Former Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger believes huge economic power will make Erling Haaland move to the Premier League next season.
Manchester City have been heavily linked with a move for a striker this summer, and Haaland was in their shortlist.
According to many reports Pep Guardiola’s side will try to secure a signing for the Norway international next summer.
And Wenger claims that the move is really likely to happen, as he told German publication Bild:
“I think that [Haaland’s move] will happen.
“The economic power of the Premier League is too strong. English football is dominant because it’s where the most money is. The best players always go the best way to make the most money.
“Haaland is likely to be the next high-profile goalscorer after Mbappe.
“He’s a super talent. His ambition, his will to score goals and the ability to fight in a duel [set him apart].
“He’s there and wants to win – there is something in him that is great for a striker.”
