Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland was absent from preseason training on Monday amid reports linking the striker with a move to Chelsea.

Former Norwegian footballer Jan Aage Fjortoft, who now works in the media, has claimed Chelsea are preparing a big money offer for the 20-year-old.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has repeatedly insisted Haaland isn’t for sale amid interest from Chelsea and gave an update on the striker after he missed preseason training on Monday.

When Sky Sports Germany asked where Haaland was, Zorc smiled and joked: “He’s already in England!”

Haaland, who has scored 57 goals in 59 games since joining Dortmund, is understood to be valued at around £150m.
