will chelsea sign erling haaland?

Borussia Dortmund star Erling Braut Haaland will not be leaving in the January window, amid interest from Chelsea.

Despite spending some serious money improving the attack over the summer transfer window, Frank Lampard is still reportedly looking to bolster an attack that has failed to impress like many had hoped this season.

Dortmund won the race to sign Haaland from Salzburg last January and he has made a stellar start to his career at Signal Iduna Park, scoring 33 goals in 32 games in all competitions for the club.

However, there has been alot of speculation in the media that Chelsea are one of a number of clubs that believe Haaland would be the dream signing to make, despite the fact that they already have Timo Werner, Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham

Rumours have surfaced suggesting the Blues will try and sign the star striker in January but that is extremely unlikely, as reports have suggested that Dortmund would almost definitely never agree to let such an important player leave in the middle of the season

And the report also claims club director Marina Granovskaia is keen on only one transfer in the January transfer window with Declan Rice posing as a priority.

However, the summer could be a different story, as German legend Lothar Matthaus claims his stay at Dortmund is fated to be a short one.

“Erling Haaland is a win not just for Dortmund but for the entire Bundesliga,” Matthaus explained to the Bundesliga’s official website.

“At the age of 20, he is a machine. He is a flying striker. He brings a positive energy in the team while also scoring goals. He is irreplaceable.

“Erling Haaland is regarded at Dortmund like Robert Lewandowski is at Bayern: the player up front who is not only responsible for the goals but in charge of dragging the team with him. He is a leader at the age of 20.

“That says a lot and on top of that, he knows what he needs to do. He works defensively as well, something I really enjoy seeing Robert Lewandowski do as well. He is not one to just stay forward. His mannerisms as well, for a 20-year-old, to not only think of himself but of his team.

“This positivity that he radiates, radiates on the team which is why I think that someday, Haaland will not be playing at Dortmund anymore and will make the next step. He is already ready and we are proud to have him in the Bundesliga.

“Dortmund need to be pleased to have gotten him because he is a striker that fits to a club with such emotions.”
