Chelsea were among the teams strongly linked with sensational former RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland, but the teenager ended up signing for German side Borussia Dortmund.

The 19-year-old enjoyed a dream debut for Borussia Dortmund over the weekend, scoring a 23 minute hat-trick after coming off the bench against Augsburg.

Dortmund were losing the game 3-2, only for Haaland to come on and turn the game around.

See how Chelsea fans reacted to his debut performance

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has now admitted that he is keen on strengthening the team especially in the forward area.

The manager told Sky Sports after the 1-0 loss to Newcastle: “We know we have problems at the top of the pitch in terms of we don’t get enough goals. If you don’t score you are always liable for a sucker punch and they got it.

“If we are looking for people to bring in to the areas to win games when you are controlling it, it is scoring goals.

“We can’t work anymore in training on finishing. You need to have that killer instinct in front of goal. We need to score more goals from front-line areas if we are going to get to where we want to be.

“It’s quite clear from what I am saying now that we know where we need to strengthen but we shall see.”
