Roman Abramovich ‘could force through’ Dortmund double transfer deal.

 Roman Abramovich ‘could force through’ Dortmund double transfer deal.

Chelsea could extend their raid of Borussia Dortmund even after securing a move for striker Erling Erling Haaland, with England midfielder Jude Bellingham reportedly also a target. 

The race for the 17-year-old could spread across several transfer windows.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is perceived to be taking a key role in negotiations, just as he did to take Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen in a £71million deal last summer.

Abramovich is ready to push through settlements for Haaland and Bellingham. The Norwegian would cost upwards of £100m, but it was announced on Wednesday that Chelsea had agreed personal terms with the fertile forward.

Head coach Thomas Tuchel craves for a world-class striker to lead his attack after seeing his side misfire during his first five months in command.

Chelsea started on a remarkable run after Tuchel succeeded Frank Lampard on January 26, losing just three more Premier League matches, but they shared their goals around the squad.


They just about squeezed a fourth-placed finish but sensationally won the Champions League.

The Russian wants to take a related position in talks to sign Haaland, according to Goal. They also remain involved in Tottenham forward Harry Kane.

Abramovich wants to intensify relations with Dortmund ahead of a hotly challenged race for teenager Bellingham in the future.

Chelsea’s ties with the Bundesliga club are diverse, despite them signing Christian Pulisic from the Westfalonstadion.

The west Londoners have before turned down Dortmund’s proposals for striker Michy Batshuayi and, further back, former midfielder Kevin de Bruyne.

Any opportunity for Bellingham could extend long into the future, with the midfielder anticipated to sign fresh terms at Dortmund until 2025.

He had an outstanding first season in Germany after arriving from Birmingham City last summer, appearing 29 times in the Bundesliga.

His form merited him a place in England’s squad for Euro 2020, where he became the youngest-ever player to appear at a European Championship.

Bellingham was a late replacement during the Three Lions’ win over Croatia.

Meanwhile, Chelsea manager Tuchel hopes that a few signings this summer will drive them back among battle for the Premier League title.

“Two or three [signings] could be very, very good. It’s a constant thing to never deny change,” Tuchel said last month.

“That you always bring new energy.

“New guys who question the old beliefs, who challenge everybody in the training and in matches.

“So I think it’s a good thing.

“We don’t need another seven and another complete turnover because it’s also our job to keep on improving, because we have still a young squad and it’s not about stealing from them the chance to prove it again, that they are capable of growing and evolving.

“But we have some ideas, of course, to make the group stronger, and I think this can always be a positive thing to challenge all of us.”
