Borussia Dortmund scrutinizes Ligue 1 for Sébastien Haller replacement

What’s next after this ad

This is very sad news that the Ivorian striker has to face. Arrived at Borussia Dortmund this summer after a sacred season at Ajax, punctuated by 21 huts in the Eredivisie, the 28-year-old player learned that he was suffering from a testicular tumor. “Thank you all for your many messages of support and affection since yesterday’s announcement. My family and I thank you. I will now focus on my recovery to come back stronger”he wrote on these social networks this weekend.

And even if in these cases football is not the priority and health comes first, inevitably, all this pushes the leaders of Borussia Dortmund to review their plans. The former West Ham will thus be absent for, a priori, several months, and it is therefore necessary to react and find a new reference for the point of the attack, he who was to replace Erling Haaland.

Two Ligue 1 strikers in the sights

And obviously, it is in France that the Germans want to recruit. According Sky Sport Germany and several Italian media, Mauro Icardi is one of the names followed by the management of BVB, who could force for a loan. The 29-year-old Argentinian is unwanted in Paris and this opportunity could be a boon for the Parisian management who are struggling to get rid of him.

That’s not all, since on his side, Sports1 indicates that Dortmund are also thinking of Arkadiusz Milik, the OM striker. The latter is not considered essential in Marseille, and a good deal could convince Pablo Longoria to let go. In addition to these two players, Edinson Cavani, Edin Dzeko, Krzysztof Piatek and Jhon Cordoba are also part of the list of potential replacements for Sébastien Haller. To be continued…
