through for the Blues.
