KimTrendNaija brings to you Chelsea latest transfer news making headlines today Monday 18th of January 2021 which involves Erling Haaland alongside Fikayo Tomori who is set to complete a loan move to Ac Milan until the end of season along with other news making rounds concerning the Blues.
ERLING HAALAND NEARS RECORD BREAKING MOVE TO CHELSEA
Chelsea are now desperate to land Borussia Dortmund man Erling Haaland and he wont be coming cheap as they will have to break the bank to sign the Norwegian striker who has been banging in goals since coming back from injury ending of last year which saw him some few amount of games.
Frank Lampard who has been struggling with his attacking is eager to land a move for the youngster as his side still find it hard to ship in goals despite Timo Werner arrival from RB Leipzig which was hyped to be the perfect man to bring in the goals this season in which hasn’t been the issue right now.
Blues target prolific Norwegian forward who has been one of the leading goal scorer in Europe top Leagues this season for his side Dortmund since his arrival from Salzburg despite claims of a move to Manchester United which didn’t materialized after speculations and discussions.
Chelsea are plotting a club-record bid for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, according to reports from The Athletic which is reaching us and it looks likely for a deal to be in place if the Blues are ready to meet up with the asking price which will see them break the bank.
The Norway international has a €75 million (£67m/$91m) release clause in his current contract, but it doesn’t become active until 2022, meaning BVB will likely demand a much higher fee for a prized asset before sanctioning his departure this year which also looks likely possible if the player keeps scoring goals for fun.
However, Chelsea have identified Haaland as a priority target with Frank Lampard eager to add a top forward to his ranks to boost his side’s chances of competing for Premier League and Champions League honours as his job is also under threats with the recent poor run of results despite the new signings.
FIKAYO TOMORI SET FOR AC MILAN LOAN MOVE
Blues Academy graduate Fikayo Tomori is another player who is set to leave Stamford Bridge on loan this season after making his way to the senior team last season but things hasn’t been going his way with him set to join AC Milan on loan with option to buy.
The England International made his debut for the Three Lions last year which was same time Tammy Abraham was also called up but he has failed to replicate such form after coming back from a shot spell injury which was the reason for him losing his spot in the starting XI.
Milan are closing in on a deal that will see them sign Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori on loan until the end of the season with a purchase option of £25 million ($34m) with confirmation coming from Goal we can confirm that the move is set to go down anytime soon with agreement done.
Strasbourg defender Mohamed Simakan had been the Rossoneri’s primary target, but the Frenchman, who is also a target of RB Leipzig, needs surgery and will be sidelined for around two months which means they had to make another plan for the Chelsea man who was impressive last season.
Milan have been following 23-year-old Tomori for some time and only a few details of the deal need to be confirmed before the transfer is made official by the Italia club who currently sits top of the Lega Serie table as they keep pushing for the League title with Juventus out of the race.
