Chelsea Transfer News: Record Premier League transfer offer prepared for Erling Haaland
According to Football Insider, Chelsea prepare £ 130million bid for Borussia Dortmund Erling Haaland this summer.
What’s the latest news regarding transfers involving Erling Haaland?
Dean Jones recently claimed Haaland is now interested in a move to Chelsea and suggested the London side are working behind the scenes to secure the deal.
Speaking on The Football Terrace, Jones said: “Chelsea have done a lot of work behind the scenes and in Haaland’s case he’s interested in Chelsea which in itself is interesting because he wasn’t. a year ago, probably not. even a few months ago to be honest.
“He still thought he would join a status club afterwards and Chelsea didn’t quite match where he thought he needed to go.”
Now it looks like the Blues have moved closer to their efforts to sign Haaland as they prepare a massive bid for the Dortmund talisman.
Chelsea making an offer for Haaland?
Football Insider claim Chelsea are lining up a £ 130million offer for Haaland after the offer received the green light from Roman Abramovich.
Reports suggest the Blues have discussed several player and money offers for the 21-year-old, but are now ready to submit a direct sum of money for the superstar.

Where would this deal rank among the Premier League’s most expensive signings?
According to Transfermarkt, the Premier League’s most expensive arrival is Paul Pogba, who left Juventus for Manchester United at a whopping cost of £ 94.5million.
In fact, four of the five most expensive transfers are from the Red Devils, who recently added Jadon Sancho to the roster after signing him for £ 76.5million. Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk is only fifth after leaving Southampton for £ 76.2million.
If Dortmund accepts Chelsea’s £ 130million offer, Haaland would become the most expensive player in England’s top flight history, eclipsing Pogba’s current record for United.
Why do Chelsea need another striker?
According to recent 90-minute reports, Timo Werner is set to leave Chelsea this summer, just one year after completing his move to Stamford Bridge.
The striker struggled to get started after joining the Blues and only scored six Premier League goals last season. While his goalscoring record is not impressive, he made 35 league appearances last season, meaning his departure would certainly have an impact.
Tammy Abraham has also been linked with a move away suggesting that another addition to Chelsea’s forward line is almost essential.
Whether Haaland can be the solution to the Blues’ attacking problems remains to be seen, as the touted fees could make the deal rather complicated.
