A highly placed source at German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund says any bid for Manchester City Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho won’t involved star forward Pierre Emerick Aubameyang going the opposite direction.
Manchester City have reportedly offered the Nigerian in exchange plus cash for the Gabonese forward, who is a prime target for City manager Pep Guardiola this summer.
However a club insider revealed the club have put together a package for the signing of Iheanacho which doesn’t involve Aubameyang, insisting that any move by City for the Bundesliga top scorer won’t involve Iheanacho.
Also a close source to Iheanacho also told Owngoalnigeria.com that Dortmund interest in Iheanacho is independent of City’s proposed move for Aubameyang, as both players could move without necessarily going in the opposite direction.
Southampton sounded out Manchester City over his availability during the course of last week, but German side Hoffenheim have reportedly held talks with him and are presently locked in talks with City.
Dortmund will be hoping to steal a march on their Bundesliga rival as close sources revealed they will later this week make an official bid for the services of Iheanacho to Manchester City.
