Transfer News: Chelsea preparing bumper offer for top target Erling Haaland

According to transfer news from Jan Aage Fjortoft (h/t Daily Mail), Chelsea are preparing a huge offer for Erling Haaland as they get ready to test Borussia Dortmund’s resolve.

One of the best strikers in the game currently, Haaland has taken the world by storm since signing for Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window last year. To date, the 20-year-old Norwegian has produced a stunning tally of 57 goals from 59 games for the Black and Yellows.

Last season, Haaland plundered 41 goals in 41 games, helping Dortmund to a top-four finish in Bundesliga and the DFB Pokal triumph. His goalscoring exploits have put him on the radars of several top clubs this summer, none more so than Chelsea. (h/t Daily Mail)

The Blues are in the market for a new centre-forward as Olivier Giroud nears an exit from Stamford Bridge while Tammy Abraham finds himself out of favour under manager Thomas Tuchel. With Timo Werner not providing the kind of output expected of him in front of goal, adding a prolific scorer like Haaland would take the team to the next level. (h/t Daily Mail)

And, now Fjortoft has claimed that Chelsea are preparing a huge offer for Haaland. He further adds that, Dortmund despite their stance of him not being for sale, will not be able to turn down an offer of around £150m (€175m).

As iterated earlier, adding a top striker like Haaland would help Chelsea elevate their game as they look to defend the UEFA Champions League crown while challenging for the Premier League. Whether they are prepared to go as high as the figure mentioned remains to be seen now.
