Chelsea have identified the signing of a striker as the club’s priority this summer, and head coach Thomas Tuchel is understood to have Erling Haaland at the very top of his wishlist.
The Norwegian forward has proven to be one of the best strikers in Europe of recent and Chelsea may have moved a step closer to securing the services of the Borussia Dortmund man.
That is because, according to a report by the Telegraph, the Norway international is believed to be ‘interested’ in making the switch to Stamford Bridge and becoming the last piece in Thomas Tuchel’s jigsaw.
But not only that, the youngster’s recent action on social media shows that a deal must have been closer than ever to happening. Erling Haaland just recently followed Chelsea football club on Instagram, causing a stir among Blues fans as they anticipate an announcement as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, it is understood that Haaland could command a fee as high as £150m, but reports have it that Chelsea are working ‘intensely’ to try and bring the 20-year-old prodigy to Stamford Stamford.
At the moment, we cannot confirm that any agreement has been reached or that Chelsea have submitted a tangible offer. But at least we can say that talks and negotiations are ongoing. Plus the starlet following our club on Instagram gives our fans a sense of optimism that a deal can actually happen this summer!
