Dortmund sign Haller as Haaland replacement

Borussia Dortmund has completed the signing of Ajax striker Sebastien Haller on a four-year deal worth a reported €36million.

The 28-year-old joins the Bundesliga side following the sale of Erling Haaland to Manchester City.

Dortmund also landed exciting forward Karim Adeyemi from RB Salzburg earlier in the transfer window.

After a disappointing stint in the Premier League with West Ham, Haller excelled in the Netherlands with Ajax during a prolific 18-month spell that included 11 goals in just eight Champions League appearances in the 2021-22 season.

That included a four-goal haul in Ajax’s first group-stage match against Sporting.

And goals in both of their fixtures against Dortmund.

He scored in all but one of Ajax’s Champions League matches.

The exception being a 1-0 defeat to Besiktas in the second leg of the last 16.

Dortmund confirmed Haller’s arrival on their official website on Wednesday, with the Ivory Coast international to take Haaland’s number nine shirt from this coming season.

Dortmund’s new sports director Sebastian Kehl said:

“We are happy that we were able to sign Sebastien Haller.

“A seasoned centre-forward who recently caused a sensation in the Champions League.

“But who also knows the Bundesliga in particular and has already proven his class and high finishing quality there.

“The overall package is very promising. Sebastien has a high physical presence and is also very resilient physically.

“His experience can give our young players support and stability on the offensive.

“In the talks, he clarified that he would like to achieve something with BVB.”

Dortmund began the new season with a DFB-Pokal clash against 1860 Munich on July 26, with their Bundesliga campaign starting at home against Bayer Leverkusen on August 6.
