Chelsea could reportedly attempt to sign both Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.
Aguero will leave Man City on a free transfer at the end of June, and the experienced striker is believed to be keen on remaining in the Premier League.
Haaland, meanwhile, continues to be linked with a move away from Dortmund, who are facing the possibility of missing out on a spot in next season’s Champions League.
According to 90min, Chelsea are open to the idea of bringing two strikers to the club this summer due to the uncertainty surrounding the futures of Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud.
The report claims that signing Haaland is the London club’s priority in the upcoming market, but Aguero is also ‘under consideration’ by senior figures at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea allegedly believe that their hopes of a Premier League title push this season have been harmed due to a lack of firepower, with Timo Werner and Kai Havertz both struggling since arriving last summer.
Haaland is also believed to be a target for Barcelona, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Man City and Manchester United ahead of this summer’s transfer window.
Last summer saw plenty of arrivals without any notable names moving on, but there simply isn’t room in the squad for everyone as it is so exits have to be expected this summer.
Tammy Abraham’s status at the club isn’t completely clear as he’s played in plenty of games this season, but you do get the impression that he wants to be a regular starter but Tuchel only sees him as a rotational player.
That makes him a candidate for a move this summer, and a report from ESPN actually makes it sound pretty likely.
It’s confirmed that talks were underway for an extended contract that would tie him down for multiple years, but those talks have since been called off and Chelsea want to wait until the summer before making a further decision.
