Paco Alcacer has left Barcelona and completed his loan move to Borussia Dortmund.
The 24-year-old Spaniard joined the Catalan club in 2016 on a five-year contract and despite playing limited games, played an important part in their double success this season, scoring a total of 15 goals in his 50 appearances since joining.
Having struggled for game time behind the likes of Luis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho – the striker has now decided on a move elsewhere.
Heavy links to Bundesliga side Dortmund have been rife over the last seven days and it is now confirmed that a deal has been agreed between the two clubs over a €2m loan agreement for the season, with an option to sign him permanently for €20m next summer.
He will now link up with his new team-mates and could feature in the league game against Hannover on Friday evening.
Despite Alcacer’s lack of playing time at the Camp Nou – boss Ernesto Valverde may opt to look for a replacement, having utilised the Spaniard in the Copa del Rey and in games where Suarez has been rested.
Alcacer, who missed out on a World Cup place this month – scored 42 times in 125 appearances for Valencia before his move to the league winners.
