Tuchel: Haaland is 'talked about regularly' at Chelsea 

Thomas Tuchel has revealed Erling Haaland has been and is still 'regularly' a topic of discussion at Chelsea. 

Haaland was the main target for Chelsea during the transfer window before the arrival of Romelu Lukaku who signed for the Blues from Inter Milan. In his interview ahead of Chelsea clash against Malmo, Tuchel admitted the club's ongoing interest in Haaland. 

“We talked about Erling Haaland a couple of times, including during the transfer window," said Tuchel. 

"But then it seemed absolutely unrealistic and not at all feasible." 

"We talk about him regularly, of course, because he’s a fantastic player and clearly the defining figure at Dortmund, who is a big rival for us in the Champions League."

The former PSG coach distanced the west London club from an imminent move but suggested things could change in the near future.

"I don’t think we’ve been really serious about it yet, but let’s see what will happen in the next few weeks," he added.

On prospect of signing Haaland next summer 

"You mean two at the top [with] Lukaku and Haaland? We can talk about it [laughs]!"
