Chelsea prepared with their first bid for teen sensation Erling Haaland
Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland is the hot shot of the summer transfer window 2021
The transfer of Jadon Sancho to Manchester United left the transfer market to another Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland for more action. The giants of West London Chelsea is the expected target of the Norwegian attacker.
There are a number of clubs that would like to sign Erling Haaland. The player is the best in his segment and well protected on the attack front. But the player’s market value makes them financially “untouchable” for teams in the midst of the pandemic.
Though Chelsea are ready for the player with their first bid, including a £ 50million star as a swap. Erling Haaland’s transfer fee surpasses the £ 150 million mark and that is not possible for the Blues at this point. (Express)
A swap deal, including a quality striker, will act accordingly in the situation for Chelsea. English striker Tammy Abraham is the player included in the deal. He has fallen out of favor with Thomas Tuchel’s strategy.
The Blues reportedly valued Abraham at £ 50 million. Aston Villa and West Ham United have been keeping an eye on the 23-year-old, according to sources. However, Chelsea find a way to swap with the player as he can find more game minutes in the Bundesliga.
Meanwhile, last year’s recruits are solidifying their position on Chelsea’s line of scrimmage. Timo Werner and Kai Havertz showed an impressive performance under the German head coach last season. The future of Hakim Ziyech is still a topic of discussion in the summer transfer window.
“Only Erling Haaland”
The 20-year-old Haaland is seen by football experts as the “GOAT” of the next generation. He got exceptional numbers in his season profile. Haaland has scored 57 goals in just 59 games for Dortmund in all competitions, which is more than enough for a big newcomer.
Together with Chelsea, Europe’s elite teams are chasing the player this summer. Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City have all been attributed an interest in the Norwegian international but Chelsea appear to be the front runner in the race for his signature.
Meanwhile, the reports from Germany wave against the optimism of Chelsea. According to Dortmund boss Hans-Joachim Watzke, the Norwegian is not thinking about a deal this summer. “I have the clear expectation that Erling Haaland will play for us next year,” he said.
Thomas Tuchel is concentrating on the Premier League title in the coming season. And he is expected to add more talent to the roster after finishing last season in style. In his first season in England he won the Champions League. He is now ready for more challenges in England.
Chelsea are also performing a balancing act. Experienced striker Olivier Giroud will move to AC Milan. In addition, some other players are planning to leave Stamford Bridge in search of more minutes of play. In any case, the pursuit of Erling Haaland is still a difficult task for the European champion.
