Barcelona forward Paco Alcacer has reportedly edged closer to signing for Borussia Dortmund.
The 24-year-old has contributed 15 goals in all competitions during his two seasons at Camp Nou but remains a fringe member of Ernesto Valverde's first-team squad.
Dortmund, meanwhile, have been on the lookout for a striker to bolster their ranks all summer.
According to German outlet Bild, Dortmund will pay an initial €2.2m (£2m) loan fee for the season with an option to sign Alcacer for between €20m and €25m (£18m-£22.5m) next summer.
The report also claims that BVB will pay the Spanish hitman's entire €4m yearly salary for the duration of his loan spell.
Alcacer has been linked with a switch to Premier League side Watford and La Liga club Real Betis over the past few weeks.
