Family member arrives London ahead of move in January to Arsenal

In-demand striker Erling Braut Haaland has reportedly visited Arsenal’s training ground as speculation mounts over his future.

Norwegian ace Haaland has emerged as one of Europe’s most wanted talents after his prolific goalscoring exploits for Red Bull Salzburg, particularly in the Champions League.

Manchester United are believed to be at the front of the queue to land Haaland, 19, as they plot their move.

But Sport Bild claim Arsenal also have a significant level of interest.

They say Haaland and father Alf-Inge Haaland, who previously played for Manchester City and Leeds, have already made a personal visit to Arsenal’s training ground to learn more about the club and check out the facilities at London Colney.

There have previously been claims Alf-Inge has paid a similar visit to Carrington to see what Manchester United can offer.

But Sport Bild also claim he is advising his son to head to the Bundesliga amid interest from Bayern Munich before he moves on to the Premier League.

There are also claims that RB Leipzig, who share owners with current club Red Bull Salzburg, will be offered the chance to sign Haaland for a cut-price fee of just £25.7m, much less than the £85m fee quoted to other parties.

Arsenal are at risk of losing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette if they do not secure a return to Champions League football.

With the duo failing to commit their long-term futures to the club, the Gunners could pursue a move for Haaland if one of them looks set to depart.
