Jamie Carragher has said that it is fantastic that Manchester City have signed Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

Norway international striker Haaland has moved to Premier League champions City from German club Dortmund in a £51 million deal.

The 21-year-old scored 86 goals in 89 matches in all competitions for Dortmund.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher believes that Haaland is an excellent addition to the Premier League.

Carragher told Sky Sports: “It’s a worry for the rest of the Premier League.

“We are talking about one of the world’s greats even at such a young age, but I don’t think anyone should be raising the white flag too early because it’s going to be really interesting how he fits into the team.

“Pep Guardiola hasn’t really used a central striker in the last couple of years and he’s still been very successful.

“So, it will be really interesting to see how he settles but from the Premier League’s point of view, I think it is fantastic that we’ve got one of the world’s leading players right now joining our league.

“That doesn’t always happen, certainly at a young age, and a lot of his best years are going to be in the Premier League.

“So, it’ll be really exciting for everyone to watch but it’s obviously going to be a tough proposition trying to stop Manchester City.”

City can be backed at 66/1 on Betfair to win the Premier League, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the UEFA Champions League next season.
