Borussia Dortmund's love affair with Paris Saint-German academy products is set to quite possibly continue this summer with the club weighing up a move for 19 year old midfielder Ayman Kari. Kari has been on loan with FC Lorient this season, and considering the uncertainy surrounding his situation once his loan expires, it could open a window of opportunity for Die Schwarzgelben.

PSG's academy, as is often the case, needs no introduction when it comes to the type of talent they are known for producing. Christopher Nkunku, Kingsley Coman, and most recently Xavi Simons are all players that, having come from PSG's academy, eventually ended up in the Bundesliga and have been successful in their respective stints within Germany's top flight. Dortmund also fielded the likes of Dan-Axel Zagadou for many seasons who, had it not been for numerous serious injuries, could have been a mainstay at the club for many years.

As with many before him, Kari is also earmarked as a player with ample potential. In 10 starts this season he has one goal and one asssit whilst playing a more defensive role in the midfield. He excels in terms of his passing, tackling and ball control, all things that Dortmund could very much benefit from in both the short and long term. His numbers show a pass success completion of 87.5%, with the player also putting in 1.89 tackles, 0.95 interceptions and 2.01 blocks per 90. Kari has also shown that he can be quite tenacious as well as a comitted runner, with high work rate always something one can value quite highly, especially in a player so young.

While signing Kari would far from fix Dortmund's midfield struggles, bringing him in could certainly add to their depth and provide them with a young, defensive minded player they could help mold into a successful member of their squad. The player's contract is also up at the end of June this year, so he would be coming in on a free transfer, meaning that the club could take a chance on the youngster and reap massive rewards in terms of his performances in the future, all while not stretching the budget financially. In any case, a move for Kari could end up being a very low risk move with both player and club eventually benefitting substantially.
