Chelsea Transfer News: Thomas Tuchel wants two other strikers over Erling Haaland

According to transfer news from Express, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel would prefer two other strikers over Erling Haaland. The German manager would rather sign Kylian Mbappe or Romelu Lukaku instead of Haaland.

The Blues have shown tremendous interest in the player along with the rest of the elite European clubs, meaning that they will have to stump up heavy cash to land him.

The Norwegian is arguably the hottest prospect in the world right now and has impressed heavily at Borussia Dortmund. Europe’s biggest clubs are now circling around him over a summer deal.

He does have a release clause that gets activated in the summer of 2022 but a host of clubs want a deal this year itself, none more than Chelsea, who have a striker problem on their hands.

Timo Werner has struggled to find goals, Tammy Abraham cannot seem to get a game, and Giroud is on the wrong side of 30.

Chelsea are hence looking for a striker and Haaland is someone they want. However, manager Thomas Tuchel would actually prefer to sign either Lukaku or Mbappe instead.

The former Blues striker has been a revelation at Inter Milan, leading their title charge. Then there is the golden boy Mbappe who has been on a steep upward curve at such a young age.

There is a belief that Haaland could be too expensive even for Chelsea in this current economic situation. Hence, it would make sense if we went after someone else.
