Chelsea have moved closer to signing Erling Haaland after reports suggested that the Blues have reportedly agreed personal terms with the Norwegian.
A deal remains quite a way off until Chelsea can agree a fee with Borussia Dortmund for the striker.
Boss Thomas Tuchel is eyeing a forward this summer having lacked a clinical finisher during his first six months in charge.
The German replaced Frank Lampard in January and his squad have shared the goals around.
Despite all seven of his goals being penalties, midfielder Jorginho ended the Premier League campaign as the club’s top scorer.
Timo Werner, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham scored six each, although the latter’s goals all came under Lampard.
Chelsea appear to have made Haaland their top priority this summer with a view to signing a natural goalscorer to help them better challenge Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool for the Premier League title.
And recent reports suggest that Haaland has already agreed personal terms with the Blues.
The Norwegian scored 27 goals in 28 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund this season.
His form has made him one of the hottest properties in Europe.
Haaland has been the subject of a Chelsea bid in the region of £60million plus Abraham, according to Italian-based journalist Ekrem Konur
Chelsea value Abraham at around £40m, meaning that the deal would be the equaivalent of around £100m.
Dortmund have apparently not responded to the offer. They instead want closer to £150m.
