Borussia Dortmund are reportedly chasing the signature of a Barcelona striker, which has a knock-on effect on a Liverpool forward.
According to Catalan-based newspaper Sport, the Bundesliga side have found an agreement with Barca for the loan signing of Paco Alcacer.
The clubs have agreed on the formula of the deal: an initial season-long loan which will cost BVB €2.5million, with Dortmund having the option to make the deal permanent for €25m at the end of the season.
All that is missing now is the player’s blessing for the deal to go through, but with Ernesto Valverde not calling him up for Barcelona’s opening two LaLiga games, he is understood to be leaning towards accepting the move.
However, Dortmund have issued an ultimatum to the striker for his decision, having given the former Valencia man 48 hours to make a call.
The latest reports back up claims that Divock Origi’s chances of leaving Liverpool before the end of the transfer window seem to have ended.
The Reds asking price for the striker is £27million and they are refusing to budge on that price.
The Liverpool Echo claims that Borussia Dortmund are are unwilling to meet Liverpool’s demands and instead preferred to take the Belgium international on a season-long loan.
