Borussia Dortmund look to beat Tottenham to signing of Kevin Kampl

Borussia Dortmund fans

Red Bull Salzburg winger Kevin Kampl has now been linked with Borussia Dortmund.

Whilst Tottenham's 2-1 win over Burnley means they have now won three games in a week, January additions are still anticipated.

Central defence and centre forward are areas that should be improved by manager Mauricio Pochettino, with the likes of Hector Moreno and Jackson Martinez linked to improve those positions.

Yet with Aaron Lennon and Andros Townsend linked with January exits, a right winger should also be on Pochettino's list of priorities.

The most strongly linked player to fill that role is Red Bull Salzburg star Kevin Kampl, who has also attracted interest from the likes of Southampton and Bayer Leverkusen in recent weeks.

Kampl, 24, is a Slovenian international who started his career with Leverkusen before heading to Austria with Salzburg, where his performances in the Europa League have seen him become hot property.

In his last game against Astra Giurgiu, Kampl was simply phenomenal. He racked up two goals, two assists and a whopping eight key passes, proving too dynamic to stop in the Red Bull attack.

Now though, those displays have attracted interest from more clubs, with Borussia Dortmund now believed to be eyeing up a move to bring Kampl back to Germany.

Jurgen Klopp's men are having a terrible campaign, and sit in the Bundesliga relegation zone with just four wins from 17 games - and desperately need something to turn the tide.

Kampl is seen as someone who can provide a spark for them in attack, with just a £5m price tag believed to be on his head.

Yet with Dortmund struggling and Tottenham seemingly making strides under Pochettino, Spurs could still lead the race for his signature.
