Borussia Dortmund will reportedly do battle with Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion in their bid to sign Werder Bremen midfielder Thomas Delaney.

According to claims from German news outlet Bild, as reported by GGFN, Bundesliga giants Dortmund have made Delaney one of their targets ahead of the summer transfer window.

Delaney, who is now an established Denmark international, has been in good form this season and has only further increased his stock, with clubs of Dortmund’s calibre now eyeing a swoop.

It’s claimed by Bild that Peter Stoger’s side have already submitted a bid worth  €15 million for the midfielder, which could tempt Werder Bremen into selling their prized asset.

Brighton, however, will also present a lucrative next destination for Delaney, who could be granted the opportunity to flourish in the Premier League.
