Chelsea’s fresh transfer blow now helpful in Erling Haaland race

Published

on

Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel is keen on a world class striker and has been making moves with some of the world class players, even though it has been very difficult a task.

Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund is the major target but the deal seems very difficult and expensive. The Blues turned their attention to Rolelu Lukaku but Inter Milan remains a home for the Belgium international.

Chelsea have been told that they cannot sign another target they have turned to, Robert Lewandowski in the summer transfer window.

The Poland striker was the Bundesliga’s top scorer last season for the fourth campaign in a row, scoring an incredible 41 goals.

However, Bayern president Herbert Hainer has insisted Lewandowski is going nowhere – and in the long run that could boost Chelsea’s pursuit of Haaland.

“In my opinion Lewandowski is the best striker in the world,” Hainer told Spox.

“We are very happy to have him on our team. His contract runs for another two years, during which time he will definitely play for FC Bayern.

“I said it some time ago that I can very well imagine having him in the squad as well. He will definitely stay with us for the next two seasons.”

Asked about the chance of signing Haaland as possible successor for Lewandowski, Hainer replied: “At the moment we’re not looking for a successor, as Robert will definitely play for us for another two years.

“Then we can deal with a successor.”

However, it’s good news for Chelsea’s pursuit of Erling Haaland as Thomas Tuchel targets a world-class striker to turn his side into Premier League champions. They could give it the push that could force Borussia Dortmund into doing some business.

Speaking on the Here We Go Podcast, Romano said, “At the moment from Borussia Dortmund sources, the answer is ‘we have not received any bid for Erling Haaland from Chelsea, nothing’. So, the situation is still quiet.

“Knowing the style of Borussia Dortmund, they are not selling the player in the last week of the window so forget about it. If Chelsea have to move it’s now or in some days or in some weeks. Not at the end of the window…Borussia Dortmund are really convinced that the player is staying.”

Romelu Lukaku

Former prolific midfielder, Joe Cole, has revealed that in Romelu Lukaku, The blues now have a “killer” in their squad who will score more goal.

Romelu Lukaku scored the only goal as Chelsea began their Champions League campaign with a slim 1-0 victory over Zenit St Petersburg on Tuesday.

That was Romelu Lukaku fourth goal in four matches since returning to Stamford Bridge in a £98million deal from Inter Milan this summer.

Joe Cole has accepted the fact that Romelu Lukaku was not at his best against Zenit, but said his powerful nature makes him the perfect man to lead the team under Thomas Tuchel.

“I’m going to throw this out there, I think he’ll be top scorer in the Champions League this season.

“Lukaku didn’t even have one of his better games, he was a little bit scruffy but he’s a finisher now, a killer. Once that ball was delivered there was only going to be one winner, he’s a great finisher,” Cole said on BT Sport.

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

Tammy Abraham ‘fits the bill’ as an Arsenal signing, says Winterburn

With Arsenal interested in the signature of Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham, they have been told by their hero, Nigel Winterburn that the England international fits the profile of a potential signing for the club.

Tammy Abraham looks set to leave Chelsea this summer as the Blues continue their pursuit of Erling Haaland. He is also out of favour at the club with lack of playing time. He earned 22 Premier League appearances last term, scoring six goals which is not enough for him.

Reacting to the news, Winterburn said (via Goal): “He certainly would fit the bill of recent Arsenal signings, young with a point to prove.

“People will question his consistency but what you want is for these young players to get a run in the team.

“Is he going to get a run in a team if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is playing well? Probably not unless Aubameyang can be switched to the left-hand side – although you then need to leave out either Nicolas Pepe or Bukayo Saka.

“With Abraham, there’s potential there and development for a young, young player. So, I think it’s an option [for] Arsenal, although with Alexandre Lacazette being linked with a move away, it could be just a name that has been thrown into a hat.”

He will replace French striker, Alexandre Lacazette who is also opened to leaving the Emirates Stadium for £15 million after scoring 17 goals in all competitions last season.

When asked about Lacazette, Winterburn continued: “Arsenal shouldn’t sell Lacazette unless they’ve got an upgrade in place. I wouldn’t let him go until we have secured another striker. I’ve said that all along.

“Lacazette is a different striker to anything Arsenal have at the club. When he’s in top form, he holds the ball up well, his link-up play is good.

“I suppose his strike rate is not the very, very best of what you want, but then we are not at the very, very top of the league either at the moment as well.

“So personally, at the moment, I don’t want to see him go, unless we’ve got someone coming in that’s going to excite me.

“I wouldn’t let him go and then we haven’t got anybody else to bring in. For me, that’s just way too risky.”

He’s been linked with a surprise move across London. Reports have suggested Arsenal are monitoring his situation and could make an offer if Chelsea decide to leave him leave.
