Rumour Roundup: Borussia Dortmund linked with moves for Barcelona right-back and PSG teenager

The transfer window is set to open in 10 days time, and Borussia Dortmund are being linked with two players in the latest rumours.

Borussia Dortmund show interest in Barcelona right-back

Barcelona are looking to sell highly rated full-back Emerson this summer, and Borussia Dortmund have expressed the most interest in signing him, according to Mundo Deportivo. Emerson, who is currently on loan at Real Betis, is also said to be attracting the interest of Premier League sides Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Newcastle United.

Mundo Deportivo claim that Borussia Dortmund are looking at Emerson as a replacement for Achraf Hakimi. However, the report fails to take into account the fact that the Black and Yellows already have Mateu Morey, as well as new signing Thomas Meunier in their ranks.

Bundesliga giants chasing PSG teenager

According to RMC Sport, Bundesliga heavyweights Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, as well as RB Leipzig are said to be chasing the signature of highly rated Paris St. Germain defender El Chadaille Bitshiabu. The 15 year old is already training with the PSG U-19s, and is regarded as one of their brightest prospects.

The report claims that all three clubs have made concrete offers for Bitshiabu’s signature. While PSG are also trying to get him to sign an extension, which would turn into a professional contract when he turns 16. His entourage have told RMC that the chances of him staying in the French capital are currently 50-50.

PSG have lost a number of highly rated youngsters to the Bundesliga in recent years, including Dan Axel Zagadou, Moussa Diaby, Christopher Nkunku, and most recently Tanguy Kouassi.
