Chelsea have been linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

The 20-year-old Norwegian has been in amazing form since his move from RB Salzburg to Dortmund.

With 44 goals in 44 games since moving to Dortmund, Haaland is now the most sought after striker in the world at the moment.

Chelsea were linked with Haaland before his move to Dortmund, but no serious effort was put in, as the young striker eventually moved to Dortmund.

Controversial agent Mino Raiola, has now revealed that Haaland is way ahead of schedule and that everyone was wrong in their prediction of the young striker.

“With Haaland, everybody was wrong. He did things much quicker than everybody imagined. Haaland is in front of his own development,” Raiola told The Athletic.

“He is ahead of his own schedule. Maybe I was too careful when I said, ‘Oh no, let’s move to Dortmund instead of I-don’t-know-where’.

“This boy — I’m 100 per cent convinced and everybody’s convinced — can move to any club, wherever he wants, already on this level. And he could have done that last year.

“But maybe last year there were still teams (saying), ‘Oh, he was in Red Bull, can he do it in another club?’. He is quicker than his own prediction. So yeah, Haaland is the talk of the town.”
