Liverpool, Arsenal And Man United Battle To Sign Dortmund Winger

Liverpool, Arsenal And Man United Battle To Sign Dortmund Winger

Liverpool are set to join Man United and Arsenal in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jacob Blaszczykowski.

The 29-year-old has been at Dortmund since 2007, but is now looking to leave the Westfalenstadion as his opportunities have been limited due to injury and the form of Marco Reus and fellow Liverpool-linked midfielder Henrik Mkhitaryan.

According to the TalkSport, the Reds are "considering a move" to bring Blaszczykowski to Anfield. Manchester United and Arsenal are also considering a move for the winger, with a fee of around £10m expected to be enough to sign the Poland international.

Blaszczykowski is known for his blistering pace and his incredible versatility. He's also notched 32 goals in 252 appearances for Dortmund but hasn't featured in the opening three matches of the Bundesliga season.
