Manuel Akanji: Premier League outfit offered chance to sign Nigerian born defender

Borussia Dortmund have reportedly offered Switzerland international Manuel Akanji to Arsenal.

The Nigerian born defender has spent the last four years in Germany since arriving from Basel, but his time at Dortmund could be drawing to a close.

Niklas Sule and Nico Schlotterbeck have already joined the German club this summer, with their arrivals set to result in Akanji’s departure.

According to Football London, Dortmund have offered Arsenal the chance to sign Akanji, with the Swiss defender keen on a move to the Premier League.

The report states that the Bundesliga side are looking to receive £21m for the centre-back, but the asking price could drop with Akanji entering the final year of his current contract.
