Domestic football competitions are coming to a close right across Europe and the continent’s best players will shortly be lining up at Euro 2020. Attention is starting to shift, but, at the same time, reports are also focussing on the summer transfer window.
This could be a close season like no other with several of football’s biggest names coming under the spotlight. Strikers fetch the biggest money in the markets and, by our reckoning, at least five mega money deals could take place.
Here are the five players who could potentially be on the radar of new employer.
5. Erling Haaland: Borussia Dortmund
When Erling Haaland was establishing himself as a top class striker with Red Bull Salzburg, a number of clubs seemed to be monitoring his progress. The Norwegian international would finish his time in the Austrian Bundesliga with 29 goals from just 27 matches but there were doubts as to whether he could make a step up.
Haaland was just a teenager and the Austrian top flight isn’t known to be the toughest division in Europe. Eventually, Borussia Dortmund made their move and the player has maintained his incredible scoring record in Germany. Dortmund are a competitive side but they do not win trophies on a regular basis and that’s why clubs such as Barcelona and Manchester City are being linked with Erling Haaland.
