Marvin Ducksch has admitted that moving to Borussia Dortmund would be a dream come true, amid claims that the Black and Yellows are considering a move for him.

It was reported earlier this month that Borussia Dortmund are thinking about signing Marvin Ducksch as a back-up option in attack for next season. The Werder Bremen striker has now had his say on the rumours.

"“It’s the club where I was allowed to take my first steps,” Ducksch said when asked about BVB’s interest on Wednesday. “I come from the city, my whole family still lives there. I follow every game. If I had the opportunity to play there, it would definitely be a dream come true.”"

Ducksch, who was born in Dortmund, joined BVB in 2002 and spent a total of 14 years on the club’s books before moving to FC St. Pauli in 2016. He primarily played for Borussia Dortmund II, but also made eight appearances for the first-team during the 2013/14 season.

The striker made his return to the Bundesliga this season after helping Werder Bremen win promotion from the second division. He is enjoying an impressive season with Ole Werner’s side and has 12 goals and seven assists to his name in 32 appearances across all competitions so far.

The 29 year old has a release clause in the region of 7.5 million euros in his contract, and could leave Werder Bremen in the summer. A number of other clubs in the Bundesliga have also been linked with a move for him in recent weeks.

It is currently unclear if Borussia Dortmund are seriously interested in signing Marvin Ducksch, or if they even want to bolster their attacking ranks in the summer. Squad planning for next season is already underway at BVB, and it will be interesting to see what moves they make in the transfer window this summer.
