Dortmund ‘agree €16m deal’ for Boca midfielder Leonardo Balerdi

The 19-year-old is set to sign a four-year deal next week before joining up with his new team mates

Borussia Dortmund have reportedly agreed a €16m fee with Boca Juniors for midfielder Leonardo Balerdi.

The 19-year-old has been tracked by a number of top-level European clubs after he burst onto the scene in Argentina last year.

However several sources, including SportBild, have claimed that a deal is now done which would see the teenager join the Bundesliga giants this month.

Balerdi is set to sign a four-year contract in the coming days with his medical in the pipeline for early next week.
