Dortmund striker, Erling Haaland transfer to Chelsea is more likely to happen than to any other side according to Arsenal star midfielder
The Borussia Dortmund star striker is a major name on most clubs’ want list including Man United, Barcelona and Real Madrid among others.
But Chelsea are more keen to materialize a move for the 39-goal in 41 games scorer striker as Paul Merson states the Blues are in more need for the Norwegian’s masterclass service than any other.
Although Manchester city are also considered major competitor as the side are looking for a long term replacement for Sergio Aguero, it’s still more probable Haaland would be heading to Stamford Bridge.
“Of all the teams who are in for Erling Haaland, Chelsea are the ones who need him most,” Merson told via in Daily Star as he hints on Haaland transfer to Chelsea more likely to come.
“They have always been successful with someone who has a presence up front and Haaland has that. He’s going to score bundles wherever he goes.
“And if you buy him this summer, you still have the prospect of being able to sell him for a profit later down the line because of his age. I’m not sure he’s such a good fit for Manchester City, where he probably wouldn’t play as much.
“But for whoever gets him, it will be worth it. He puts up numbers and he keeps on doing it. Whoever signs him will have a chance of winning the league.”
With Man United manager, Ole Solskjaer still keen on chasing after his former striker, we will see over the coming months if Haaland transfer to Chelsea come to reality.
