Leeds fans react on Twitter to Erling Haaland's Champions League hat-trick

A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to react to Erling Haaland’s Champions League hat-trick – with many suggesting that the striker needs to be on the club’s shopping list if they are promoted this year.

What is just as remarkable is that Haaland has already scored 11 league goals in seven games this term. It also cannot be forgotten that he scored nine goals in one international for Norway’s under-20s back in May.

And the Leeds supporters on social media could not help but notice Haaland’s heroics, with many expressing their hope for a future deal for the youngster.

The 19-year-old was born in Leeds and told Aftenposten in 2017 that his dream was to win the Premier League with the Whites.

Judging by his current form, Haaland is not going to come cheap for any admirer. But the Leeds fans are hopeful that his affection for the club could give them a chance of pulling off a remarkable deal should they get themselves back to English football’s top table.
