Transfer news: Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea and Manchester City all keen on veteran Swiss defender Stephan Lichtsteiner

23 Aug

Borussia Dortmund have joined Chelsea and Manchester City in the summer scramble for Stephan Lichtsteiner.


The 32-year-old is entering the final year of his contract at Juventus and he is ready to jump ship following the arrival of Dani Alves.

Chelsea and Manchester City have been linked with the 82-cap Switzerland international all summer and they are reportedly considering late swoops for him.

But, according to Premium Sport, the Premier League pair will now have to battle off interest from Borussia Dortmund to get their man.

The German side are in the market for a right-back and have been alerted to Lichtsteiner’s availability.

Juventus are happy for the veteran defender to stay and see out the final year of his contract in Turin, but will sanction a move for around £5m if he demands to leave.
