In the summer window so far, the Blues are yet to sign anyone. It is clear that Tuchel wants a world-class striker to help boost his side’s chances of winning the league.
With City expected to spend big and Manchester United already splashing the cash, it is vital that Chelsea follow their rivals in spending big.
Erling Haaland has caught the eye of many in recent years. It is no secret that Chelsea are heavily after the forward.
After watching the game against Arsenal, it is evident that a striker is needed. A player like Haaland will be the final piece of the puzzle for the club.
Chelsea’s summer transfer ‘dream’ remains Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, according to reports.
Haaland is Chelsea’s number one target this summer in the forward area, but his fee remains a stumbling block with a cost in excess of £150 million being touted. He has a £68 million release clause that becomes active next summer, however the competition will increase which sees this summer as the Blues’ best possible chance of acquiring the 21-year-old.
The Norwegian has scored 57 times in 59 appearances for Dortmund since arriving in January 2020, including 41 goals in 41 outings in all competitions during the 2020-21 campaign.
The 21-year-old is believed to be a £150m transfer target for Chelsea in the current market, but the Blues are likely to be frustrated in their pursuit of the centre-forward.
The 21-year-old has returned to the Bundesliga outfit for pre-season, but the speculation linking him with a switch to Chelsea won’t go away ahead of the August 31 deadline.
Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea want a new striker. Olivier Giroud has left, Tammy Abraham’s future looks bleak and the Blues won’t fancy heading into the campaign without a fully recognised number nine having seen Timo Werner utilised in the left-forward position since Tuchel’s arrival. Michy Batshuayi is also among the ranks, but what his future holds remains uncertain.
