According to the Telegraph, Haaland would be open to holding talks over a potential switch to the European champions.
The 20-year-old frontman is believed to be demanding around £300,000-a-week to sign on the dotted line.
Tuchel is prioritising signing a new striker this summer and knows he can’t rely on the misfiring Timo Werner.
The German boss is also looking into the possibility of offering Tammy Abraham in a player-plus-cash transfer for Haaland.
They value their academy graduate at around £40m.
