Premier League clubs’ hopes rated as Haaland’s dad and agent ‘fly to London’
Erling Haaland’s stock continues to rise as speculation continues on the forward’s future.
The Norwegian is now on 124 goals for club Borussia Dortmund and country Norway at the age of 20 years old.
It has seen the youngster get linked with some of the biggest clubs in Europe this summer amid the German side’s financial struggles.
Agent Mino Raiola is not wasting any time, flying out with Haaland’s dad Alf-Inge to meet with Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.
But Mundo Deportivo have reported that the pair are continuing their tour with a flight to London today.
So Daily Star Sport has taken a look at which clubs could be sitting at the negotiating table and what their chances are…
The Blues can certainly compete with Europe’s big-hitters when it comes to finance.

While his counter-attacking style of play would suit ex-Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel’s 3-4-3 style.
Such is Chelsea’s desire to sign Haaland that the Russian chief break his rule on not doing business with Raiola again after a falling out of Romelu Lukaku.
And these factors make the Stamford Bridge side a strong competitor for the 20-year-old’s signature.
It was the Red Devils who lost out to Dortmund when Haaland joined from RB Salzburg in January 2020.
Having scored 28 goals in 22 games for the Austrian side, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was hoping to lure his former Molde forward to Old Trafford.
United can also provide a spot for the 20-year-old at the top of the line, with Edinson Cavani set for a return to South America.
With the club appearing to cool their interest in Haaland’s team-mate Jadon Sancho and sitting second in a secure Champions League spot, they could more of a lure for the forward than expected.
