Many Tottenham Hotspur fans are shocked after the north London club have been linked with a move in the summer transfer window for Erling Braut Haaland, according to TUTTOmercatoWEB (via Ricky Sacks).
Haaland only joined Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window from RB Salzburg and unless Spurs can offer the £63m that triggers his reported release clause (Metro) ahead of any other potential suitors, it could prove very difficult to sign him.
The Norwegian has played 11 games for the German giants in all competitions since his move to the Bundesliga and has already scored 12 goals as well as provided two assists, according to Transfermarkt.
Could Tottenham seriously sign Erling Haaland?
Buying the 19-year old could also prove an expensive gamble given that Jose Mourinho tends to play one-striker formations (via Bleacher Report), meaning the 19-year-old may have to displace Harry Kane, unless the Portuguese coach changes his system.
Nevertheless, these Spurs fans feel that any deal is unlikely with some supporters questioning whether April Fools’ Day has come early:
April first is next week
