Borussia Dortmund today confirmed the signing of young Turkish striker Emre Mor on a long-term contract from Danish outfit FC Nordsjaelland. Mor had for a while now been on the watchlist of a whole host of Europe’s top clubs, which of course include Arsenal, who had sent scouts to see the player in action on more than one occasion.
Mor had also been extensively tracked by Liverpool, Manchester United and Man City, and a number of Europe’s elite clubs including Juventus and Real Madrid, but the youngster perhaps rightly believes that he will see more playing time at Signal Iduna Park and has opted to make Dortmund his next home.
Mor, currently 18, was born in Denmark and grew up there but also has a Turkish passport. The winger recently completed his first international matches and has been named alongside fellow Dortmund player Nuri Sahin in Turkey’s squad for the European Championships.
Mor made 13 appearances in the 2015-16 Danish Superliga, scoring two goals and racking up two assists.
