Ajax striker Sebastien Haller flew to Germany on Thursday to undergo a medical before signing for Borussia Dortmund as a replacement for Erling Haaland.
Haller was picked up by Dortmund officials after landing at the city’s airport, from where he was taken for a physical.
The 28-year-old Ivory Coast international is reportedly ready to sign a four-year deal with Borussia Dortmund to replace Haaland, who has joined Premier League champions Manchester City.
German daily newspaper Bild reports that Haller’s move from Ajax will cost Bundesliga runners-up Dortmund around 31 million euros ($32.5 million), including bonuses.
Haller was in top form in the Champions League last season, scoring 11 goals in eight matches, including four in a 5-1 win over Sporting Lisbon in Ajax’s first group match.
The Dutch champions have lost their last 16 matches, but Haller has scored 21 goals in 31 games in the Eredivisie.
