Back to business. EUROS campaign have ended and transfer market getting busier. Clubs are buying and some are selling. Chelsea are about breaking bank to make club’s record transfer.
- Chelsea are set to make a ‘big offer’ for Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland
- Jan Aage Fjortoft says Dortmund ‘won’t say no’ to offer of €175m for the striker
- Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is eager to strengthen his team’s attacking options
Chelsea could convince Borussia Dortmund to sell Erling Braut Haaland if they make a club-record bid of around €175 million, former Norwegian star Jan Aage Fjortoft claims.
Despite Dortmund’s insistence that they will keep the Norway international, Haaland’s compatriot Jan Aage Fjortoft believes that the Bundesliga side ‘won’t say no’ to a bid of £150m (€175m).
After guiding Chelsea to Champions League glory, Thomas Tuchel is determined to strengthen his team’s attacking options.
Dortmund are adamant that Haaland won’t be sold during the ongoing transfer window, particularly after the big-money departure of Jadon Sancho to Manchester United.
Chelsea are still planning a ‘big offer’ for the 20-year-old, and it is reported that a bid in the region of €175m could change the transfer stance of the German club.
However, Fjortoft, who previously played for Norway and now works in the media, wrote on Twitter: ‘Re: Haaland
‘I understand Chelsea are preparing a “BIG offer” to check out and challenge Dortmund’s “he will stay here next season”.
‘The understanding is that Dortmund won’t say no to 175 million euro.’
Haaland has made a sensational impact at Dortmund since he joined the club from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020.
In total Haaland has scored 57 goals in 59 games, while he helped Dortmund to win the DFB-Pokal last season.
The 20-year-old has three years remaining on his contract at Dortmund but could end up leaving before the transfer window closes at the end of next month.
If Chelsea were to bring in Haaland it would provide the Blues with an extra dimension in attack as they look to build on their Champions League success.
