Yunus Malli: Linked with move from Mainz

Borussia Dortmund are interested in signing reported Tottenham target Yunus Malli from Mainz, according to reports in Germany.

The Mainz playmaker is drawing admiring glances from across the continent this summer, with reports on Thursday claiming Spurs had sent scouts to check on the Turkey international.

But widespread reports in Germany on Friday claim Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel wants to bring the attacking midfield to the club in January, with a deal worth 12million euros plus striker Adrian Ramos believed to be on the table for Mainz.

Mainz head coach Martin Schmidt has said Malli will be with the club for the start of the second half of the season, which resumes after the winter break next week.
