Blues to make 'fantasy offer' for Haaland

English Premier League

Chelsea are reportedly ready to make a "fantasy offer" for Borussia Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland. Here are nine other players the Blues are linked with.

Bundesliga transfer expert Jan Aage Fjortoft has claimed that the Blues are prepared to seriously test Dortmund's resolve with a huge bid as they look to secure the Norwegian attacker's signature ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

With the offer for the 21-year-old rumoured to be £135 million (R2.7 billion), the London club is aiming to secure the forward's services before his release clause dramatically decreases to €75 million (R1.3 billion) in 2022, according to CBS Sports.

It would make sense for the Bundesliga outfit to cash in on Haaland now for double the amount they would receive in 2022, but after agreeing to sell Jadon Sancho to Manchester United, new head coach Marco Rose could be left with a bit of a nightmare if the club loses two of its best players in quick succession. 

Haaland had an outstanding 2020/21 campaign, scoring 41 goals in 41 games across all competitions for BVB, while Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel reportedly wants a new goalscorer as neither Timo Werner nor Tammy Abraham have thrived under the German's tenure to date.
