Sébastien Haller to Borussia Dortmund a done deal

According to Sport1, Sébastien Haller could be announced as Borussia Dortmund’s latest signing as soon as this week.

It’s reported that Dortmund and Ajax have now come to an agreement on the price for the forward.

The Ivory Coast international will cost BVB €35m including bonuses. 

The Ajax striker had previously agreed to a five-year deal with the Bundesliga side making the transfer all the more likely.  

The transfer saga first started with Ajax demanding around €40m for the 27-year-old but are now satisfied with Dortmund’s proposal. 

For months BVB bosses Hans-Joachim Watzke and the new sports director Sebastian Kehl have been searching for a replacement for Erling Haaland before agreeing on Haller as their number one transfer target.

A couple of weeks back Kehl hinted that Haller was their priority by explaining that they had to: “compensate for the power and physicality that we are losing through Erling Haaland.”

All parties are confident that the transfer will happen this week.
