The player's agent Mino Raiola claimed his client could move to England's top flight at the end of the season.
"It is obvious that everybody is looking at Erling as one of those potential new future stars because it's so difficult to do what he does at his age at his level," he told BBC.
"He will be one of the future stars of the next decade because we see that stars such as Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo and Messi are coming to an age where everyone asks themselves: 'How long can we still enjoy them?' So everyone is looking for the new generation.
"Only a maximum of 10 clubs can afford to buy [Haaland] and give the platform you would like after you've been in Dortmund... and four of those clubs are in [England].
"I don't think there's a sports director or trainer in the world who would say 'not interested.'
"It's like saying: 'Is there a Formula 1 team who would not be interested in having Lewis Hamilton?'"
