Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has set his first goal in the transfer market, to support his team with a heavy-duty attacking deal next season.
Tuchel was appointed only days ago as technical director of the London team, succeeding Frank Lampard, who was sacked for poor results.
The British newspaper Daily Mail reported that the Norwegian Erling Haaland, the Borussia Dortmund striker, became the German coach’s first goal in the summer Mercato.
This comes after the 20-year-old entered the interests of the London club in the last period, but he did not formally move to try to include him.
The newspaper reported that the Chelsea administration is preparing 100 million dollars to submit an official offer to join the Norwegian international at the earliest opportunity.
Haaland has a long-term contract with Dortmund, but it includes a penalty clause that can be activated in the summer of 2022.
Haaland completed his first year at Signal Iduna Park in January, after joining Dortmund in December 2019, coming from Red Bull Austrian Salzburg.
Tuchel’s first match with Chelsea ended in a goalless draw with Wolverhampton, on Wednesday, in the English Premier League.
