Zinchenko poised for Dortmund switch

The agent of Ukranian midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko claims his client is on the verge of sealing a move to Bundesliga high-flyers Borussia Dortmund.

The 19-year-old, who is on the books of FC Ufa in the Russian Premier League, is a transfer target for several European clubs after a breakout season.

Ufa general manager recently revealed that Dortmund weren’t the only club showing an interest in the player, but it now appears a move to the Bundesliga is on the cards.

“I am almost certain that Oleksandr Zinchenko will move to Borussia Dortmund,” ProSports Management president German Tkachenko told Sport Express.

“However, it is still not sure whether they see him in the first team or in the reserve team.”

Zinchenko has made 17 starts and further five appearances from the bench this season, scoring two goals and bagging four assists.
