Chelsea have seen an offer including two players for Erling Haaland rejected by Borussia Dortmund.
That’s according to Sky Sports Germany, who say the Blues have ‘set their sights’ on the striker and are determined to try and get a deal done.
That’s something we’ve known for some time, with numerous reports from Germany and England over the last few months indicating that they are keen to sign Haaland this summer.
That’s ramped up over the last week or so, with it even reported that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is willing to pay as much as €175m to make a move happen.
It seems the plan is to try and bring the price tag down first, though, and Sky report that one option is the inclusion of players.
According to their information, Chelsea proposed a deal to Borussia Dortmund that would have seen them swap Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi in exchange for the Norwegian star.
BVB, however, were ‘not tempted’ by this offer and ‘declined for the time being’, with them keen to keep Haaland if possible this summer after losing Jadon Sancho.
It seems Chelsea are pushing, though, and are even willing to lose some of their homegrown talents to make a move happen.
