Chelsea owner Roman Abrahamovic is a huge fan of Erling Haaland Alternative as Chelsea plan next move.

Chelsea  have been linked with several players already this transfer window but have yet to make a solid advance to sign anyone.

There are a few areas that Thomas Tuchel is looking to improve in, and one of those, in particular, is the striker position.

Erling Haaland is the primary target as reported by pretty much every reliable source out there right now, but he seems a tough nut to crack.

Chelsea recently made an opening offer with Tammy Abraham or Callum Hudson-Odoiacting as a final weight, but the offer has been rejected.

Dortmund have no plans to part ways with Haaland unless their €176 million valuations is met. Blues are unlikely to pay the staggering fee.

The talk then goes straight to Romelu Lukaku of Inter Milan, but even that seems tough.

According to Journalist Dean Jones, who was speaking on The Football Terrace Podcast yesterday, Roman Abramovich could help get that deal done if he wanted to.

Jones says that Abramovich is still ‘a huge admirer’ of Lukaku and he would be ‘perfectly happy’ to bring him back to Stamford Bridge this summer if they cannot sign Haaland.

“Abramovich is also a huge admirer of Lukaku, they’d be perfectly happy if Haaland wasn’t to come to sign Lukaku. That’s also going to be really difficult, I’m not saying that it’s going to be straightforward, said Jones.

“But that is on the back burner, it’s being worked on in the background.”

Lukaku spent three years of his career at Stamford Bridge between 2011 and 2014 but only made 15 first-team appearances, failing to score a single goal.

The Belgium international netted 64 goals and 16 assists in 95 matches for the Italian giants and helped the club to a first Serie A title in 11 years the last term.
