Ex-Blues star not surprised Chelsea interested in signing £130 million hitman

Get the Chelsea word out there!

Chelsea will “always look to be in the market for a striker”, says Tore Andre Flo, with rumours the Blues are keen on Erling Haaland.

Haaland has firmly established himself as one of the very best attackers in the game right now and his performances over the past 24 months has meant that he is now one of the most deadly forwards in the game.

Recent reports have claimed we would be open to the idea of bringing the hitman to the Premier League during the summer transfer window, and former Chelsea striker Tore Andre Flo is not surprised by the speculation, but says Frank Lampard has enough firepower at his disposal and could look to use Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner in tandem, The ex-Blues star, who hit 50 goals for the club, told Bookmakers.co.uk: “There are a lot of rumours and it’s hard to comment on them until they become more than just rumours. But a club like Chelsea will always look to be in the market for a striker.”

Flo, who was with Chelsea between 1997 and 2000, added on the potential for Lampard to use Werner and Abraham as a strike pairing: “I think they can work together.

“I don’t think they’ve quite found the right rhythm to maximise a partnership just yet, but I think they can do – there’s more to come.

“As a striker you need goals and finally Werner found the net again and hopefully that can instil confidence and he’ll continue to score.

“He’s more than capable of doing well in the league, it’s just about getting a few goals and getting that confidence up.”
