Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc recently claimed that he’s not keen on selling his talisman Erling Haaland, this summer.

Chelsea are highly keen on the Norwegian amid interest from many of Europe’s top clubs, but the Blues are now the favourites for his signature, with other clubs not financially capable to spend big on the 20-year-old this summer.

Zorc said of the striker’s future (via Bild): “Nothing has changed. We are still planning with Erling for the new season.”

However, despite the recent statement by Zorc, Haaland’s compatriot Jan Aage Fjortoft has claimed that Chelsea are planning something big for Haaland and Dortmund ‘won’t say no’ if Chelsea were to make an offer of £150m.

Fjortoft wrote on Twitter: “Re: Haaland

“I understand Chelsea are preparing a “BIG offer” to check out and challenge Dortmund’s “he will stay here next season”.

“The understanding is that Dortmund won’t say no to 175 million euro.”

Fjortoft, who previously played for Norway and now works in the media, has admitted that a huge deal is on the card for Haaland, but Chelsea may have to spend so much to make it happen.
