The 20-year-old prodigy, widely regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, has seen his stock rise tremendously after scoring an impressive 48 times inside 51 games for club and country last season.
As a result of that stellar form, Chelsea were believed to have made an offer for Haaland earlier this month before being almost immediately rejected by Dortmund, with the Bundesliga giants remaining hellbent on keeping their prized asset.
But according to 90min, the Blues are not taking no for an answer and are readying a monster bid for the Norway captain, despite Dortmund's public insistence that they are not interested in listening to bids this summer.
That rumour has since been backed up by transfer specialist Jan Aage Fjortoft, who told ESPN that a "fantasy bid" worth around €175m (£150m) is set to arrive on Dortmund's desk soon.
"Chelsea have him as their main target," Fjortoft said.
"They would like to test Dortmund with a fantasy offer, and a fantasy offer will be around [€175m] - double what they can get for him next summer."
