Striker star Erling Haaland is still under contract with Borussia Dortmund until the summer of 2024, but not a day goes by without new speculation and rumors as to where the 21-year-old Norwegian will move next summer.

In particular Real Madrid, the two Manchester clubs United and City, Chelsea FC, Paris Saint-Germain and FC Bayern are always seen as new employers.

Because the goal-scoring striker, who scored an incredible 68 goals in 67 games for BVB, is available for a comparatively low transfer fee in the summer. Thanks to a release clause in his contract, he can Dortmund for
75 million euros left.
For comparison: According to “Transfermarkt.de” its market value is 150 million euros.

But should Haaland actually leave BVB in the summer, those responsible at the club will already have their sights set on a successor who is no stranger to the Bundesliga.

As reported by “Sport Bild”, Borussia has its eye on Sébastian Haller from Ajax Amsterdam as Haaland replacement. Like Haaland, the 1.90-meter-tall attacker is a real striker from the penalty area and is not only physically strong, but also very well trained technically. He already demonstrated this during his time at Eintracht Frankfurt (2019 to 2021). In 77 games for Eintracht, he scored 33 times and prepared 19 goals.

And also in the current season Haller is extremely accurate. In the Dutch league he scored five times in eight games and in the Champions League he leads the scoring list with five goals after two games. He impressed especially on the first day of the premier class with four goals against Sporting Lisbon.

Ironically, next Tuesday there will be a duel with BVB in Amsterdam.

Haller has no exit clause

But the 27-year-old wouldn’t really fit into the black and yellow transfer concept, because BVB primarily focuses on the development of young talents in order to then sell them on at a profit – just like at Haaland.

To make matters worse, Haller will probably not be available below its market value of 27 million euros. “I don’t know Dortmund’s plans. With Sébastien’s class, I can’t rule out that he might be interesting for BVB. What I can say: it would be very expensive “Said Haller’s coach Erik ten Haag to “Sport Bild”. Because the international of Ivory Coast has no release clause at Ajax.
