Erling Haaland News: Liverpool, Arsenal Could Have Signed Him

Erling Haaland news: Former Molde scout John Vik has revealed that both Liverpool and Arsenal were interested in signing Haaland when he was at the Norwegian side.

Haaland has since become one of the world’s best strikers. He left Molde for RB Salzburg in August 2018. He scored 29 goals for the Austrian side during his stint at the club, which lasted over a year.

Bigger European clubs came calling for the highly-rated Norwegian and it was Borussia Dortmund who won the race for his signature in December 2019.

Haaland maintained impressive standards at Dortmund, scoring 86 goals from 89 appearances during his two-and-a-half season stay at the German side. A move away from Dortmund sooner or later was always touted and Man City landed him in the summer of 2022.

Speaking to The Athletic, former Molde scout John Vik revealed that both Liverpool and Arsenal could have signed the attacker before he joined RB Salzburg.

Liverpool could have got him. Arsenal could have got him,” Vik said. “Everyone was there to watch him but these clubs were seeing a No.9 who was tall and broad and, ‘Oh, he’s going to be a target man.

“I couldn’t for the life of me see why they had narrowed him down that way.

Meanwhile, Haaland has joined Man City on a five-year contract. He has instantly hit the ground running at the Premier League side.
