Aaron Wan-Bissaka wanted by Borussia Dortmund who threaten to steal Crystal Palace ace from under Chelsea and Man City’s noses in £40m transfer
The German giants have joined the race for the Crystal Palace full-back, who is on Manchester City’s radar for the summer.
Pep Guardiola will face serious competition for the £40million-rated star who is on the brink of an England call-up.
Dortmund are interested in the 21-year-old following in the footsteps of Jadon Sancho and becoming the latest Three Lions youngster to light up the Bundesliga.
Sancho faces Tottenham in the Champions League on Wednesday less than two years after leaving City with his first-team path blocked off.
Wan-Bissaka has enjoyed regular Premier League football since his breakthrough in Roy Hodgson’s team last season, alerting top clubs across Europe.
Chelsea have also been tracking his progress along with City but Dortmund are looking at a move for the youngster at the end of the season and adding to the English stars getting tempted abroad.
Wales international Rabbi Matondo made a £11.25million move to Schalke last month and Callum Hudson-Odoi was a target for Bayern Munich.
Hodgson said he would happily discuss Wan-Bissaka's form with England boss Gareth Southgate, who could hand him his first cap in next month's Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Speaking after Palace's 1-1 draw with West Ham, he said: "I’ll tell him what I think of the player. I’ll give him my honest opinion because it’s something he deserves to hear.
“At the moment he [Southgate] hasn’t done that. We’ve quite often talked about the English players that we have, and it has been on general terms.
"I’ll wait for that moment when the day comes and he actually says ‘right, I really want your serious opinion about Bissaka and how good he can possibly be at full senior international level’, and I’ll tell him what I think.
“If he ever does want to hear my honest opinion on the player, then I’ll certainly be happy to give it to him.
"I won’t be contacting him to give him an opinion and I’m certainly not making any claims for anybody, Bissaka or anyone else for an England place. I leave that totally and utterly up to the England coach.”
