Haaland wanted by Chelsea

Chelsea are reportedly planning to offload out-of-favour players in the summer in order to fund a move for Erling Braut Haaland.

Haaland has a £68m release clause on his Borussia Dortmund contract, but does not become active until June 2022.

Still, he has been linked with a possible summer exit and reports claim that Dortmund could be convinced to sell him for £100m.

Manchester City and Real Madrid have been heavily associated with the striker, but Football.London claims that the Blues are also keen.

The west London outfit don't have the funds at the moment and they are prepared to offload some of the deadwood to afford Haaland.

The likes of Kepa Arrizabalaga, Andreas Christensen and Fikayo Tomori (on loan at AC Milan with buy option) could be shown the exit door.

Haaland only joined Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg last summer, but has already bagged 39 goals and nine assists from 41 appearances.

He has more than three years left on his Dortmund deal, but is expected to leave them prior to the expiry of the contract.
