Borussia Dortmund join Southampton and Hoffenheim in hunt for Manchester City forward – City Watch

City Watch

Borussia Dortmund are interested in signing 20-year-old Manchester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, according to a report by Joe Bernstein of the Mail on Sunday.

In their back page story of the weekend, the newspaper reported that Pep Guardiola may axe up to TWELVE players this summer in what could be the busiest transfer window ever at Manchester City.

And while much of the attention is on Pablo Zabaleta’s exit from the Etihad, which was made official last night by the club, the future of Iheanacho was also discussed. City are said to be open to offers for the youngster, who became the first in a long time to break into the first-team from the youth ranks, and has gone on to score 21 goals in 58 appearances.

Borussia Dortmund have already expressed an interest in signing Kelechi, who City are expected to request close to £20 million for should he leave on a permanent deal. A sale isn’t a sure thing yet, with Dortmund’s Bundesliga rivals Hoffenheim and Premier League side Southampton wanting him on loan.

The arrival of Gabriel Jesus has damaged Iheanacho’s hopes of succeeding at City, but even when the Brazilian was sidelined with a long-term injury, Pep Guardiola rarely selected the Nigerian and the writing could be on the wall for the Manchester City wonderkid.
