Chelsea are desperate to improve their attacking options this summer, and they are plotting a mega-money offer for the Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

According to Daily Express, the Premier League side could submit a bid for the 20-year-old Norwegian striker that would shatter the British transfer record. The Blues could offer around £135 million for the young striker.

The report further states that agreeing on personal terms with the striker will not be a problem for Chelsea, and the Blues have already held lengthy talks with the striker’s agent Mino Raiola.

The player is reportedly keen on a move to London this summer as well.

Haaland is undoubtedly one of the most exciting talents in world football, and he has the potential to develop into a superstar in the future. The Norwegian is already one of the best strikers on the planet, and he managed to score 41 goals across all competitions last season.

There is no doubt that the Borussia Dortmund star would be a massive upgrade on the likes of Timo Werner, who has failed to impress last season.

Thomas Tuchel guided the Blues to the Champions League title last year, and he will be hoping to launch an assault for the Premier League crown next year.

Chelsea have a formidable squad at their disposal, but they are missing a quality finisher upfront, and Erling Haaland could be the missing piece of the puzzle for them.

Borussia Dortmund have been adamant that the striker will not be sold this summer but the reported £135 million bid could alter their stance.

It is a massive amount of money, and it wouldn’t be surprising if the German club are tempted to cash in on the player if the offer is tabled.
