RB Salzburg have slapped a massive £86million price tag on their in-demand jewel Erling Braut Haaland, according to recent reports from Italy and England
Author of an outstanding start to the season, the highly-rated forward has been in the spotlight ever since his heroic performance against Genk in Salzburg’s Champions League curtain-raiser.
Free-scoring 19-year-old has increased his tally to 23 goals scored in all competitions for the reigning Austrian champions after converting a spot-kick against Napoli on Tuesday night.
It was Haaland’s seventh goal in the Champions League this term, as he currently leads the goalscoring chart, with Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski sitting second with a two-goal deficit.
Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Juventus have all already shown their interest in the former Molde hitman, but no concrete offers been made so far.

As reported by The Sun, the Austrian giants have put a staggering £86million price tag on their teenage sensation, who can’t stop scoring this season.
Although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently played down talks about his interest in Haaland, the Norwegian boss has to bolster his attacking ranks in January, and his former protégé seems like an ideal candidate.
The Red Devils seem to be leading the chase, although Barcelona have entered the race recently, looking for a long-term replacement for the aging Luis Suarez.
As for the Gunners, Unai Emery currently has Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette at his disposal, which puts the signing of Haaland low at his list of priorities.
Juventus and Real Madrid are both lurking in the shadows but seem to be focused on other agendas.
