Joe Cole: Signing Haaland could get Chelsea back to title-winning ways

Sun 14 March 2021 | 9:09

Former Blues winger believes Chelsea would be able to challenge for the Premier League title if they sign the Norwegian star.

After a series of awful results which saw


slip to ninth place on the league table, Frank Lampard was sacked at the end of January. As Lampard’s replacement,

Thomas Tuchel

has managed to improve the Blues’ results and they currently sit fourth in the Premier League. However, Chelsea are still lacking firepower in the final third, as their 0-0 draw against

Leeds United

on Saturday showed once again. Former Chelsea winger

Joe Cole


Erling Haaland

can be a crucial addition to Tuchel’s squad.

“They need one player for me, Haaland. He’s on the wish-list.” 

Cole told

BT Sport


"He’s a No 9. There’s so much in this squad, there’s quality in all areas, such a strong squad.

“You just need that one sparkle of magic, that No 9, that focal point and it will change this club getting back to the glory days of challenging for the title regularly.”

Chelsea will play the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie against

Atletico Madrid

on Wednesday.
