Why Erling Haaland move to Chelsea not close



English Premier League outfit Chelsea FC are keen on the signature of Erling Haaland from German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund as he is regarded as the “perfect” striker signing this summer.

Manager Thomas Tuchel is desperate to strengthen his attacking options ahead of his first full season in charge at Stamford Bridge and has identified the 20-year-old Norway international as the best fit.

The former PSG boss joined the Blues just last season and led to a Champions League win. Now he wants to deliver the English Premier League title.

However, the Blues might not be close as expected to the deal as they have not yet tabled an official bid for the Borussia Dortmund star, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

While a bid is expected to be submitted to Borussia Dortmund this summer, Italian reporter Romano has now delivered an update on the Blues’ apparent interest on bringing him to Stamford Bridge.

Speaking on the Here We Go podcast, Romano said: “Haaland will continue to fight for Dortmund until his last day at the club.

“Talking about Chelsea, we know they have an interest. It’s normal they have an interest in Haaland. They see him as the perfect striker.

“They know signing [Inter Milan’s Romelu] Lukaku is impossible this summer.

“They want to try for Haaland but as I always say, Dortmund are still in the same position. They want to keep Haaland.

“It will take something crazy from Chelsea. There is still no official bid. Dortmund are convinced Haaland will stay.”

The striker who scored 27 goals and made six assists in 28 Bundesliga games for the German club and also netted 10 times in the Champions League is also understood to be keen on a move to England this season.

It is understood that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is interested landing Erling Haaland and will give his support to Thomas Tuchel with 150 million euros.

There are suggestions that Borussia Dortmund will be lured into accepting a fee that is quite attractive.


Chelsea player that is “a killer” revealed



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.

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.
