Liverpool set to hijack Man Utd move for 19-year-old goal machine

Liverpool are reportedly one of the clubs in the running for the move of Red Bull Salzburg forward Erling Haaland after his sensational form this campaign.

Exciting young Norway international has been one of Europe’s most productive scorers this term and has been heavily linked as a top transfer target for Man Utd in recent times.

Haaland has already netted six hat tricks this campaign after another treble over the weekend, and it’s difficult to imagine an elite side won’t snap him up sooner or later.

Don Balon claims that Liverpool are now being talked up as one of those in the running, which would be unfortunate news for their bitter rivals Man United.

The Reds would be the more attractive choice for a top young player right now, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also probably wants him more.

Haaland seems like he’d be a significant upgrade on the slightly inconsistent Marcus Rashford upfront, or at the very least give Solskjaer more depth in that position after he failed to replace Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku after their departures in the summer.

Liverpool already have Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane up front, and the joining of Haaland could make their strike-force close to unstoppable.

Don Balon also links great names like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus as admirers of the 19-year-old, so he may well not end up in the Premier League at all.
