Chelsea owner Abramovich jumping into transfer battle for Borussia Dortmund star Haaland

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to jump into the battle for Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.

Despite not turning 21 until July, the hotshot is rapidly closing in on a century of career goals already.

Haaland has been in excellent form this joining the Bundesliga outfit last January, and already has 17 this term.

And Sky Sport Italia now claims that has led to Frank Lampard informing the Blues board that the Norwegian is his No1 target.

That is despite him spending £123million on bringing Timo Werner and Kai Havertz in to bolster his attack in the summer.

However, Chelsea will face stiff competition for the hotshot.

Manchester United remain linked with the Leeds-born ace - while neighbours Manchester City and Real Madrid are also keen.
