Chelsea identify two alternatives if deal for Haaland fails to materialise

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is a key transfer target for the Blues this summer but the Blues have reportedly identified two alternatives should a deal fail to materialise.

Borussia Dortmund are reportedly reluctant to sell the 20 year old striker and are only willing to let him leave if an offer of around £150million is received.

According to Daily Express, Chelsea could turn to Stuttgart’s Austrian striker Sasa Kalajdzic or Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski if a deal for Haaland fails to materialise.

Lewandowski has two years left on his contract and Bayern Munich are expected to demand £50million for the Poland striker who turns 33 on Wednesday.

Kalajdzic, 24, played all four of Austria’s games at Euro 2020 and found the back of the net in the extra time defeat to Italy in the round of 16.

He scored 17 goals for Stuttgart last season and is reportedly valued at around £34million.
