Erling Braut Haaland has signed for Borussia Dortmund for a reported $23.5 million.

The Norwegian teenager has been on fire for RB Salzburg in Austria and the UEFA Champions League this season, scoring 29 goals in 27 games in all competitions including eight goals in six UCL group stage games.

Dortmund revealed that Haaland, 19, has signed a contract until 2024 as the German giants keep their reputation of attracting the top young players in Europe intact.

Haaland had been linked with moves to Napoli, Manchester United, RB Leipzig and others, but Dortmund seems like the perfect place for him to develop his game as they need a central striker to take the pressure off Paco Alcacer and make the most of the numerous goalscoring chances the likes of Marcos Reus, Jadon Sancho and Thorgan Hazard create.

Haaland may still end up in the Premier League in the years to come but for now the powerful Norway international is in a really good place.
