Chelsea and Man City leading Erling Haaland transfer race this summer with Dortmund demanding £150m for striker
CHELSEA and Manchester City are the frontrunners for Erling Haaland's signature this summer, according to reports.
The Borussia Dortmund hotshot has hit 27 goals in 25 games this season, including a recent scissor kick spectacular against Schalke.3Erling Haaland is set to be a hot property in the summer marketCredit: AFP or licensors
A fee of around £150million is said to be required to prise the Norwegian from the Bundesliga club.
In 2022, a release clause worth £75m will activate but Europe's top clubs may not wait for such a reduction.
According to Eurosport, Chelsea want to make a statement in the market to highlight their title ambitions under Thomas Tuchel.
The Blues are described as confident of their chances of signing Haaland, having made contact with senior figures in his camp.
A hefty £260m transfer kitty is reportedly being readied for Tuchel to produce the club's first serious challenge since Antonio Conte won the Premier League in 2017.
Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule and AC Milan's Franck Kessie have also been linked, with Haaland increasingly seen as the priority target.
Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are named as the main challenger for the 20-year-old striker.
Sergio Aguero could leave the Etihad in the next 18 months, or sooner if the 32-year-old fails to earn a new contract.
