Erling Haaland To Liverpool Would Be "Ideal" Transfer

Liverpool would be the "ideal" club for Erling Haaland when he leaves Borussia Dortmund, says ex-England manager Fabio Capello.


Capello believes Jurgen Klopp's coaching skills could make Haaland even better as the teenage sensation scored his 41st goal of the season on Saturday.

The Norwegian starlet bagged Borussia Dortmund's opening goal against Schalke during their thumping 4-0 victory on the return of the Bundesliga.

Haaland has now scored 10 league goals for his new side since his January switch from Red Bull Salzburg.

He's already attracting interest from Europe's elite with the star forward having a £63 million release clause in his contract which can be activated in 2022.

He's expected to leave with mega-clubs set to pounce and Capello thinks the Premier League, Liverpool in particular - would be an "ideal" destination.

Speaking on Sky Sports Italia, the 73-year-old said the Premier League leaders would be "ideal" for the 19-year-old considering his physical attributes, per Daily Mail.

He also said Haaland would be a perfect match for Liverpool with his size and speed.

Despite reports linking him with a move away from Germany, Lothar Matthaus reckons Haaland should stay at Dortmund for now.

"He has huge potential, but still has time. I don't want to put any pressure on him with my statements," he explained.

"If he works hard, he can become a better player and eventually reach the top level. Therefore it might be good for him if he would stay in the Bundesliga longer before taking the next step."

Could Haaland team up with the "incredible" Virgil van Dijk in the near future? Watch this space.
