European football expert Jan Aage Fjortoft has revealed Chelsea are ‘confident’ of signing fellow Norwegian Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund this summer.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is keen on signing the 20 year old striker after scoring an astonishing 41 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions for the German side this season.
Fjortoft tweeted: “Chelsea working intense (sic) to get Erling Haaland. He is seen as the ‘missing’ player to make them challenge for the PL title next season.
“Fee very high, but confidence that this can be solved. The main obstacle could be the wage-structure at Chelsea.”
Chelsea believe they can pay the estimated £170m fee to sign Haaland but are concerned with how his possible £500,000-a-week wages could damage the balance of the club’s strict wage structure.
