Thomas Tuchel & Chelsea's Concerns Over Erling Haaland Transfer Revealed

Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea are 'huge admirers' of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland but they have concerns, according to reports.

Chelsea enquired last summer over a move for the Norwegian international but Dortmund wanted to keep hold of Haaland, as well as the demands just being far too high.
