Riise hopes to see Haaland at Liverpool amid Man City links

Tue 05 October 2021 | 8:20

The Dortmund star has attracted interest from almost all of Europe’s top clubs, generating endless speculations around his next destination.

Since his £18m move to Borussia Dortmund in 2019,

Erling Haaland

has established himself as one of the best strikers of the game. The Norwegian goal machine has scored 68 goals in his 67 appearances for the Bundesliga club, constantly racing with Robert Lewandowski to win the German top-flight’s golden boot.

According to several sources, Haaland has a release clause in his contract which enables him to leave the club for a fee between €75-100m next summer. Former Liverpool and Norway defender John Arne Riise hopes to see the young star at Anfield.

"Obviously I would love to have him at Liverpool, because he’s an unbelievable player,"

Riise told Goal.com.

"He’s in great form, and I think he would suit [Jurgen] Klopp’s style of football. I also think he would love Liverpool as a club.

"But if City got him, wow! You talk about unbeatable teams, then that would be close!

"Whoever gets Haaland, whether it’s next season or whatever, is going to be an unbelievably strong team for many years to come.

"I don’t know if Liverpool have the chance to sign him, but if they do then please do, because that would be unbelievable for the club - or for any club that signs him!"

Riise believes Haaland’s potential move to the Premier League will be beneficial for Norwegian football.

"Norway has been lacking players in the Premier League in the last few years. Ten or 15 years ago, we had so many players, now there are very few and not many have made a good impression.

"I’m glad that [Martin] Odegaard is at Arsenal and looking good. Hopefully he will have a good season. But we need a few more players up there and challenging and really making a name for themselves, just so Norwegian football can get back to what it used to be, with players playing in top leagues.

"I hope Haaland comes to the Premier League. I hope he comes to Liverpool, obviously, but for Norwegian football it is important to get a player like that in the Premier League."

Having

renewed

the contracts of some of their key players in the past year, Liverpool are keen to continue their negotiations with Mohamed Salah to extend his stay at Anfield. The negotiations will affect the club’s potential move for Haaland as the Norwegian is expected to demand both a huge salary and a place in the starting lineup.
