Erling Haaland has been told he would force himself into Liverpool's XI if they snapped him up.

That is the opinion of former Tottenham and Leeds United goalkeeper Paul Robinson, who believes he will end up at Barcelona or Real Madrid.

Haaland has been scoring goals for fun since the beginning of last season when he caught everyone's attention at RB Salzburg.

It led to a free-for-all for his signature in January, with Manchester United losing out to Borussia Dortmund.

And he has not slowed up, still putting in ludicrous stats after scoring 13 in 15 Bundesliga games.

This season he has carried on, netting six in six league matches as transfer interest in him garners once more.

Haaland's father, Alf-Inge, played his football in England where he had spells at Manchester City and Leeds.

And it is in the Yorkshire town where Erling was born, before moving to Norway at the age of three.

The 20-year-old has spoken about his admiration for the Premier League in the past and Robinson has stated that he hopes he sees the striker don the old colours of his father – but admitted Liverpool have a better chance.

“One day we will see Erling Haaland in the Premier League,” he told Football Insider. “Without a shadow of a doubt.

“I would love it to be at Leeds where he grew up watching his Dad play!

“I think Dortmund was a stepping stone before a move to the Premier League.

"I think we will see him in England and anybody given the opportunity to sign him would take that up.

“He would make himself fit into Liverpool’s starting eleven.

"A player of his quality and his ability starts wherever he goes but there will be a number of suitors for him.

“Whether it be Real Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool or any other top six club in the Premier League.

"If Dortmund where to sell him there would see quite a few takers.”
