Erling Haaland says he is motivated by winning trophies. 

The Borussia Dortmund striker is one of world football's hottest properties with several big clubs believed to be interested in acquiring his signature.

Haaland has three years remaining on his contract at Signal Iduna Park, but it hasn't prevented suitors forming an orderly queue.

Rumours have been fuelled by his agent Mino Raiola - along with father, Alf-Inge - holding high profile meetings with representatives from Barcelona and Real Madrid in April.

"I have the clear expectation that Erling Haaland will play for us next year," Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said earlier this month.

Asked if those meetings with Barça or Real had him worried, Watzke told Sport Bild, "I think they know about the contract situation and our stance there as well.

"I am just totally relaxed. Nobody believed us with Jadon Sancho last summer until deadline day, and he's still with us today."

Dortmund won their final six Bundesliga games of the season under interim boss Edin Terzić to secure a return to the Champions League.

"Like I have said before, I am a big fan of the Champions League, and I think everybody knows that," Haaland told Jan-Aage Fjortoft.

"It was a relief to secure that spot. It was really important."

Asked about the speculation regarding his future, the 20-year old said, Well, I have a contract for a couple of good years, so I am respectful towards my contract."

In an interview for Viaplay, Fjortoft asked Haaland about his ambitions in the game with the ex-Salzburg striker saying, "I am a simple guy. When I like something, I just want to have more. Like I said before, when I score a goal I always chase the next goal.

"I have big dreams!"

He added, "I just won my first major trophy [DFB Pokal] and it was a great feeling, so I want to win trophies."
