Chelsea are believed to be in chase of the Dortmund striker as we look at how the English side could line up when Haaland arrives

Chelsea are closing in on a deal to land Norwegian striker, Erling Haaland after seeing Timo Werner struggle to perform since his arrival from Leipzig.

Adding Haaland to the front line option has been considered golden at Stamford after seeing the 20-year-old net 35 goals in 35 appearances for BVB.

We look at the 3 possible ways Frank Lampard could structure his squad should he succeed in landing Haaland.

Frank Lampard could still maintain his 4-1-4-1 formation but this time push Werner back to the left wing and now Havertz to the right wing.

Lately, Kai Havertz former manager has stated having Hakim Ziyech and Kai Havertz on the right side at same time limits space Havertz gets to perform.

Lampard could decide to switch both men, Ziyech taking on when Havertz is not fit and also the other way round.

This would leave Timo and Pulisic to the other wing, while Hudson-Odoi also joins in.

Having considered in one of our previous contents on how dangerous the 4-1-4-1 formation has been to Chelsea defensively, we could be seeing little adjustments in the coming weeks.

Lampard could decide to pull one midfielder back to the defensive role, leaving 3 at the front as that would now require a number 10.

Either Timo or Havertz could take up this role as Kai Havertz has in the past shown great prospects in this role.

Werner is a hard worker and won’t be bad idea to try him in the number 10 role.

Chelsea could still look back at the 4-4-2 (Diamond) as that would make their striking more deadly.

Having a Timo Werner and Erling Haaland combo in the enemies box would possibly create that needed tension.

Kai Havertz would then star as the CAM while Ziyech goes wild right.
