If Chelsea want Erling Haaland this summer they’ll have to cough up and then some.

It’s widely reported an eye-watering fee of £150million is what will convince Borussia Dortmund to part with their star man in this transfer window.

Haaland is the most in-demand player in Europe after an outstanding 18 months in Germany, which has seen the Norwegian net 57 goals in 59 games for Borussia Dortmund

The Blues are one of the few clubs out there who could spend that amount of money on a single player but even by their standards it would be excessive.

If they did pay Dortmund’s reported asking price then it would smash their record fee for a player, in fact it would more than double it.

Kai Havertz, signed last summer, and Kepa Arrizabalaga, who arrived in 2018, are the club’s record signings, with the club paying a reported £72m for their respective signatures.

Not cheap at all. It’s perhaps no surprise that reports have emerged Chelsea will seek Robert Lewandowski instead.

The Sun says the Blues will be willing to pay a ‘paltry’ £50m for the Bayern Munich striker’s services.

Lewandowski, 32, is arguably in the form of his life having broken Gerd Muller’s record of 40 goals in a Bundesliga season to finish on 41 strikes.

His contract at the Allianz Arena expires in June 2023, though Bayern will understandably be loathe to lose him.

Lewandowski has been with Bayern since 2014 and won the Champions League twice, plus seven league titles – the Ballon d’Or is what he really wants next
