Borussia Dortmund striker, Erling Haaland has emerged as one of the best young strikers in the world and the 20-year-old continues to score goals for fun as seen by his brace against Sevilla in the Champions League round of 16 first leg to help his side win 3-2.

Haaland's two strikes on the night ensured that he became the first player in Champions League history to score at least 17 goals in his first 13 appearances, while also scoring 10 goals for Dortmund in the competition in just seven games - the quickest a player has ever reached 10 goals for a single team in the competition, breaking Roy Makaay's record with Bayern Munich.

Since moving to Germany the striker has netted a staggering 41 goals in just 41 games for them, with his performances attracting interest from a number of top European clubs, including the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Barcelona.

It has been reported that the Norwegian has a clause in his contract which means that he could leave in the summer of 2022 if a club can meet his release clause and speculation is rife that the striker will decide to leave Dortmund if they do not qualify for the Champions League next season.
