Well we knew it was coming.

Borussia Dortmund have announced the permanent signing of star striker Paco Alcacer until 2023.

Paco was loaned from FC Barcelona this summer with an option to buy for 21 million Euros. While he struggled at Barca he has been on fire with BVB since his loan deal. €21 million is a great deal for a striker who has scored 9 goals in 400 minutes so far this year. While Dortmund had until the summer to activate this deal, its a great show of confidence they activated it so early.

With his permanent transfer Dortmund have a great option upfront for years to come. While he has struggled with injury issues this year his contributions have been massive for Dortmund’s top of table run. When he returns to full fitness we may see some truly amazing work from him, especially when he has Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho feeding him so many perfect passes.

Welcome to Dortmund Paco!
