The latest report has revealed that Chelsea are serious in their attempt to sign a new striker this summer transfer window.
And their main target is Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland, who has scored 41 goals in 41 appearances for the German side.
As Chelsea compete with Real Madrid, Man City, Barcelona, Man Utd and others for the signing of the 20-year-old, the latest report has revealed that Chelsea may have beaten others in the race with their recent move.
The report revealed that Chelsea have made contact with people close to Haaland about a possible move to Stamford Bridge next season.
Haaland has a release clause in his current deal, but it can only be activated next year, and a recent report claimed the German giants wanted € 200million (£ 172million) for the striker this summer.
According to GoalChelsea have reached out to 20-year-old agent Mino Raiola as well as Dortmund to express their interest ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.
Chelsea are also reportedly interested in Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane, but would prefer a move to Man Utd and Man City.
Haaland, meanwhile, has expressed interest in joining the Blues.
