Erling Haaland has been tipped to break the Premier League’s all-time goal scoring record if he moves to the top-flight from Borussia Dortmund.
In-demand striker Haaland is widely expected to leave his current club next summer, with his agent Mino Raiola having openly revealed they are weighing up his options.
A host of elite sides in England have been tipped to swoop in for him should he become available, and Joe Cole has predicted he will usurp Alan Shearer’s tally.

Over his illustrious stay at Newcastle, Shearer scored a remarkable 260 goals in the top tier, meaning Haaland would have a mountain to climb if he made the switch.
However, given enough time, Cole says the mercurial frontman is more than capable of setting a new milestone.
‘I think if he comes over, at the age he is at now, he will go and break Shearer’s record,’ Cole said, as part of a promotion for bookmakers Coral.

‘If he stays for 10 years, I think he will break all records.’
Haaland is one of the most prolific strikers in world football, having scored 76 goals in 75 appearances for Dortmund.
To little surprise, the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester United are all said to be interested in snapping him up.
And over the second half of the campaign, speculation is certain to heat up, especially in light of Raiola’s thinly-veiled hints that his client may be on the move.

Raiola told SPORT1: ‘Maybe this summer, maybe the summer after. But there is a big chance that Erling will leave this summer. We will see.
‘He can and will take the next step. Bayern, Real, Barcelona, Manchester City – these are the big clubs he can go to.
‘City have won the Premier League five times in the last few years, much more than Manchester United.
‘We all knew when we moved to Dortmund that this step would come.’
