Borussia Dortmund may reportedly try to sign three Chelsea players when they eventually sell centre-forward Erling Haaland.

According to TEAMtalk, Dortmund expect to lose 21-year-old goal machine Haaland next summer when a £68million release clause activates in his contract with them.

As a result, it is understood that the Bundesliga side are already keeping tabs on three Chelsea individuals as potential replacements to bolster their attack.

The report explains that Dortmund have contacted Chelsea because they want to be informed about the availability of Blues pair Timo Werner and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

In addition, they’ve also asked to be updated about Christian Pulisic, who’s a played they sold back in 2019. They may now have their eyes on bringing him back.

Should Blues keep Hudson-Odoi and Werner?

First of all, Hudson-Odoi’s name is one that always seems to crop up in transfer gossip pages. There are plenty who still feel the winger is a big part of the future at Stamford Bridge, though.

The 20-year-old Chelsea academy graduate is a real talent when he plays and is impressing right now for Thomas Tuchel’s side. If he’s happy, he’s got to stay.


Secondly, Werner must be the club’s most talked about player since he joined from German side RB Leipzig last summer. 

The 25-year-old forward was integral throughout his first season, despite the fact he’s frustratingly inconsistent in front of goal. However, there is a place for him in this group because he can cause mayhem to opposition defences.

Chelsea and Dortmund previously agreed £58m Pulisic deal

Finally, Pulisic is a forgotten man right now with Blues supporters because of his injury troubles. 

The 23-year-old wide attacker is phenomenal on his day, with some of his dribbling reminiscent to Eden Hazard. However, it’s been tough for the American since Chelsea signed him.

Pulisic was signed for £58million from Dortmund back in January 2019, albeit he remained with them for the rest of that ongoing season. Incidentally, Maurizio Sarri was the Blues manager at the time.

An in-form Pulisic would be in this Chelsea XI running riot, but surely he’s running out of lives now because of his repetitive injuries. Blues manager Thomas Tuchel did describe him as “fantastic” back in April, though, so he’s obviously highly thought of.
