Sébastien Haller to Borussia Dortmund is a done deal with the Ivory Coast international to undergo his medical on Thursday, according to Sport1‘s Patrick Berger.
For months BVB bosses Hans-Joachim Watzke and new sporting director Sebastian Kehl have been searching for a replacement for Erling Haaland before agreeing on Haller as their number one transfer target.
Dutch champions Ajax accepted Borussia Dortmund’s €35m offer (€31m + €4m) for the 28-year-old, who could be presented as a BVB player later this week. As reported by Sky Germany‘s Sven Westerschulze, the Ivorian forward has agreed a four-year deal until 2026.
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.”
Last season Haller scored 21 goals and provided seven assists in 31 Eredivisie appearances as he led Ajax to the league title.
