Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre has confirmed that 17-year-old Giovanni Reyna will be part of his squad for Saturday's Bundesliga game against Augsburg.

"He's not only a candidate, but will definitely be in the squad," Favre told reporters at the pre-match press conference.


Reyna, 17, has made a positive impression following his move from the New York City FC Academy in the summer of 2019.

"'Gio' already made a very good impression last summer. He has come a long way physically, considering he's just 17 years old," BVB sporting director Michael Zorc said.

At the press conference, Favre also said that the club's new signing Erling Haaland could possibly feature against Augsburg.
