Liverpool need to sign a striker in the near future. It’s time to upgrade on Roberto Firmino. However, when this signing will be made is unclear. Chelsea swooping for Romelu Lukaku could clear the path for Liverpool to sign Erling Haaland.
Chelsea chase Erling Haaland
This summer Roman Abramovich’s West London pet has been relentless.
The Blues have been linked with plenty of high profile signings.
Chelsea have been purportedly chasing Erling Haaland.
It was even reported that the billionaire backed side had agreed personal terms with the Norwegian prodigy.
Chelsea bid for Romelu Lukaku
The Chels’ pursuit of the youngster hasn’t been successful so far.
As a result they’ve turned their attention to an ex-player of theirs by the looks of it.
It has been widely reported that Chelsea have bid for Romelu Lukaku but their £85m offer has been rejected by Inter Milan.
The Belgian striker has established himself as one of the world’s premier strikers in recent seasons, last term he netted 24 and assisted 11 in the league.
Clears path for Liverpool and Erling Haaland
Surely not even Chelsea can afford both Lukaku and Haaland.
The West London side moving for their former striker this summer would likely rule them out of the running for the Norwegian next summer.
This could help clear the path for Liverpool to move for Erling Haaland, who famously has a £64m release clause next summer.
Things look particularly rosy when you consider Man City’s move for Harry Kane.
Finances in Spain are looking dire, it may have to be a Premier League club for the future Ballon d’Or winner.
If City and Chelsea both make their signings then it could be between Manchester United and Liverpool for Erling Haaland.
