And despite their good run of form, it is believed that Chelsea are keen on improving their attacking options under manager Thomas Tuchel and have been linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

The 21-year-old Norway International, who joined Borussia Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg in 2020 has been an important member of the first-team squad since he made the move.

The young centre-forward enjoyed a superb 2020/2021 season where he scored 41 goals and provided 12 assists in 41 appearances for Borussia Dortmund.

Erling Haaland has also enjoyed a flying start to the 2021/2022 season so far and has scored 13 goals and created four assists in 10 appearances.

His excellent performances in front of goal is said to have caught the attention of Chelsea and according to reports from The Sun, Chelsea have been told to pay the sum of £295million to sign him.

The reports further claimed that the Blues have now been emplored to pay such staggering amount which will cover his transfer fee and wages at the club.

That said, it remains to be seen if Chelsea will be interesting in paying such enormous amount to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund when the transfer window opens.
