As the days go by, Erling Haaland gets closer and closer to a move to Liverpool.
Many Reds fans have grown frustrated with the club’s lack of transfer activity so far this summer.
Some are demanding the club sign a striker and a midfielder before the transfer window closes.
One big reason for this frustration is the fact that rival clubs have been signing megastars left, right and centre.
Manchester United have got Jadon Sancho, Chelsea seem on the verge of signing Romelu Lukaku while Manchester City edge closer to adding Harry Kane to their Jack Grealish purchase.
Meanwhile, on the continent, Real Madrid are looking more likely to sign Kylian Mbappe, while PSG are about to bring in Leo Messi(!).
Even Barcelona, who are skint, have signed Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero.
Every rival at home and abroad is improving, while Liverpool are looking static.
Yet all of this could well lead to the Merseysiders bringing in arguably the dream signing of every side in Europe – Erling Haaland.
Liverpool one of the few options for Haaland
Haaland will leave Borussia Dortmund next summer.
Per Fabrizio Romano, he has a release clause of £63.5m which kicks in in June 2022.
For a player that would cost £172m to sign this year (Daily Mail), that is an absolute steal.
Usually, Liverpool would not be in the market for someone as good as Haaland due to financial reasons, but they could well go for him when he is available for that cheap.
City and Chelsea will not be in need of a striker if they sign their targets this summer. Neither will Real Madrid if they get Mbappe.
If PSG don’t sell the Frenchman this summer, they will lose him for free next year. With Messi and Neymar on the wage bill, will they be able to afford Haaland too?
United look to be spending all their money this year. Even if they do have more in reserve, would they really want a striker when they have Mason Greenwood lined up to be the long-term No 9?
Barcelona certainly will not be able to afford him.
So that leaves just Juventus and Bayern Munich as clubs on Liverpool’s level that could be in for the Norwegian.
For us, Liverpool are more attractive prospects than both.
So, the ball is in our court. We really do believe that if the Reds want Erling Haaland, they can have him.
Let’s see if they go for him.
