Dortmund keeping tabs on Mario Fernandes

Borussia Dortmund are pondering a summer move for CSKA Moscow defender Mario Fernandes, according to Izvestia.

The Bundesliga champions want to sign a new right-sided defender to provide competition for Lukasz Piszczek and have made the Brazilian full-back their number one target.

They even attempted to purchase the player during the January transfer window, but CSKA Moscow officials decided to postpone negotiations for next summer.

CSKA director of public relations Sergei Aksenov is adamant there have been no official proposals for the talented defender, but states that any offers will be considered.

“The interest in Fernandes does not surprise us, but so far we have received no concrete proposals,” Aksenov told Izvestia.

“I can assure you that in case such proposals do arrive, they will be considered by the club.”

Mario Fernandes, 22, only joined CSKA Moscow last summer, but has already done enough to attract attention of top European clubs.

He has made the right-back position his own, making 18 Russian Premier League appearances for the club.

The Brazilian defender has a contract until June 2017 at CSKA, but it appears he won’t be staying in Moscow for much longer.
