Filippo Mane (18), is an Italy u19 international that joined from the Sampdoria academy and is further evidence of Dortmund’s elite youth scouting network. There is some worry for the ball playing defender however as continued injuries have hampered his development.  Despite this, Dortmund seem to be considering promoting Mane to the first team as the club's fourth choice center back.
