The race for Erling Haaland continues to heat up, with reports Borussia Dortmund are willing to release the wunderkind forward early. The 20-year-old Norway international has a £70m release clause in his contract that is set be activated in June 2022. However the Daily Star says the club would be willing to make Haaland available as early as the next transfer window albeit with a mammoth asking price of up to £150m (€173 million).

A SUMMARYBACKGROUND DATA ON HAALAND.

Name: Erling Braut Haaland 

Born: July 21, 2000.

Nationality: Norwegian

Goal for Dortmund: 43goals in 43games(since joining in January 2020)

Haaland – this season

Chelsea are among a wealth of clubs chasing Haaland, but their pursuit could come at the expense of current striker Tammy Abraham. The Metro, citing The Athletic, reports the 23-year-old forward is unwilling to enter contract talks with the Blues as long as they are chasing Haaland’s signature.

Super agent Mino Raiola has opened the door for Erling Haaland to move to Chelsea when speaking about the ability of his star client.

However, according to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato, Abramovich will make £260m available for transfers even if Chelsea miss out on the top four.

Below is a data representing the Blues performance so far in the Premier league this season.

DEFENSIVE POSITION

Bayern Munich centre back Niklas Sule has been the subject of initial contact by Chelsea, according to Todo Fichajes.

The 25-year-old will have just a year left to run on his contract when the window opens and, although talks are planned, he could be going for just £26m.

CENTRAL MIDFIELDER

Franck Kessie could also be brought in with the AC Milan midfielder reportedly considered in the deal to send Fikayo Tomori to the Italian club.

Like Sule, the Ivorian's contract expires in 2022 and that could open the door to a move after the Stamford Bridge side missed out on David Alaba.

GOAL KEEPING POSITION

And, between the posts, Tuchel is said to be considering dumping Lampard acquisition Edouard Mendy in favour of a new goalkeeper. It is anticipated that Tuchel could go in for the Reds goalkeeper, Alisson Becker.

HOW THE BLUES COULD LINE UP NEXT SEASON.


Haaland would become the Blues all time expensive player should he come to the Bridge next summer.
