Borussia Dortmund pull out of the race to sign Euro 2024 star

According to Sky Germany, Borussia Dortmund have pulled out of the race to sign Ferdi Kadıoğlu.

Die Schwarzgelben’s admiration for the Turkish full back has long been reported, and after a sensational display at Euro 2024, there was a belief that BvB would look to lure the 24-year-old to the Westfalenstadion.

However, it is understood that Dortmund have been priced out of a move for Kadıoğlu. The new Fenerbahçe head coach, José Mourinho, considers the right-footed left-back too important to let go in the hunt for the Süper Lig title.

Nevertheless, the Turkish side would be prepared to allow the 24-year-old to leave should a bid within the region of €35 million come in. This has seen Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion emerge as favourites to secure Kadıoğlu’s signature this summer.

Regardless, Dortmund are unable to afford the lucrative fee demanded by Fenerbahçe and are now considering other alternatives.
