Barcelona are reportedly tracking Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland but any potential transfer remains some way off.
The Norwegian striker, who only moved to Germany last January, has continued his electric form in front of goal this season having scored 17 goals in 14 appearances in all competitions, form that has reportedly attracted the attentions amongst Barcelona.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the Catalan giants are keeping tabs on the striker, facing competition from some of Europe’s biggest clubs such as Manchester City, Manchester United, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.
It is also suggested that the 20-year-old could cost more than €100m, a fee that Barcelona could simply not afford due to their poor financial situation. The only way that the Spanish giants could realistically be able to bring Haaland to the Nou Camp is if they shift several of their current big earners such as Philippe Coutinho, Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and Samuel Umtiti, amongst others.
In the meantime, Haaland will once again be in action for Borussia Dortmund as they attempt to book their place in the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds against Lazio. The striker sits at odds of 5/2 with Betfair to net the opening goal of the game for Lucien Favre’s men.
