Chelsea have been linked with a move to sign Erling Haaland this summer, as the Blues are in search of a top striker at the club.

20-year-old Haaland is already being touted as one of the best strikers in the game, and has been linked with a big money move away from Borussia Dortmund, with many of Europe’s top clubs interested in his signature.

However, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he doesn’t see those big money moves happening this summer.

“The market will be really strange,” Klopp said.

“I hear a lot about big-money moves, is Mbappe going or not, Haaland, Sancho, these kind of things.

“I don’t see that happening a lot this summer because the football world is still not in the same place it was before.

“Getting players back [from injury] makes us already better. These are our first transfers. We don’t know exactly when that will happen, but it will happen. All the rest, we have to see.

“If we don’t go to Champions League it is not good but there is still a chance. But if not, then we have to deal with that.”
