The Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland is the hotshot of the summer transfer window of 2021
The transfer of Jadon Sancho to Manchester United left the transfer market to another Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland for more action. The West London giants Chelsea is the expected destination for the Norwegian attacker.
There are a bunch of clubs that wish to sign Erling Haaland. The player is the finest of his segment and well guaranteed in the attacking front. But, the market value of the player makes him the ‘untouchable’ for teams in terms of finance in the midst of the pandemic.
Although Chelsea are ready with their first bid for the player, including a £50m-rated star as a swap deal. The transfer fee of Erling Haaland crosses the £150 million mark and that is not possible for the Blues at this stage. (Express)
A swap deal, including a quality striker, will act accordingly in the situation for Chelsea. The English striker Tammy Abraham is the player included in the deal. He is out of favor with the strategy of Thomas Tuchel.
The Blues reportedly value Abraham at £50m. According to sources, Aston Villa and West Ham United have been keeping tabs on the 23-year-old. But, Chelsea are finding a possibility of swap with the player as he can find more playing minutes in Bundesliga.
Meanwhile, last year recruits are cementing their position in the attacking line of Chelsea. Timo Werner and Kai Havertz got an impressive display last season under the German head coach. The future of Hakim Ziyech is still a discussion topic in the summer transfer window.
‘Only Erling Haaland’
The 20-year-old, Haaland, is considered as the next generation ‘GOAT’ by football pundits. He got extraordinary numbers in his season profile. Haaland has scored 57 goals in just 59 appearances for Dortmund in all competitions, which is more than enough for a big signing.
Along with Chelsea, the elite sides of Europe are chasing the player this summer. Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Manchester City have all been credited with an interest in the Norway international, but Chelsea appear to be the frontrunner in the race for his signature.
Meanwhile, the reports from Germany are waving against the optimism of Chelsea. According to Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke, the Norwegian is not considering a deal this summer. “I have the clear expectation that Erling Haaland will play for us next year,” he said.
Thomas Tuchel is focussing on the Premier League title next season. And he is expected to add more talents to the squad after completing last season in style. He won the Champions League in his very first season in England. He is now ready for more challenges in England.
Also, Chelsea are performing a balancing act. The veteran striker Olivier Giroud is set to join AC Milan. Also, a few other players are planning to take an exit from Stamford Bridge in search of more playing minutes. Anyway, the pursuit of Erling Haaland is still a tough task for the European champions.
