Former Irish striker Tony Cascarino has called on his former club Chelsea to make a ‘mind-blowing’ transfer this summer.
Cascarino believes the west London club could win the potentially record-breaking signing of Borussia Dortmund talisman Erling Haaland.
Reports suggest Chelsea have already made personal terms with the Norwegian striker and are pushing for the transfer to take place this summer.
An agreement will not be cheap, however, but the Blues seem to clear the bridges to make room, Olivier Giroud having left for AC Milan and Tammy Abraham, a target for Arsenal, apparently surplus to needs.
“Rumor has it that Tammy (Abraham) is going, so they make room. They have to do it because of financial fair play, ”Cascarino told talkSPORT.

“Some people will say it doesn’t work, but the clubs try to play by the rule and they have to move people.
“For them to do that, they’re going to make a mind-blowing transfer and I think it will be Haaland. Everyone say no, it’s next year and it’s in his contract, Chelsea are going to offer someone a lot of money and I think it will be him.

Dortmund themselves are set to sign potential Haaland replacement Donyell Malen, who is expected to sign from Dutch PSV Eindhoven.
And Cascarino believes Chelsea must do whatever it takes to bring one of the best prospects in world football to Stamford Bridge.

He said: “Chelsea have made a lot of money in the last year or so, the Champions League and the sale of Hazard. They are making a lot of money.
“I can’t believe they’re not going to break the bank to have someone like Haaland. They’re going to make a really big transfer in my opinion.
“It was so calm but the storm is coming. Roman always has. He has always supported it, I would be shocked if they come in with the squad they have today even though they are European champions, expect a really big deal from Chelsea. ‘.
