Erling Haaland is one of the hottest properties in European football.
And Chelsea are in the market for his signature this summer.
The Blues are linked with making a move for the Norwegian hitman this summer, before a £68million release clause comes into effect in the summer of 2022.
Borussia Dortmund may be forced into negotiating a deal for the young striker this summer, to maximise the amount of money they can get from selling him.
And Chelsea are among a host of top clubs interested in signing him, with reports suggesting he is the Blues’ number one priority this summer.
If Marina Granovskaia can seal a deal for the prolific forward, how would he fit into Thomas Tuchel’s starting line-up? The answer, obviously, is pretty easily – you make room for the best players in the world!
Taking all the transfer rumours into consideration, it’s likely that Haaland wouldn’t be the only new face arriving at the club before the 2021/22 season starts.
The Blues need a new centre-back, with Thiago Silva not getting any younger and they could go back in for Atletico Madrid man Jose Gimenez this summer.
There are also links to Gianluigi Donnarumma whom Chelsea have reportedly opened talks with in regards to a free summer transfer.
Kai Havertz has not yet shown all that he is capable of, but he is sure to improve under Tuchel’s tutelage and if he does begin to shine, he could form a deadly front three with Timo Werner and Haaland.

The luxury of this dream line-up is the options Tuchel would have in reserve.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, N’Golo Kante, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech all fail to get into this line-up. Excellent options galore.
Chelsea XI: Donnarumma; Rudiger, Zouma, Gimenez; Chilwell, James, Jorginho, Mount; Havertz, Haaland, Werner.
