Chelsea set to make a bid ‘imminently’ for World-Class Striker
According to journalist Andreas Korssund, Chelsea is set to make a bid for Borussia Dortmund superstar and top transfer target Erling Haaland imminently.
Haaland, who turned 21 this month, has quickly established himself as one of the most lethal strikers in the game currently, after enjoying a brilliant eighteen-month spell with Dortmund. Having signed from RB Salzburg in January last year, the Norwegian has plundered 57 goals in 59 games for the Black and Yellows.
Borussia Dortmund has been reported to want as much as €200 million (around £170 million) for the Norwegian, who last season continued his prolific goalscoring form by becoming the youngest player to reach 20 Champions League goals.
The Football Insider make us know that Chelsea is ready to test the German club’s resolve with a £130 million offer for their most prized asset – but that owner Roman Abramovich won’t sanction a fee any higher than that.
Borussia Dortmund has maintained their stance throughout the summer that star striker Erling Haaland will remain at the club for the coming season. Having already made the big money sale of Jadon Sancho to Manchester United, the Bundesliga giants may not particularly need to sell anymore, but things can change in football.
The prospect of Erling Haaland leaving in this window won’t be ideal to Dortmund from a footballing perspective, but if they receive an unbelievable offer, they could consider a deal. The Norwegian striker is reportedly valued at £150 million, although he could leave for half that price next summer due to a release clause in his Dortmund deal.
The Norwegian recently indicated that he would remain at Signal Iduna Park during this current summer’s transfer window, but Chelsea is refusing to give up their quest for the young striker.
