The transfer battle for the young sharpshooter might settle before it even really starts as one of his many suitors now reportedly have a huge upper hand.

Erling Haaland has agreed personal terms with Chelsea, claims Ian McGarry of the The Transfer Window Podcast.

All that’s left for Chelsea is to strike a deal with Borussia Dortmund, McGarry adds.

The Norwegian sensation’s stock further soared in light of his sensation form in 2020/21 as he scored 41 goals in as many games across Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, DFL-Supercup, and Champions League.

The 20-year-old is said to be a key target for the Blues amid rumors Thomas Tuchel is keen on adding a prolific goalscorer to his squad this summer.

Chelsea could either pay Dortmund their asking price – reportedly €175 million – to land Haaland this summer or wait for his release clause to come into effect and get him for significantly cheaper – reportedly €75 million – in the next summer.

 “Personal terms for Haaland are signed off,” said McGarry.

“It’s just a case of Chelsea agreeing a fee with Dortmund.”

Tuchel’s side are also understood to be keeping tabs on Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane. Lukaku, who scored 30 goals last season, has been linked with a return to the Premier League while Kane, who won the Premier League Golden Boot last term, is tipped to leave Tottenham.
