Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland has been in tremendous form this season, and the young striker is being chased by every top club in Europe.

Salzburg defender Maximilian Wober has hailed his team-mate Haaland as a “top professional” ahead of a vital Champions League meeting with Liverpool.

“He is an absolute top professional,” Wober told Goal and DAZN of the 19-year-old star. “While we play cards on away trips, he only reads scientific articles on how to improve his sleep or nutrition. He’s always looking for the smallest details.”

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.”
