Borussia Dortmund hotshot Erling Haaland is reportedly ready to make a move to Chelsea this summer.
Haaland has courted interest from a number of top European clubs including Man United, Man City, Barcelona, and Real Madrid.
The Blues are also understood to be exploring the possibility of signing the forward, with Thomas Tuchel looking to bolster his attack.
However, the Norwegian is expected to cost in excess of £150 million, while he would demand a salary in the region of £300k a week.
The Telegraph now reports despite Haaland attracting the interest of a number of clubs, he is only keen on a switch to Stamford Bridge.
The publication added the youngster is attracted by the prospect of joining Thomas Tuchel’s side.
Chelsea are fully aware they will face a mountainous task in trying to sign Haaland this summer and are considering the option of securing an agreement that would see the forward remain at Dortmund for another year before finally moving to the Premier League.
Dortmund, meanwhile, are desperate to keep Haaland for another season as they are unwilling to lose both the Norway international and Jadon Sancho.
TUKO.co.ke earlier reported Sancho is inching closer to sealing a stunning transfer move to Old Trafford.
United have been tracking Sancho for months now and came close to completing the transfer last summer but were put off by Dortmund’s £108m asking price.
Metro UK reports the German side have since lowered the winger’s valuation to around £100m, £20m of which is add-ons.
The development surrounding Sancho’s transfer came only days after it emerged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had prioritised it.
