Kasper Dolberg, the highly-rated Ajax attacker, is one of Europe’s finest young talents and he’s got himself on Manchester United’s radar this season, after scoring an impressive 11 goals in 28 games- earning himself a call-up to Denmark’s senior squad.
A host of Premier League sides are said to have sent representatives to check out the forward, including Everton and Manchester City, but the interest is now solely from English shores- as German giants Borussia Dortmund are also keen.
Faced with the daunting prospect of losing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Dortmund will find it difficult to find a replacement but Dolberg has the potential to fill the void- and Thomas Tuchel’s side could swoop in January.
With Aubameyang away at the African Cup of Nations with hosts Gabon, Dortmund return from the Bundesliga’s winer break without a recognised centre-forward, which affects their chances of finishing in the Champions League spots.
You read about him scoring 11 goals in 28 games right? Well, the lad is just 19- and he was identified by the same man who tipped off Ajax to the likes of Christian Eriksen and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. So yeah, he’s a big deal.
That man, John Steen Olsen, is full of praise for young Dolberg, previously stating:
“Kasper is an extraordinary talent. I knew he would be a perfect player for Ajax. Kasper has exceptional qualities: speed, technique, intelligent play and good in the air.”
With a player of that ability, it’s unlikely Dolberg will remain in the Eredivisie for too long.
