Dortmund want Hugo Ekitike to replace Erling Haaland

As reported by Le10Sport, with the departure of their Norwegian striker Erling Haaland highly likely this summer, Borussia Dortmund are looking to Ligue 1 for a replacement. 

Indeed, Reims’ 19-year-old striker Hugo Ekitike is of significant interest to the Bundesliga side. Despite relatively minimal game time this season after breaking through in the autumn, Ekitike has nine league goals so far this term and was subject to widespread English interest in January.

West Ham bid €25m but they were rejected, as were Newcastle who surpassed the €30m mark, bonuses included. It’s likely Dortmund would have to exceed both offers to convince the club to sell.
