Chelsea eyeing player-plus-cash Haaland bid

Chelsea ready to sacrifice two names in player-plus-cash bid for Dortmund's Haaland

July 15, 2021 By Ali M.
The Blues are willing to send one of two players to the Signal Iduna Park, plus tons of cash, in exchange for the Norwegian superstar.

Chelsea's interest in Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland is no kept secret, with the Premier League giants now reportedly set to go all out for the highly-rated attacker. This is according to a Sky Germany report claiming that the Blues are ready to offer one of two players, on top of cash, for the goalscoring machine.

Despite winning the UEFA Champions League last season and finishing in the Premier League top four, the London giants are keen on spending big once again to bolster their squad. Having witnessed Timo Werner's struggles in front of goal first hand, Thomas Tuchel is adamant on bringing a deadly striker who can lead them to the English top-flight title, and have thus set their sign on the aforementioned Norwegian talent.

Having scored 57 goals in 59 appearances for BVB, it's not hard to see why Chelsea are dead set on Haaland. The 20-year-old is the hottest player in world football, alongside Kylian Mbappe, hence Tuchel's interest.

The Daily Mirror claim that the Premier League outfit are ready to table a $207M offer, which would make him the second-most expensive player behind Neymar only. Sky Germany add that the Blues are ready to offer either Tammy Abraham or Callum Hudson-Odoi in any deal. The first could be a direct replacement for Haaland while the latter could slot in the vacancy left by Jadon Sancho's departure to Man United.

Unfortunately, Sky added that Erling's Bundesliga employers were quick to rebuff that arrangement as they are not interested in being lured into an offer for their star striker. The Signal Iduna Park executives have been firm in stating that the 20-year-old is not for sale, with the player himself recently tweeting "Ready for the journey" upon arriving for pre-season duty.

It remains to be seen whether the Champions League holders can get this deal done. Lukaku and Lewandowski have also been linked with Stamford Bridge, but their priority looks to be Haaland. Just like the Man Utd and Sancho situation, Abramovich's side might have to wait a further year to land their Dortmund target.
