Erling Braut Haaland becomes the top target for Chelsea

Football Express

Multiple reports suggest Erling Braut Haaland has now become Chelsea’ top target. The Norwegian has attracted all the European Giants a year into his career at Westfalenstadion. 33 goals in 32 appearances in the Black and Yellow kit for Haaland now.

Haaland is represented by the Italian Super-Agent Mino Raiola. Which means his contract at Borussia Dortmund definitely has multiple clauses. One of these would allow him to leave BVB for a certain amount of money.

The 20-year-old striker joined Borussia Dortmund from RB Salzburg in the 2020 January transfer window. However, he was very close to joining Manchester United but the deal fell through in the final stages.

Other European Giants like Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are after the Norwegian as well. However, in the end, it all comes down to what Haaland and Mino Raiola want.


Chelsea have struggled in the past with their striker signings. Alvaro Morata, Gonzalo Higuain and newcomer Timo Werner all have struggled in front of the net.

Timo Werner has missed 8 big chances in the Premier League already. That coupled with Lampard’s compulsion of playing Werner on the left-wing has seriously crippled his ability. After starting the season off well, Werner’ confidence has seriously plummeted. And a new signing on the horizon won’t do him much good either.

Roman Abramovich doesn’t like his hard-earned money wasted. He has already spent $292 million in the Summer transfer window. Out of all these signings only Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell and Edouard Mendy have come good. Director of Football Marina Granovskaia needs to fix up her spending habits or she’ll be the next to get the boot.

Signing Haaland would solve all the issues Frank Lampard and Chelsea currently face. The pure clinicality that Haaland brings to the game will change Chelsea’ fate. According to Sky Italia, Lampard has asked club officials to prioritise a move for the 20-year-old at the end of the season.
