Borussia Dortmund is largely preparing for the upcoming transfer window, ie for the summer during which they will most likely be left without Erling Haaland. Yesterday, the German media wrote about one of the candidates to replace the gigantic Norwegian - Karim Adeyemi - but the 19-year-old from Salzburg has serious competition.
If we look at the dimensions of perhaps the main favorite, assuming that in Westphalia they want to replace Haaland with a physically approximately dominant striker. Sport Bild states that Hans Joachim Watzke and his associates have been looking towards Amsterdam for some time, where Sebastien Haller(27) completely rehabilitated his career in the Ajax jersey.
After the explosion in Eintracht (in tandem with Luka Jović), the French striker went to West Ham for 50,000,000 euros, but as he did not manage in the Premier League, an express departure followed. Ajax accepted him with open arms (although they paid very nicely - 22,500,000), brought him back to life, and this one began to be paid to them many times over.
Only since the start of the current season in 11 games, Haller has scored 10 goals, half of which were in the Champions League.
Ten Haag on the transfer
Sebastien Haller is similar to Haaland in style and physique. He is not that fast, but there could be no doubt that he could be an adequate replacement.
Especially since he doesn't need a period of getting used to the Bundesliga. Now, desires are one thing, reality quite another. Ajax coach Eric ten Haag recently said that none of his players have a release clause and that there will be no selling after the great results ...
"I don't know about Dortmund's plans ... With the class that Haller owns, there is no doubt that he can be interesting for such a club. What I can say is that it would be a very expensive operation for them," said the experienced expert.
Obviously, Ajax wants to take huge money from their players this time as well, but of course, no one blames them for that, and they should be respected, considering that they are experts in transfer policy. We know what kind of experts work at Ajax and what kind of talents Ajax has produced in the history of the club, so it is not surprising that this time they want to take a lot of money from the player. We’ll see if Dortmund have enough money to meet Ajax’s demands
