Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer.
Chelsea have scored just 15 goals from Thomas Tuchel’s first 12 games in charge, showing the Blues may need to sign a proven goal scorer this summer.
According to Football Insider via Daily Express, Chelsea boss Tuchel is willing to offer Timo Werner plus cash for Haaland this summer in order to lower Borussia Dortmund’s asking price.
Werner has scored just 5 league goals this season compared to Haaland who has 19 goals in just 20 league games. Haaland is also the top goalscorer in the Champions League after scoring 10 goals in 6 Champions League appearances.
Meanwhile, Tuchel has revealed he’s working hard with the team to improve the amount of goals Chelsea score.
“In general I’m happy because we don’t only look at the output, how much they score, how much they assist,” said Tuchel.
“Of course this is something, some statistic to which every striker is attached and everybody needs to have the mentality to cope with the pressure that comes along with statistics. It’s like this in high-level football.
“But I have to say at the moment everybody is working hard, nobody is lazy, nobody is taking their time outs when we’re defending. We’re defending high, we’re defending as a block.
“We’re still looking a little bit for the breakthrough for one or two guys to go on a run and score consistently.
“Obviously that’s not the case at the moment and we will not stop pushing and stop looking for solutions to create more clear chances for them.
“That’s the way it is, but there’s no need now to reflect for the summer or reflect on solutions other than the solutions that we have.
“We have guys we are happy with and who have the potential to be more decisive, and we will try to help them.”
