Borrussia Dortmund striker and Chelsea target Erling Haaland has weighed in on his reported €175 million pricetag this summer.

The 21-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to London but the Blues face a struggle to secure the signing.

Speaking in a press conference as quoted by Sven Westerschulze, Haaland believe that he is not worth the price quoted.

The Norwegian said: "Before yesterday I haven't spoken with my agent for one month. So you have the answer. I hope it’s only rumours because it’s a lot of money for a person." 

The striker's agent Mino Raiola and father Alfie Haaland are aware of 'concrete interest' from Chelsea this summer as Dortmund are preparing for a big offer for Haaland this summer.

However, the stumbling block in any deal this summer remains Borussia Dortmund's stance. They insist Haaland is not for sale this summer ahead of his £68 million release clause which becomes active in 2022.

Dortmund have already rejected a proposal including Tammy Abraham as the Blues look for a way to bring Haaland to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will try to lure the Norwegian to Chelsea this year with it being claimed that Dortmund are commanding a fee of £150 million should he leave this summer.

It has been reported that Chelsea are preparing an offer of up to £130 million for the 21-year-old this summer as they look to test Dortmund's resolve.

It remains to be seen whether the German club would be tempted into selling the Norwegian as Chelsea up their pursuit for the forward.
