The 20-year-old has scored 21 Bundesliga goals in as many games this season and has been linked with several clubs.

Liverpool have been rumoured with the Turkish goalkeeper before and are believed to want him as back-up for Alisson Becker.

Chelsea have also been linked with the 24-year-old and were reportedly close to signing him last summer.

The Blues went for Edouard Mendy instead, who has been an excellent addition to their squad.

Two goals from Fenerbahce’s Ozan Tufan and one from Leicester defender Caglar Soyuncu was enough to give Turkey all three points in Norway.

If Liverpool do pursue Haaland, it is believed he will cost £154million this summer.

Borussia Dortmund may be keen to sell the striker before his £65m release clause kicks in next summer.
