Chelsea may have a better chance of landing Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland, compared to Manchester City.
That is coming from ex Arsenal and England midfielder Paul Merson.
Erling Haaland, 20, continues to be linked with an exit from Borussia Dortmund, with a host of top European clubs interested in his signature.
And Merson is of the opinion that Chelsea will be able to provide greater playing time for Haaland compared to Pep Guardiola’s side.
“Of all the teams who are in for Erling Haaland, Chelsea are the ones who need him most,” Merson wrote in the Daily Star.
“They have always been successful with someone who has a presence up front and Haaland has that. He’s going to score bundles wherever he goes.
“And if you buy him this summer, you still have the prospect of being able to sell him for a profit later down the line because of his age. I’m not sure he’s such a good fit for Manchester City, where he probably wouldn’t play as much.
“But for whoever gets him, it will be worth it. He puts up numbers and he keeps on doing it. Whoever signs him will have a chance of winning the league.”
