Dortmund eye Japanese international

They have been dubbed dark horses in the Champions League and having topped their so-called group of death, punters at the Football Transfer Tavern are gathering around the dart board to hear about Borussia Dortmund’s latest transfer activity ahead of the forthcoming January transfer window.

With star striker Robert Lewandowski repeatedly linked with a move to the Premier League, not to mention a noticeable void left by the previous departure Shinji Kagawa, the German champions are looking to CSKA Moscow and their Japanese international Keisuke Honda according to Reviersport.

Manchester United star Kagawa found the back of the net 13 times for the German side last season and as our landlord notes, he has been sorely missed this season for the Champions who despite impressing in Europe, are trailing Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga by an embarrassing 14 points currently sitting in third.

Dortmund are confident that the 26-year-old versatile attacking player could fill the void for goals in their team with the Liverpool target already having equalled his goal tally of last season netting 8 thus far in the Russian League.

Would Honda help lead the Germans to Champions League glory? Vote in our polls below.
