Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Chelsea are interested in Earling Haaland and there is a possibility of deploying him and Lukaku in the final third of the pitch.
We talked about Erling Haaland a couple of times, including during the transfer window. But then it seemed absolutely unrealistic and not at all feasible,
” Tuchel told SportBild.
“We talk about him regularly, of course, because he’s a fantastic player and clearly the defining figure at Dortmund, who is a big rival for us in the Champions League.”
Chelsea eventually signed
in the summer, but Tuchel did not rule out the possibility of Haaland being added to the squad.
He added: “
You mean two at the top [with] Lukaku and Haaland? We can talk about it
“I don’t think we’ve been really serious about it yet, but let’s see what will happen in the next few weeks."
Haaland has been linked with almost every major European club at least once, but the current coach Marco Rose is optimistic that the Norwegian star will continue to work at Dortmund.
Just because the public is constantly talking about him leaving BVB next summer, that doesn't necessarily have to be the case,"
Rose said in August.
"In the end, Erling has to decide for himself where he sees his future. In any case, we are happy that he is currently playing for us - and, who knows, possibly it'll be even more than just one season if we write an extraordinary story here."
