Erling is already in England’ – Chelsea

The Norway international has been linked with a big-money move from the Bundesliga to the Premier League following a superb season at club level

Erling Haaland’s absence from Borussia Dortmund’s pre-season preparations has been laughed off by sporting director Michael Zorc, who quipped that the striker was “already in England” amid heavy transfer speculation.

The Leeds-born Norway international has enjoyed a meteoric rise through the ranks at club level in recent years, backing up an impressive maiden campaign in the Bundesliga with his first bit of silverware after claiming the DFB-Pokal Cup last term.

Such performances have seen a number of potential moves mooted, with Chelsea thought to head a group of Premier League suitors, and his no-show for a fitness test on Monday could have raised alarm bells – but Zorc was quick to shrug off talk of a departure for the 20-year-old.
