Paco Alcacer joined Borussia Dortmund from Barcelona in a permanent deal, the German club announced on Friday.
Paco Alcacer joined BVB in the summer in an initial loan move with an option to buy, and the 25-year-old has impressed with nine goals in just eight appearances so far.
That convinced the Bundesliga side to push through the €21million (£18.5m) deal – plus €5m in possible add-ons – for the striker and he has signed a five-year contract with the Dortmund club.
“Paco is here for good!”” the club wrote in a tweet on Friday, alongside the hashtag #Alcacer2023.
Alcacer spent two seasons at Barcelona after signing from Valencia in 2016, but saw his opportunities limited at Camp Nou.
“We have informed FC Barcelona today that we will take up option,” Dortmund’s sporting director, Michael Zorc, told the club’s official website .
“Paco is wholeheartedly with us, he has quickly integrated and has become an integral part of our squad.
“He is a striker of high footballing quality and has already decided some important games for us.
“We look forward to many more goals and assists from Paco in the coming years.”
“I am very happy in Dortmund, at BVB and in this wonderful team,” Alcacer said after seeing his future resolved.
“Borussia Dortmund was and is exactly the right place for me. I will do everything I can to say thank you for your trust in my performances!”
He scored 15 goals in 50 appearances for the Catalan club.
