Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland is one of the hottest strikers in the world at the moment, and the young striker has bagged 27 goals in 20 terms.

Haaland has been linked with many of Europe’s top clubs, but his dad Alf-Inge Haaland has told Sport Bild that his son is keen on a move to the Premier League.

“One day, Erling wants to play in the Premier League,” Alf-Inge Haaland told Sport Bild.

“I don’t know when the timing will be ideal. We are ahead of our own career schedule, but it is a very tough league.”

Manchester United, Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid are all keen on the 19-year-old too, but the Blues can be quick to make the signing if the transfer embargo is lifted.

At just 19, Haaland has shown that he has the potential to become one of the best strikers in the world.
