Liverpool Echo reporter Ian Doyle has said that the Reds will be very interested in Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian teenager, of course, has been in stunning form this campaign for both Die Schwarzgelben and former club RB Salzburg. He managed a huge 28 goals in 22 appearances in all competitions for the Austrian side before Dortmund parted with €20m (£17.1m) to secure his services. Since the transfer, the 19-year-old has continued to set the world alight, netting 13 times in his first 13 matches in Germany – that leaves him at 41 goals for the campaign.
Liverpool were said to be interested in him before he made the switch to the Westfalenstadion, and Doyle has said that the Reds will continue to have their eye on him. He told the Blood Red Podcast:
“Liverpool will be interested in him because he is one of the up-and-coming youngsters and why wouldn’t you be?
“This time next year, the front three will all be in their 30th year.
“He doesn’t hang around. He had only been at Dortmund a few weeks and he was already talking up a move to Real Madrid or wherever it was.
“He’s still a bit raw at 19 and I saw him in Salzburg and he had a couple of chances, but by the end he had been subbed.
“A player’s agent always seems to be doing a great job putting his name around and if Liverpool are linked, that’s surely a good sign for your player, so that’s why.”
It seems bizarre to think that a player who only completed his last transfer a few months ago may already be on the move again, but given his goalscoring rate so far, the only way is up for this youngster. Liverpool would surely be somewhere he could well move to grow his career.
Would you like to sign Erling Haaland?
He is said to have a €75m (£67.3m) release clause at Dortmund, which is unlikely to be enough to put clubs across Europe off making a move for the youngster. Make no mistake – Haaland will continue to be at the centre of plenty of transfer talk in the coming months and years.
