Erling Haaland is reportedly interested in a move to Chelsea this summer. Chelsea are in the market for a striker following their Champions League success last month. Haaland is wanted by a host of top clubs in Europe following his stunning first full season at Borussia Dortmund.
Haaland scored 41 goals in as many games for Dortmund last term.
Dortmund are standing firm in their stance that the 20-year-old is not for sale this summer.
However, that has not put off Chelsea’s attempts to sign him yet.
The Telegraph claims Haaland would be open to a move to Stamford Bridge if the Blues can broker a deal with Dortmund.
The report says Haaland would also be prepared to wait until next summer.
Chelsea are exploring the option of signing Haaland when his release clause becomes active at the end of next season if they cannot secure him this summer.
Haaland could cost over £150million in the upcoming window.
However, he could be available for between £65m and £86m in 2022.
Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are the only three clubs who could afford to sign Haaland this summer.
Real Madrid are also keen but would not be able to do a deal until the release clause becomes active.
The Telegraph claims Chelsea are therefore looking at the possibility of jumping to the front of the queue and setting up a deal to agree to sign the forward at the end of next season.
It is not yet known if Chelsea would be Haaland’s preferred destination if United, City and Real all made approaches to Dortmund.
However, a move to west London is said to be appealing for the former Red Bull Salzburg star.
