The 20-year-old attacker player in high demand by many top European clubs. But as earlier reported by Sportelo Chelsea have made contact for a possible transfer this summer.

Football Transfer Journalist Fabrizio Romano has given an update on the Chelsea target.

Dortmund have ‘no intention’ of selling Haaland this summer but a ‘crazy bid’ could convince the German side to let the Norwegian leave ahead of his £68 million release clause becoming active next summer.

It is now ‘up to Roman Abramovich’ if he wants to give the blockbuster transfer the green light for Thomas Tuchel to land his prized forward to boost their Premier League title challenge next season.

It remains to be seen in the coming days if the deal will be sealed.
