Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly set to rival Liverpool and Manchester United for RedBull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland after his explosive form this season – and Spurs fans have reacted on Twitter.
The Daily Star has claimed that 19-year-old striker Haaland has been in stunning form for Austrian side Salzburg after joining them in the summer from Molde FK. Haaland has since played 11 times for Salzburg, scoring a huge 18 goals.
Son of former Manchester City and Leeds player Alf Inge Haaland, Erling has even scored four goals in two Champions League matches this season. A hat-trick against Genk was quickly followed by a tap-in against Liverpool at Anfield.
Spurs saw Vincent Janssen move to Mexico with Monterrey while also releasing veteran target man Fernando Llorente, who has since joined Napoli. Spurs have little other option up front than Harry Kane.
Haaland has now been linked but Spurs face stiff competition from two of the Premier League’s biggest sides for the Leeds-born star, as well as Italian champions Juventus who are keen to bring in the Norway international.
It remains to be seen how much Haaland would cost any interested parties, but Tottenham fans have reacted on Twitter with some fans urging their side to get a deal done. Some believe Troy Parrott deserves a chance, while one fan bemoaned the fact that Haaland supports his Father’s old side, Leeds.
