Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer is on the verge of signing for on loan Borussia Dortmund after undergoing a medical on Tuesday German media reported.

Dortmund said that they have an option to buy Alcacer for 25m euros (£22.7m) at the end of the season.

The Argentina worldwide believes that the 24-year-old Spanish football star should go elsewhere where he would get regular playing times.

The deal was agreed with Barcelona and was only lacking the OK of the player.

Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund have announced the signing of a striker from FC Barcelona in their attempt to fill the void left by African superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
