Erling Haaland 'agrees personal terms' with Chelsea as Blues thrash out deal with Borussia Dortmund for strike sensation

ERLING HAALAND has reportedly agreed personal terms over a summer transfer to European champions Chelsea.

Ian McGarry of The Transfer Window Podcast claims Borussia Dortmund’s strike sensation has struck a deal to join Thomas Tuchel’s men after a stunning season in Germany.

Haaland, 20, scored 41 goals in 41 games for the Bundesliga giants, having netted 16 times in 18 outings the previous term.

Tuchel believes the Norway international is the man to fire his Champions League winners to next year’s Premier League title.

And it appears all that’s left is for Chelsea to agree a potential club record transfer fee with Dortmund after getting Haaland to sign off on personal terms.

McGarry said: “Personal terms for Haaland are signed off.

“It’s just a case of Chelsea agreeing a fee with Dortmund.”

Further reports today claim the Blues have already launched an initial bid of £60million PLUS misfit forward Tammy Abraham.

Dortmund are thought to want £150m in cash as they look to hang on to their star man.

But they are known to be fans of Abraham, and could accept a smaller fee if the England striker is involved in the deal.

Meanwhile, it’s also claimed that Chelsea are interested in signing Haaland’s Dortmund teammate Jude Bellingham.

The former Birmingham kid was a revelation during his first season in the Bundesliga.

And Bellingham’s fine form was rewarded with a place in Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions squad for the Euros.

Chelsea are understood to be on the hunt for a new midfielder to boost options in the centre of the park.

And dynamic Bellingham ticks all the boxes Tuchel is looking for.

N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho all impressed under the German tactician.

But each player suffered their own injury setback during the campaign, often leaving Tuchel short on numbers.

Current fourth-choice midfielder Billy Gilmour, 20, is expected to leave on loan after failing to win over his manager.

And Bellingham could yet follow Haaland to Stamford Bridge this summer, linking up with England pals Mason Mount, Reece James and Ben Chilwell.
