Chelsea join Dortmund in scouting Erling Haaland as Man United fall short

Chelsea are listed among the top flight team lining up transfer deals for Salzburg super scorer, Erling Haaland.

According to reports, Chelsea hope to see their transfer ban lifted as they are already lining up deals for the coming transfer window.

Erling Haaland at the other hand has been a major scorer this season both in the local league games and Champions league, netting 27 goals in 19 appearances across all competitions.

With several other top flight teams already scouting the player, Manchester United are also among the favorites to have the 19-year-old kid.

Chelsea is currently praised under Frank Lampard for their taste and preference of young starlets over aged players and would provide a more suitable ground for Erling to get more play time as he would as well bring Tammy Abraham proper competition.

Olivier Giroud is expected to leave Stamford Bridge by the coming transfer window and that creates the vacuum Lampard would want to fill if the transfer ban is lifted.

But if the Blues are so unfortunate and go on with their ban, then Lampard is probably going to switch to his plan B of making Christian Pulisic a false 9 as he has earlier revealed.

The little knock suffered by Abraham that had him miss West Ham was really felt across the pitch as the Blues failed to net goal and in turn conceived.

Frank clearly does not want such event to reoccur and that is probably why he already has his plans mapped out.

Another team on the hunt for the striker, is Borussia Dortmund as they look to take advantage of the low buy-out clause prior to its increment.
