According to Bild Borussia Dortmund have already made the decision to activate the option in Alcacer’s loan deal and buy him at the end of the season for 23€ million. Paco Alcacer would receive a contract until 2023 and double his current salary from 4€ million per year to 8€ million. There is no official confirmation from the club.
If Paco Alcacer continues to play like he has at the beginning of the season there is absolutely no doubt that BVB will buy him especially considering that he also commented on his desire to stay. However the season is still long and BVB should and probably will wait until the season is done. There is simply no rush for Dortmund, Zorc & Co. hold all the cards in this situation. In addition the new contract until 2023 (in case BVB does activate the option) isn’t technically new information, BVB already made that public when they signed him on loan.

Sergio Ramos and Marc Bartra also scored to give Spain a 4-0 victory.
