One of the driving forces behind Chelsea’s interest is Thomas Tuchel. According to a report from Bild (via the Sun), Tuchel’s wishes could now become a reality as the Stamford Bridge hierarchy have given him the green light to sign Haaland.

Haaland’s playing style makes him perfectly equipped to make in the top flight of English football. He is an unorthodox player that prides himself on physicality, but interestingly he is also very quick and athletic in his ability. Therefore, plenty of avenues for Tuchel to explore.

Timo Werner hasn’t paid off as a big-money signing. Therefore, you can understand Chelsea’s desire to sign a new striker in the mould of Haaland. He would improve the side pretty much straight away, but would also be a long-term investment and is Champions League proven. It’s essentially a win-win!

It will just take a lot to convince both the club and the player to sell, naturally, but with the financial resources and pull Chelsea have, this is more than doable.
