£130 million rated striker is coming to the Premier League, Chelsea fans have been told
Chelsea target Erling Haaland will end up playing in the Premier League one day, says Norwegian journalist and former Premier League striker Jan Aage Fjortoft.
We all know that Tammy Abraham has been brilliant for us this season and is leading the line well, but Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi can be hit and miss, meaning that Lampard will need to delve into that transfer kitty and land a striker, a forward that can bang in goals on a weekly basis.
Haaland is one of Europe’s hottest properties having scored 29 goals in 27 games for RB Salzburg before moving to Borussia Dortmund in January and scoring 13 goals in 14 games.
And amid all the transfer speculation regarding the young man, Speaking on The Football Show, fellow Norwegian Fjortoft believes Haaland will “absolutely” play in the Premier League at one point, but he doesn’t see that happening in the short term and praised the 19-year-old’s development so far.
“What I’ve been impressed by Erling and the team around is they’ve chosen he places he can develop as a player.
“He went from Molde – where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was his manager, so you can imagine how hard it was for Manchester United not to get him when he moved to Dortmund! – to Red Bull Salzburg, a great arena for a young kid. And this time he went to Dortmund, which is a great place for him now.
“Do I think he will play in the Premier League in the future? Absolutely, I think he will go to the Premier League eventually, but where he will end up, I am not sure.
“It might take him some time; I think it went quicker than he had thought in Salzburg, with success in the Champions League, but he is in a good place now.
“I can’t see him moving in the short term, but in the long term yes, of course, he will end up in the Premier League, like all big players will eventually.”[the_ad id=”164″]
