German giants Borussia Dortmund are hot on the trail of FC Basel defender Manuel Akanji, Bild can reveal.
The Millionaires are in the market for defensive reinforcements and the 22-year-old is one of the players they are looking at.
However, latest reports suggest that Liverpool are also keen, while Blick claims FC Basel want €20 million for his services.
The Swiss giants will probably wait until the summer before cashing on on their star player as they expect him to shine at the 2018 World Cup.
Akanji managed to nail down a regular starting berth in the Switzerland national team, helping the Rossocrociati keep two clean sheets in the play-off vs Northern Ireland.
