Bundesliga expert Jan Aage Fjortoft has claimed that Erling Haaland is perfect for Chelsea.
Haaland is one of the most talked about players in world football and a player that we really want to sign this transfer window, but his massive £150 million price tag has been causing real issues.
However, it is still believed that the club are prepared to pay big money to get a deal done, while also paying him that £300,000-a-week wages that he reportedly wants.
The Blues should be able to raise at least half the funds they need to sign Erling Haaland by selling three first-team players, according to Bundesliga expert Jan Aage Fjortoft, and he has also claimed that the big man would be the perfect signing for the London giants
“I still think there is a chance that this could happen,” Fjortoft told ESPN FC.
“If you see it from the point of view of Chelsea, the management of Chelsea, because it’s not like you can always just give a call to [Roman] Abramovich and say ‘we need this money, we need this player’.
“If you have a look at them with Tammy Abraham, Hudson-Odoi, Ziyech – they will probably get, shall we say they will probably get half for Haaland in transfers fees from other clubs? Some desperate clubs at the end of the transfer period.
“So they have players to sell as well, so I think this could be a good business case for them and then we haven’t even started on how much they will be earning from being a Premier League contender and maybe winning the Premier League.
“So I think this is the perfect striker for them.”
