The first relevant paper that comes to mind mind w.r.t. your question is:         Seifart, Frank. 2015. Direct and indirect affix borrowing. Language 91(3). 511–532.

It’s a beautiful paper and I’d start from them. 

You might also find some clues in a couple of publications of mine. See my website: https://francescogardani.wordpress.com/publications/, in particular this one: Gardani, Francesco. 2021. On how morphology spreads. �Word Structure �14(2). 129–147. DOI: 10.13140/RG.2.2.29101.51683 [ <https://www.euppublishing.com/doi/full/10.3366/word.2021.0184> Open Access]

Dear Sergey,
In Chaco, where lexical borrowing among the native languages is very limited, most of the languages share a nominal plural marker whose shape is lateral + V (Comrie et al. 2010: 99-103; Campbell and Grondona 2012: 645; Ciucci 2014: 25).
All the best.
