Borussia Dortmund have emerged as main candidates to sign Bayer Leverkusen defender Omer Toprak, according to Bild.
With Mats Hummels having become the latest footballer to make the dreaded journey from Signal-Iduna Park to Allianz Arena, the Millionaires are looking to sign a high-quality centre-back as his replacement.
Bild has learned that Borussia have made Bayer Leverkusen’s Omer Toprak their number one target and they are ready to offer €20 million for his services.
This means that die Werkself could jump at the opportunity to cash in on their star player this summer, considering that a €12 million release clause will become active in a year’s time.
Bayer Leverkusen officials have so far refused to comment on the Borussia Dortmund interest, but everything suggests that BVB stand a good chance of wrapping up the deal in the coming weeks.
Omer Toprak, 26, has spent last five years at Bay Arena, making 129 Bundesliga appearances and scoring 4 goals.
