Italian legend Vieri opens up and announces Chelsea target Haaland ‘will be the best ‘and ‘most expensive player’ in the game
Chelsea target Erling Haaland is the best striker in the world and will become the most expensive footballer of all time, believes Christian Vieri.
Now Look, Frank Lampard has one of the most exciting and dynamic sides in the Premier League and with the right signings in the summer, could become real contenders for that Premier League title next season, especially if they manage to land a new striker.
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.
Many fans will have their favourite on who the Blues should sign in the summer to improve this squad, but we believe that a £100 million move to sign up the Bundesliga sensation Haaland, would be a move worth making for us, but there has been a feeling that Dortmund do not want to sell their big man.
And Italian great Vieri, who knows a thing or two about scoring after hitting 259 goals in 525 career games for club and country, reckons the youngster could go for as much as £260million.
Speaking on Instagram Live with Corriere della Sera, the former striker said: “In a couple of years he will go to a great team for €200m, maybe €300m [£260m].
“Haaland is the strongest of all [strikers] and has done well to choose Borussia Dortmund, the best club to enhance his talents.”
