Liverpool have made it clear that they are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland next summer, according to 90min journalist Graeme Bailey, as cited by Anfield Edition’s Twitter account.
The report claims that the Reds have made contact with the 21-year-old’s agent regarding a transfer.
The report further adds that Haaland is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund next summer.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Haaland is a serious footballer. The striker has scored 65 goals and registered 19 assists in 65 appearances for Borussia Dortmund’s first-team.
Due to Haaland’s age and obvious talent, he possesses a current market value of €130 million. However, it has been reported that the youngster will be available for no more than €90 million next summer (potential release clause).
We do hope that Liverpool sign Haaland. The Norway international could lead Liverpool’s line for a decade.
Liverpool have won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and Premier League title in the past three years.
Therefore, the Reds are currently an attractive option for top players like Haaland.
