John Arne Riise has urged Liverpool to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

Haaland, who joined BVB in January 2020, has a reported release clause of £64million from next summer, which is expected to cause bunch of offers from European giants.

And former Liverpool full-back Riise is hopeful the Reds will be among those fighting for his fellow countryman’s transfer.

“Obviously I would love to have him at Liverpool, because he’s an unbelievable player,”  Riise told Goal.


“He’s in great form, and I think he would suit (Jurgen) Klopp’s style of football. I also think he would love Liverpool as a club.

The Norwegian fears if he joins rivals Manchester City it could make them ‘close to unbeatable’.

“But if City got him, wow! You talk about unbeatable teams, then that would be close!’


The 41-year-old is also unsure whether the Reds have enough finances for the 21-year-old, but claims it would be money well spent.

“Whoever gets Haaland, whether it’s next season or whatever, is going to be an unbelievably strong team for many years to come,” he added.


“I don’t know if Liverpool have the chance to sign him, but if they do then please do, because that would be unbelievable for the club, or for any club that signs him.”


“I hope Haaland comes to the Premier League. I hope he comes to Liverpool, obviously, but for Norwegian football it is important to get a player like that in the Premier League.”
