£63.5m Liverpool target ‘is dreaming of the Premier League’ – release clause could make Reds favourites

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland will be available for much less next summer once his reported release clause kicks in.

Liverpool haven’t had a world-class striker since Luis Suarez as I don’t think you can really consider Bobby Firmino as a natural striker.

The Brazilian does look like he’s back to his best after a brace in pre-season and a goal against Norwich but the chance to sign Erling Haaland shouldn’t be passed up on by Liverpool.

While the term is overused by kids on Twitter, the 21-year-old is a generational talent

Of course, the thought of entering into negotiations with Mino Raiola is a daunting one but it would be worth it if it would up seeing Haaland in Red at Anfield.

According to Sky Germany reporter Jesco von Eichmann, Borussia Dortmund would prefer to sell Erling Haaland to a team outside the Bundesliga next summer, and he is “dreaming of a move to the Premier League.”

Fabrizio Romano reports that next summer the striker will have a £63.2million release clause and that will surely make the Reds favourites to land him.

Chelsea have just re-signed Romelu Lukaku and will almost certainly not sign Haaland as well, Manchester City have just signed Jack Grealish and could still add Harry Kane to their ranks not to mention the awful relationship between Raiola and Pep Guardiola.

Manchester United could, in theory, sign Haaland but after signing Jadon Sancho it’s unclear if their owners would sanction another massive signing and if Real Madrid sign Kylian Mbappe, they’re also unlikely to sign Haaland too.

That leaves Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

The latter have the most debt of any football club on the planet while Bayern are not known for making marquee signings but neither are Liverpool in all fairness.

An interesting article from Sport1 – published about Jadon Sancho – included quotes from Melissa Reddy and she said Liverpool have been holding back in the transfer market in the event they stumble upon a major opportunity in the transfer market.

Signing Erling Haaland, the future best no.9 in the world for just £63.2m has to be considered a prime opportunity, and Liverpool cannot miss their chance.
