A report claims that Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland, previously linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona, is wanted by Chelsea.

Chelsea are reportedly considering a club-record move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland at the end of the season.

The Blues spent more than £120m on new recruits in 2020, a large amount of that going on Timo Werner to lead their line.

However, the Germany international has struggled in his first season at Stamford Bridge, scoring nine goals in 27 appearances in all competitions.

According to The Athletic, Chelsea may bring in a new striker ahead of 2021-22, with prolific Dortmund marksman Haaland top of their wishlist.

The 20-year-old is arguably the most sought-after youngster in world football after scoring 35 goals in 35 appearances for BVB since joining a year ago.

Chelsea will face competition from a number of other clubs, though, as Real Madrid, Barcelona and domestic rivals Manchester United are all said to be interested.

The West London outfit's current record transfer is Kai Havertz, who could cost up to £72m with add-ons included.
