Borussia Dortmund seal Ginter transfer?

Published Add your comment

Borussia Dortmund are reported to have completed their second piece of transfer business in a matter of days with the supposed capture of Arsenal and Manchester United target Matthias Ginter from Freiburg.

The Bundesliga club earlier this week moved to complete the signing of Adrian Ramos to soften the blow that will be dealt when Robert Lewandowski leaves for Bayern Munich. And now, according to Bild, Arsenal and Manchester United will miss out on Ginter, who will join Dortmund for €8 million.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was reported to have sent his chief scout Steve Rowley to watch the Ginter in action this season, with a view to making a formal approach to bring the centre-back to the Emirates Stadium.

Ginter, meanwhile, had been identified by David Moyes as a potential acquisition for Manchester United as he looks to bolster a defensive unit that will lost Nemanja Vidic this summer and, quite possibly, Rio Ferdinand too.

But it would appear that it is Jurgen Klopp to have won out in pursuit of Ginter, although there has yet to be official confirmation from Borussia Dortmund that the 20-year-old Germany international will move to the Westfalenstadion.
