Chelsea have already decided on their transfer alternative to Erling Haaland. The Borussia Dortmund superstar is highly sought after ahead of the summer with the Blues in competition with the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Manchester United for the striker’s signature.

Borussia Dortmund are valuing the youngster at about £150million, it might come down to who can afford the Norwegian, especially given the financial struggle due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, Chelsea may have as good a chance as anyone in affording Haaland, the number of the other clubs involved might increase the chances they miss out on their major target this summer and when such happens, the blues will have to resort to familiar ground with Calcio Mercato reporting Romelu Lukaku is the undoubted second choice for Chelsea.


The report claims Roman Abramovich and Chelsea are ready to take ‘concrete action’ on their former striker with a bid of more than €100million (£86m) this summer.


Lukaku spent three years at Stamford Bridge between 2011 and 2014 before he was sold to Everton for around £28million, a club-record fee for the Toffees at the time.
