Borussia Dortmund to swoop in for highly rated English starlets

Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund is planning a double swoop for English starlets Bukayo Saka and Jude Bellingham.

The German side is known for nurturing careers of talented youngsters with England winger Jadon Sancho blossoming into one of the world’s most feared attacking threats.

Erling Braut Haaland was the latest teenager to call the Westfalenstadion his home, though unlike Sancho, the Norwegian hitman may not even last one full season in Germany after the latest transfer developments.

According to Team Talk, Dortmund are tracking 18-year-old Arsenal starlet Saka. The Englishman has burst onto the scene this season, notching three goals and nine assists as he quickly established himself as a crucial component in Mikel Arteta’s starting eleven.

Operating primarily as a full-back but equally adept anywhere down the entire left flank, Saka has blossomed into becoming one of the country’s fastest rising stars.

Saka’s contract of £3,000 per week at the Emirates expires in the summer of 2021, and Arsenal are understandably keen to extend and improve it with all haste.

Another starlet on Dortmund’s radar is Man Utd target 16-year-old Birmingham City youngster Jude Bellingham.

Bellingham has already broken through into the Blues’ starting eleven despite his young age.

Dortmund are described by English publication the Mirror as ‘favourites’ to land Bellingham, however, though they will face a stern test in attempting to hold off the advances of Man Utd
