Haller targeted as Haaland replacement


Borussia Dortmund are considering an approach for Ajax striker Sebastien Haller in the summer if the prolific Erling Haaland is sold.

Haaland has a €75m release clause in his contract with Dortmund that becomes active at the end of the season and there will be significant interest in his signature as Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City and others are expected to be in the market for a ‘number nine’.

The 21-year-old Norwegian has unbelievably scored 68 goals in 67 games since joining Dortmund less than two years ago, including 11 goals in eight games at the start of this season.

If Haaland is to move on, Dortmund will need to source a replacement. According to a SportBild report in Germany, ex-West Ham forward Haller has emerged on their radar.

The late blooming Frenchman made his name in the Eredivisie with Utrecht in his early twenties, before establishing that reputation during two years with Eintracht Frankfurt. A £40m transfer to West Ham followed in 2019, but he struggled to find his feet.
