Liverpool close in on possible deal after Dortmund Chief issues big Haaland transfer message

Sebastian Kehl has admitted Borussia Dortmund may reach a point where they are powerless to keep hold of Liverpool target Erling Haaland in the summer transfer window.

Haaland is a player that has been in the headlines alot of the past few weeks, with all the games biggest clubs now looking to pay his £100 million asking price in the summer to possibly get a deal done.

It is no secret that Liverpool will be in the market for a new striker in the summer, because despite all their quality in attack, they do not have a striker that is able to score 30-goals a season like Haaland can.


Kehl, Dortmund’s head of first-team football has said positive talks have taken place with the player’s agent – with their intention being to keep the forward at the club.

“Our position is clear: we are planning with Erling,” Kehl said. “We are very relaxed about that.

“Of course, we have been following the situation. But we had a very, very good talk with Mino and his (Haaland’s) father just recently.”

The concern for Dortmund is Haaland has a reported buy-out clause of €75 million (£64m / $88m) that becomes active in 2022, and any club who bids that figure would take BVB out of the picture.

But When asked if Haaland has asked Dortmund to let him leave, Kehl replied: “I don’t want to go into those talks now. From a certain point on, we may no longer be able to influence what the future will bring.”


Haaland is destined for the big time and although Dortmund are a big club, they do not have the same power that the likes of Liverpool do in the game, so we will be keeping a very close eye to see just what happens with the young man

He would really be a great signing for the Reds that is for sure
