BVB are known for going under the radar and signing some hidden gems.
According to multiple reports emanating from Germany, Borussia Dortmund are eyeing Crystal Palace forward Junior Dixon. He has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
In five appearances this season for Crystal Palace Under 18, Dixon has managed to score seven goals and contributed with two assists.
The 17-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England.
Edin Terzic wants to sign a new forward and Dixon is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The Borussia Dortmund manager has kept an eye on Dixon for the last 12 months and he is impressed with the forward’s performances.
The 17-year-old will offer the Borussia boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Borussia Dortmund are stepping up their interest in Crystal Palace teen Junior Dixon. BILD says BVB have been watching Dixon over the long-term. While a January move isn’t being considered, BVB do have plans to go for Dixon at the end of the season. Dixon celebrates his 18th birthday in just under two weeks.”
Euro Football Rumours
The German giants will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Dixon to join the club.
Junior Dixon ideal fit for Borussia Dortmund?
If Dixon is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Dortmund.
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
Junior Dixon has all the skillset required to be a success story at Dortmund. Therefore, it makes sense for Terzic to step up his attempts to bring the England forward to Bundesliga side.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Dortmund.
BVB fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.
