With Manuel Akanji potentially out for the rest of the season, Borussia Dortmund have possibly found a replacement for him in Argentina - Boca Juniors' Leonardo Balerdi.
Boca Juniors president Daniel Angelici has confirmed the Bundesliga club's interest and now wants to meet with representatives from Dortmund who are reportedly ready to pay €16 million for the 19-year-old centre-back this month.
"I told his representative that we don't want to sell the player. But we have to face reality," Angelici told La Red and added:
"I will meet the Dortmund leadership. I'll tell them the club's position, and then we'll see how it ends."
Balerdi has made five appearances for Boca Juniors.
