Borussia Dortmund are believed to be nearing a deal for SC Freiburg defender Matthias Ginter.

The 20-year old centre-back has remained a target for Arsenal after they failed with a winter swoop while Manchester United have also been credited with an interest.

However, it has been reported in Germany that Dortmund are in pole position to sign the once-capped Germany international who will cost BVB around £8million.

Ginter came through the youth academy at Freiburg and this season has gone on to make 31 Bundesliga starts for the Baden-Wurttemberg club this season.
