Chelsea have reportedly joined the race to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Braut Haaland.
Despite a recent injury, the Norway international's prolific start to life at the Westfalenstadion has continued into the 2020-21 campaign, with Haaland boasting 17 goals in all competitions for Dortmund this term.
Manchester City have been strongly linked with a swoop for Haaland as Sergio Aguero runs down the final few months of his deal, but the Citizens are expected to face stiff competition for Haaland's signature.
Haaland's father - former Man City defender Alf Inge Haaland - has previously insisted that his son is happy at Dortmund, but 90 min reports that Chelsea are confident about their chances of securing the striker's signature in 2021.
The report claims that the Blues have already touched base with Haaland's entourage to register their interest, with Real Madrid and Barcelona - who have both been tipped to swoop for Haaland - expected to prioritise moves for Kylian Mbappe and Lautaro Martinez respectively.
Dortmund would supposedly demand a nine-figure sum for Haaland, who is tied down to the Bundesliga giants until the end of the 2023-24 campaign.
