Chelsea are among the clubs interested in signing Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer.

The 20-year-old has netted 17 goals in as many Bundesliga appearances this season – as well as eight goals in just five Champions League outings.

According to Haaland’s agent, Mino Raiola, only four Premier League clubs can sign the Norway international.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City are believed to be the Premier League clubs that Haaland is open to joining.

“The problem that I feel you have in England, especially in England, whenever I tell my opinion – just an opinion that I have – everybody in England goes berserk,” Raiola told BBC Sport when asked about Haaland’s future.

“I am the worst agent, or I am the best, it doesn’t matter, you have people that love you or people that hate you – or 80% hates me, 20% loves me or whatever.

“And clubs get so much stress and stressed out by it, especially from the public and the journalists, that I’ve learned not to talk so much about it, only during the market.

“It is obvious though that everybody is looking at Erling as one of those potential new future stars because it’s so difficult to do what he does at his age at his level.

“He will be one of the future stars of the next decade because we see that stars such as Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo and Messi are coming to an age where everyone asks themselves: ‘How long can we still enjoy them?’ So everyone is looking for the new generation.

“It’s obvious that only maybe a maximum of 10 clubs can afford to buy [Haaland] from Dortmund so we can all fill in those clubs.

“And four of those clubs are in your beautiful country [England]. And you can fill them in, you can call them and ask ‘Would you be interested?’

“I don’t think there’s a sports director or trainer in the world who would say ‘I am not interested’. It’s like saying: ‘Is there a Formula 1 team who would not be interested in having Lewis Hamilton?'”
