Dortmund reject Haaland part-exchange deal

Borussia Dortmund have rejected an approach from Chelsea for striker Erling Haaland.

The Blues offered Dortmund the chance to take either Tammy Abraham or Callum Hudson-Odoi in part exchange for Haaland.

But Dortmund are determined not to sell him this summer and appear to be sticking to their guns.

The German club had expressed some interest in Hudson-Odoi, who has fallen down the pecking order of wide-players at Stamford Bridge.

But they were not tempted to part with Haaland, who is one of the most sought-after players in world football.

Manchester City have also been linked with the 20-year-old Norway international.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel, who overlooked Abraham last season, is keen to bring in a top-class striker this summer.

Meanwhile, Olivier Giroud is on the verge of leaving the Bridge to join AC Milan.
