Noni Madueke has said that he is honoured by reports linking him with a move to Borussia Dortmund as a potential replacement for Jadon Sancho.

It was reported by BILD earlier this month that Borussia Dortmund are considering making a move for highly rated PSV Eindhoven forward Noni Madueke. Now the 19 year old has reacted to the rumours, saying that it is an honour to be linked with a club like Dortmund. In an interview with ESPN, Madueke said:

"“I’ve heard that rumour, I’m not gonna lie. Its like an honour to be linked to a club like that and its nice that they see me as a successor to Jadon, who is a great player. But I don’t really go too deep into those things. I’m more focused on doing my best at the moment and just seeing what the future holds.”"

Madueke, who joined PSV Eindhoven on a free transfer from Tottenham Hotspur in 2018, is said to be attracting the interest of a number of big clubs around Europe. In addition to Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Leicester City and Leeds United are also thought to be interested in signing him.

BILD claimed in their report that Madueke would be available for a fee of around 15 million euros this summer. The England U-21s international has just over three years left on his current PSV contract.

Madueke has scored nine goals and provided eight assists in 31 appearances for PSV Eindhoven this season. He is cable of playing on either wing and also through the middle.

If Borussia Dortmund are to sign Noni Madueke this summer, he would likely be a successor to Jadon Sancho, who is once again being linked with a move away from the club. Reports have claimed in recent weeks that the BVB bosses would be willing to sell him for a fee of around 100 million euros this summer. But whether interested clubs can afford him remains to be seen.
