Emre Mor: Germans in pole position

Borussia Dortmund have completed the signing of Turkish wonderkid Emre Mor after beating out rivals Bayern Munich and Liverpool, the club has confirmed.

Turkish newspaper Sabah did state that the two Bundesliga sides were preparing serious offers for the attacking midfielder and it looks like a bid has proved fruitful after Dortmund confirmed their latest signing.

FC Nordsjaelland’s Mor was also last week linked with a move to Anfield with ESPN reporting that Jurgen Klopp was leading the chase for the 18-year-old Turkey international. Manchester United and Ajax had also been credited with an interest in the attacking midfielder.

The reports claimed Mor’s future was going to be resolved in the “next few days” with his Danish club looking for a transfer fee of between 10million and 15million euros.

Mor, who only made his full international debut last month, was the biggest surprise name to be included in Fatih Terim’s 23-man squad Euro 2016 squad and he will be the the third-youngest player in the European Championships in France behind Marcus Rashford and Renato Sanchez.

Mor has scored two goals and laid on two assists for Nordsjaelland in 13 appearances so far this season and the club seem resigned to seeing the youngster depart as long as their valuation is met.
