Erling Braut Haaland has been hitting the headlines this season, with Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Manchester United among the clubs reported to be interested in the FC Salzburg striker.

According to The Daily Star, Liverpool, Tottenham and United all are interested in securing the services of Haaland.

The report has also claimed of interest in the Norway international striker from Italian and European giants Juventus.

Haaland is a very promising and talented young striker who has scored 18 goals in 11 matches for FC Salzburg so far this season, including four in the Champions League, according to The Daily Star.

 

Former Norway international centre-forward Jan Age Fjortoft recently spoke highly of Haaland, who is the son of ex-Leeds United and Manchester City star Alf-Inge Haland, and his comments will surely encourage fans of Tottenham, United and Liverpool, and underline just how good the teenage can be.

Fjortoft told BBC Sport about Haland on October 2, 2019: "His father is a good friend of mine, so we knew about him for a long time.

Then we saw him when he came to Molde under Solskjaer and thought that this was a guy who could go far.

“First, this is a guy desperate to score goals, which is a good start. Secondly, he has that speed and strength. He's so clear in what he wants.”

Promising talent

Haaland is only 19 years of age, and the Norway international is a star of the future.

The teenager would be a very good long-term signing for Tottenham, United or Liverpool.
