Chelsea Fc told to break the bank to sign Dortmund Hotshot

Former Chelsea star Emmanuel Petit has urged the latest European champions to secure the services of Borussia Dortmund talisman Erling Braut Haaland.

The Norwegian sensation has many top European teams fighting over his signature after scoring 41 goals in 41 games for Dortmund last Bundesliga season.

The former Rb Salzburg forward will not be a cheap option for Thomas Tuchel’s side, who spent over £200m on transfers last summer after a two-window embargo, with the promising forward valued in excess of £120m.

However, Petit is keen for Thomas Tuchel to find a good top class finisher, and told Paddy Power: “I’ll make it simple. Olivier Giroud is on his way out of Chelsea, Tammy Abraham is probably leaving on loan, and Timo Werner is still struggling to score goals consistently and Kai Havertz is not a striker.

“Chelsea need a new striker and someone who scores lots of goals. Erling Haaland is the answer. He’s strong, powerful and young with a bright future in front of him.

” Haaland’s value is already very high, and connections with Tuchel increase his chance of joining Chelsea.

“Offensively, he could become the finisher that Chelsea really need. I can imagine his relationship with Mason Mount, Havertz, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech making him score lots of goals at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea need a top striker, it’s as simple as that.”

Haaland has arrived at Dortmund January 2020 and has gone on to found back of the net an impressive 57 times in 59 games for the club.
