Chelsea have been tipped to be very busy in the summer transfer window.
One name that constantly pops up in the Blues rumour mill is that of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland who has also been linked with Manchester United and Real Madrid.
The 20-year-old’s release clause of €75m (£64m) does not kick in until next summer, but it would appear that Dortmund could be ready to take advantage of growing interest in the striker.
According to ESPN FC, a monstrous €180million (£150m) bid will be enough to tempt the Bundesliga side into selling Haaland in the next transfer window.
With 33 goals in just 31 appearances across all competitions this season – including 10 in the Champions League – the Norway international will improve any side in the world?
But will Chelsea make a move?
Well, the Telegraph reported over the weekend that there’s a growing belief that the Haaland will not be available this summer.
As a result, the same publication claim that the Blues are willing to spend big money to bring Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge as an alternative to the Dortmund ace.
However, some Chelsea fans think Marina Granovskaia‘s next transfer mission should not be either player.
Amid reports, via @theutdjournal on Twitter, Man United are not expected to renew their interest Jadon Sancho after missing out on a deal last summer or go in for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice.
This prompted a debate amongst some Blues supporters on Reddit as to which player they would like to see join their club in the summer.
Judging by the responses, it is clear that fans would be excited to see Sancho or Rice arrive in west London this summer.

soccerislife10zMount said: “If we have the chance to go for Sancho and we don’t go for it, we’re going to regret it big time. He has all the skill in the world to be one of the best (post-Messi era), just needs a better coach to make him evolve more.”
The summer transfer window is just around the corner.
And the rumour mill is already starting to pick up speed.
New Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel will surely be looking to strengthen the squad he was given when he took over from Frank Lampard and there have already been a number of top players linked with a move, including Erling Haaland.
The striker is thought to be the Blues’ number on transfer priority.

Mezza_cfc said: “Rice only. We don’t need Sancho unless we sell an attacker.”
GrogRhodes said: “I’d be all about Rice. You sell one of our specialists and you replace them with a more complete player.”
