Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot could make the move to Borussia Dortmund on a season-long loan.
The Portuguese spent the previous campaign with AC Milan on loan, registering 33 appearances in all competitions.
The Rossoneri have been keen on re-signing him this summer, but they have been put off by the £5 million loan fee.
Dortmund are now leading the hunt for the versatile full-back, but the deal won’t be solely dependent on him.
With the exits of Brandon Williams and Axel Tuanzebe on loan, the club have just one more right-back in Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The Red Devils are keen on landing Kieran Trippier‘s signature from Atletico Madrid. Dalot’s exit may depend on his arrival.
Atletico value Trippier at around £28m, but there is the optimism that they could land him for a lesser fee before the deadline.
The deals for Dalot and Trippier could go down to the wire. Trippier has the preference to join United despite Arsenal interest.
