Chelsea is among the few top teams in Europe who are looking for the signature of Borussia Dortmund's striker Earling Haaland this summer with the aim of reinforcing their striking force. The Blues spend over $200M last summer to bring in new players at the Bridge. According to reports from football sources in Europe, Haaland was the first priority on Chelsea's transfer targets.
The Blues have received a major blow after the Norwegian removed them from a shortlist of teams that he may wish to transfer to incase he departs from Dortmund next summer. Among the teams that Haaland has shortlisted are Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Barcelona, Juventus, and Real Madrid.
The 20-year-old striker has scored 33 goals in 30 matches in both Borussia and his international team. According to Football.London, the 20-year-old has a release close of $60M. Borussia will therefore demand not less than 100 million pounds for them to let the super striker go.
This major blow will force Chelsea's coaching staff to go back to a drawing board and make an analysis on whom they will go for as far as Summer transfers are concerned.
