Nuri Sahin has tipped Erling Haaland to reach the levels of Bayern Munich icon Robert Lewandowski.
Haaland is one of the most talked about players in world football right now after becoming a dominant source of goals over at Dortmund, but there has been alot of speculation that clubs are circling for his services.
And amid the speculation, Sahin, who played alongside another great Dortmund striker in Lewandowski, watching in awe as the Poland star established himself as one of the world’s best, says the signs are that Haaland has what it takes to reach a similar kind of level in the future.
He said: “He can get there. But the thing is not to get there, but to stay there. This is what Lewandowski has done.
“Let’s speak about the last 10 years; there was [Luis] Suarez, [Sergio] Aguero, Harry Kane, Lewy and [Karim] Benzema, and they stayed at that level.
“Haaland can make it, for sure. He has huge potential, and what I heard from Dortmund is that he is training really well, that he’s very professional.
“That mentality is key. People at Dortmund say they never saw a guy as professional since Lewandowski. I don’t know Haaland, but I saw Lewy, and every day you could see in his eyes that this guy wants to win everything.
“If Haaland has that, then he can absolutely make it.”
Haaland is a player that we love very much and if we did manage to secure his services in the summer, he could help bring that Premier League title back to the Bridge
