Chelsea identify player to sign if Haaland deal fail
Chelsea have identified the player to sign if they are unable to complete a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland this summer.
Chelsea have been linked with a transfer move for Haaland, but Dortmund reportedly wants at least £150 million for the Norway international.
Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, is keen to add a top striker to his squad ahead of the upcoming new season.
According to the Daily Star, Chelsea have identified Stuttgart’s Sasa Kalajdzic as an alternative if they fail to complete the signing of Haaland.
Kalajdzic is likely to be available at an absolute fraction of Haaland’s value.
The 24-year-old was impressive for Austria at the recently concluded Euro 2020.
He scored 16 goals for Stuttgart in the Bundesliga last season as he led the club finished the ninth position on the log.
