Erling Haaland is believed to be interested in Chelsea transfer if the blues can find a way of negotiating a deal with Dortmund, either for this summer or next.
It was reported yesterday that Chelsea have not abandoned their interest in Haaland, despite Dortmund insisting the player is not for sale this summer.
It is reported that Chelsea are not only looking at the possibility of trying to sign Haaland this summer, but also of setting up an agreement for next year if Dortmund remain determined to keep him for a further year.
Chelsea have a good relationship with Dortmund from the deal that saw Pulisic agree a deal to join the blues in January 2019 before moving to London in the summer of that same year.
Whether or not it would be possible to come to a similar arrangement over Haaland if the German side will not agree to any deal this summer remains unknown.
That may also rest on whether or not Chelsea can sign another big-name striker this summer if they refuse to let Haaland leave this year.
A deal to sign Haaland would cost more than £150m this summer, but the Norwegian is believed to have a release clause in his contract that would allow him leave for around £65m next year.
Only Man City, Chelsea and Man United would be able to afford to sign Haaland this summer, but Real Madrid are said to be hoping he stays at Dortmund one more season so they can make an offer in 12 months.
That has persuaded the London club to try to find out whether or not any deal can be done for now or in the future for Haaland, who is believed to be interested in a move to Stamford Bridge.
But Chelsea feel optimistic about the deal and have also attempted to find out whether or not Dortmund would be interested in Abraham.
Should City sign Harry Kane from Tottenham, then Chelsea could get a free run at Haaland while other clubs, including Real, are hamstrung by the financial impact of Covid-19.
While the Red devils are interested in Haaland and Kane, their priority is to sign a winger with Jadon Sancho their major target and Dortmund ready to sell the England star.
