The Norwegian has since his move to Chelsea stalled with Dortmund demanding over €170m for his departure
Chelsea transfer target for the striking role has remained Erling Haaland even before they won the UEFA Champions League but the news was made public after the competition.
Blues are keen to land the ace goal scorer after seeing most of their chances wasted last season by a mis-firing Timo Werner.
It’s also unlikely academy graduate, Tammy Abraham will remain at the club by the end of the summer with Arsenal and West Ham United all linked to a possible loan deal.
More reason Chelsea have pushed to see Haaland’s deal completed as Giroud also left for AC Milan where he reunited with former Chelsea defender, Fikayo Tomori.

On the other hand, the former Salzburg striker, knows of Chelsea’s interest in his services as he had once refused to comment when asked if he will remain with BVB in the new season.
Unlike other players, Haaland knows playing in the Premier League will be more competitive than the Bundesliga, also having seen his right hand man, Sancho left for the same league.
Dortmund are keen on their decision not to lose two key players in one and possibly now trying to scare Chelsea with their huge tag demand.
And there is a Chelsea board not scared of a huge price as they have already been reported ready to test Dortmund’s stance with a €150m offer.
Having retuned to train with Dortmund for the pre-season preparations, Haaland was spotted asking a reporter if there is any update about him in the media.
After which he commented about his price tag, saying he doesn’t think he is worth the huge amount Dortmund have placed in the transfer market.
Chelsea have the chances of succeeding in their quest still, as Dortmund already signed a possible replacement for Erling Haaland.
