Borussia Dortmund eyes African replacement amid Sébastien Haller uncertainty

Borussia Dortmund is contemplating the departure of Ivorian striker Sébastien Haller, with speculation rife over a potential African replacement.

Haller’s tenure at Dortmund, intended to fill the void left by Erling Haaland’s departure to Manchester City two years ago, has been marred by adversity.

Following his recruitment from Ajax, the Elephants’ center forward faced a formidable challenge with the diagnosis of testicular cancer and subsequent injuries, including a persistent ankle issue this season.

These health setbacks sidelined him for almost a year, providing ample opportunity for competitor Niclas Füllkrug to assert dominance.

Reports from L’Equipe suggest that Dortmund is weighing the prospect of parting ways with Haller, whose contract extends until June 2026.

The club purportedly eyes Randal Kolo Muani from PSG as a primary target, although resistance from both the Parisian outfit and the player himself complicates matters.

As an alternative, Serhou Guirassy emerges as Dortmund’s contingency plan, according to sports outlets.

Guirassy, the Guinean striker, boasts an impressive track record with 26 goals in the league (28 in all competitions) for Stuttgart, a feat instrumental in securing the team’s third-place finish in the Bundesliga.

His contract, also slated to conclude in June 2026, features a departure clause estimated at approximately 18 million euros, making him an enticing prospect for Dortmund.

Should Dortmund opt to activate this clause, Guirassy would embark on a new chapter at Signal Iduna Park, marking a significant milestone in his career trajectory.

The potential acquisition underscores Dortmund’s commitment to bolstering their offensive lineup ahead of the upcoming season, as they seek to maintain competitiveness in the Bundesliga and beyond.
