Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is wanted by German giants Borussia Dortmund, according to The Sun.
The Bundesliga leaders have reportedly joined the race for the highly rated 21-year-old, who is also on the radar of Premier League duo Manchester City and Chelsea.
Palace, who rate their academy graduate at £40million, will struggle to hold on to the young defender in the summer as the financial muscle of Europe’s elite could pressure them into a deal.
A move to Germany would see the England Under-21 international link up with fellow Three Lions prospect Jadon Sancho, who has seriously impressed for Dortmund since arriving from Manchester City in 2017.
