Tuchel has told board he wants to bring £66 million goal machine to Chelsea
Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol has told Chelsea fans that Thomas Tuchel wants Erling Haaland at the Bridge.
Tuchel was brought to the club just a few days ago after owner Roman Abramovic went with his head and decided that he needed to get rid of club legend Frank Lampard, who failed to drive the club forward like many had hoped at the beginning of the season.
Tuchel has joined Chelsea at a time that not many transfers will take place, meaning that he will have to cope with the squad that he has at his disposal this season, but that has not meant he isnt looking towards the future.
Haaland is a player that has been linked many times with Chelsea over the past few seasons, especially as the man cannot stop scoring, and in the summer transfer window, the Blues will reportedly try and break the club record to get a deal done
Solhekol told Sky Sports: “I think in the summer Chelsea will be looking to sign a striker and another centre-back because we know that Olivier Giroud and Thiago Silva are not getting any younger.
“When it comes to a striker, l think their main target is going to be Erling Haaland at Borussia Dortmund.
“We know how good he has been since he moved there and he has a release clause of 75 million euros, but that release clause is in the summer of 2022.
“Because of the pandemic, most clubs will not have money to spend in the summer, but of course we saw last summer that as far as Chelsea are concerned, they view that as an opportunity.
Roman Abramovich is one of the richest men in the world, so Chelsea have the money to do the deal in the summer if they can convince Dortmund to sell and convince Haaland to come to Stamford Bridge.
