BVB is currently searching intensively for a new center forward. Nonetheless, those in charge of the troubled Bundesliga football club are also looking for reinforcements for other positions. A youngster from Brazil seems to have been particularly impressed. According to a report from the portal "globoesporte", Borussia Dortmund recently sent scouts to South America to take a closer look at 19-year-old right-wing Antony from FC Sao Paulo.

As a technically studded winglet Antony could possibly follow in the footsteps of Jadon Sancho at BVB, the latter more by indiscipline than by Performance made headlines. Unlike Sancho, Antony is left-footed. The teenager likes to move from the right to the center in order to finish his degree, much like the former Bayern star Arjen Robben. In the current season of the Brazilian Serie A, he scored at least three goals, five more put the offensive gem for teammates auf.Da also in England and Spain coveted Antony his contract with FC Sao Paulo until August extended to 2024 would have BVB certainly dig deep into his pocket. For offers below the 20-million-euro limit, the bosses of the "Tricolor" would probably not even take the phone in the hand. That the Dortmund venture in winter an advance, is by no means impossible. Even if Jadon Sancho should stay with the runner-up until the end of the season, Antony could possibly switch to Borussia in January, in anticipation of the upcoming transfer summer. So he would have enough time to acclimatize in Germany.
