Nigerian descent Manuel Akanji eyeing Premier League move after rejecting Borussia Dortmund’s new contract extension.

The 26-year-old Switzerland international made a total of 29 appearances in the Bundesliga and Europe this campaign.

Akanji’s future at Westfalenstadion is uncertain as he has just over a year remaining on his contract with Borussia Dortmund.

According to The Hard Tackle reports that defender is expected to part ways with German giants during the summer transfer window.

Manchester United are planning to prioritise signing a center-back in the summer and Akanji could be among their targets.

Red Devils will have to battle Juventus for Nigerian descent with the Serie A side increasing the age of their current center-back pairing Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.

Akanji is eyeing up a new challenge after making a total of 155 appearances for Dortmund since joining the club in 2018 from Basel.
