Chelsea consider Southampton's Danny Ings as Erling Braut Haaland alternative?

Chelsea may reportedly consider Southampton's Danny Ings - out of contract in 2022 - as an ideal alternative to Borussia Dortmund's Erling Braut Haaland.

Chelsea could reportedly turn their attention to Southampton's Danny Ings as an alternative to Borussia Dortmund's Erling Braut Haaland.

Haaland's next career move continues to be the subject of much debate after his brace in the Champions League against Sevilla, with Real Madrid and Manchester City both heavily linked with a swoop.

The Norway international could be available for £66m in 2022 due to a release clause in his contract, but with the prospect of a bidding war for his services taking place this summer, Chelsea have supposedly lined up another frontman to add to their ranks.

According to football.london, Thomas Tuchel's search for a new striker could lead the Blues to consider Southampton's star man Ings, whose future is also up in the air.

Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has remained optimistic that Ings will extend his stay at St Mary's beyond 2022, but the prospect of playing Champions League football with Chelsea could tempt the 28-year-old - also linked with Man City - into a move to the capital.

Despite suffering from his fair share of injury woes this term, Ings has struck eight times and provided three assists in 18 Premier League appearances.
