Sébastien Haller is the favourite to replace Erling Haaland at Borussia Dortmund

Ajax forward Sébastien Haller is the favourite to replace Erling Haaland at Borussia Dortmund, according to Patrick Berger

Dortmund’s board have agreed they want to sign the Ivorian international on a permanent deal rather than a loan. 

The centre forward is reported to cost around €35m. However, it’s believed that BVB will have to move on Manuel Akanji (26) in order to raise funds for the transfer. 

Haller is a more experienced professional at 27-years-old than the previous strikers who have been linked to replace Halaand’s spot at Dortmund. Some of these include Benjamin Šeško, Adam Hložek and Hugo Ekitike who are all 19-years-old. 

So far this season, Haller has scored 21 times and assisted on 7 occasions in 30 Eredivisie appearances.
