Red Bull Salzburg have a wonderkid in their ranks, a 19-year-old striker that has scored a staggering 23 times in all competitions this season. Liverpool target Erling Håland has ambitions of playing in the Premier League according to his father.
Alf-Inge Håland played in England as a midfielder throughout the 1990s and early 2000s. The Norwegian plied his trade at Leeds United, Nottingham Forest and Manchester City.
Speaking to Alan Brazil’s Sports Breakfast on talkSPORT, the retired footballer said of his son, “at one stage he would like to play in the Premier League, but when that will happen, I don’t know. It is a very tough league.”
Whilst the English top flight is arguably the best league in the world, there is no doubting that Liverpool target Erling Håland has the ability to make the switch.
The Norwegian striker has scored 12 times in just nine starts in the Austrian first division this season. He also netted an incredible nine goals in one game for his country at the U20 World Championship. His rich vein of form led to the Express reporting that Liverpool may move for the striker.
What RTK has to say
Whichever team bags Erling Håland will have their hands on one of football’s future greats. His ability to score in any game he is thrown into is remarkable, it is easy to forget he is just 19-years-old.
Manchester City definitely have the advantage if the Norwegian does decide to come to the Premier League, his father played for the Citizens during his time in England.
If Liverpool target signing Erling Håland sooner rather than later they may steal the march on their rivals. He would be an incredible addition to the Reds squad and he fits the bill age wise. We can only cross our fingers and hope.
