Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund Battle for Bernard

Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund are now locked into a battle to sign promising young Brazilian star Bernard who is expected to leave Atletico Mineiro this Summer.

The 20 year-old has been impressive in Brazil over the past couple of years and it has not gone unnoticed with 5 clubs allegedly vying for his signature.

But Tottenham seem to be the closest to signing Bernard with Borussia Dortmund close behind. Tottenham are in the market for a new strike force and Bernard is a part of the puzzle or so it seems.

Dortmund may believe that he could replace new Bayern Munich signing Mario Gotze who left for a major transfer fee which means that they could splash some cash for the youth international.
