The London giants reportedly have a deal ready to try and seal the transfer of Borussia Dortmund centre-forward Erling Haaland this summer. The 20-year-old centre-forward has been a world-class performer for Dortmund and it would be exciting to see him in the PL during his peak years.
He’s attracting interest from both Chelsea and Man City, with Chelsea apparently having a deal in the works for Haaland. That sounds promising from Blues point of view, with new manager Thomas Tuchel looking in need of some new signings to freshen up this slightly unconvincing squad.
Despite spending big on new attacking footballers like Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech in the summer, Chelsea still looks in need of more of a goal threat up front after some disappointing form from Werner in particular.
Norway international could be a major upgrade after his incredible record of 38 goals in 40 matches for Dortmund, as he shows himself to be one of the best finishers in Europe. One can only wonder how good he’d be under a coach like Tuchel, who has previously shown he’s a superb coach for talented teenagers.
The Norwegian centre-forward has been on fire in front of goal for Bundesliga giants and it looks just a matter of time before he makes his way to a bigger club.
