Sebastien Haller, a striker for Borussia Dortmund, will miss several months of action as a result of chemotherapy for a malignant testicular tumor, according to the Bundesliga team.
The tumor was found during training camp, and the Ivory Coast international underwent surgery last week.
“The utmost care is now being given to Sebastien. The likelihood of recovery is quite high “Sebastian Kehl, the sporting director for Dortmund, made a statement.
“Our thoughts are with him during this trying time. We wish him and his family much courage and optimism.”
Erling Haaland left for Manchester City, and Haller was brought in to replace him. Haller was signed from Ajax earlier in July.
Dortmund will consequently be looking for a new striker as they now only have 17-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko in their lineup.
On August 6, Dortmund will face Bayern Leverkusen in the league opener.
