Lorient forward Jordan Ayew has revealed that he would relish the chance to play in the German Bundesliga one day.
The 22-year-old has been touted to reunite with coach Herve Renard at Lille this summer, with the ex-Ivory Coast coach admitting that the Ghana international wants to join him at his new club in the French Ligue 1.
Jordan, however, hints that he might prefer to try another league, with Dortmund as an attractive proposition as an elite team.
“I can very well imagine playing in Germany.The Bundesliga is one of the strongest leagues in the world,” Jordan told the Sports Bild.
“Negotiations are still ongoing with several top European clubs. However, the my dream is to play in the Bundesliga.
Dortmund will be ready to snap up Jordan, who they see as an ideal replacement for Ciro Immobile, the Italian striker who recently signed for Spanish La Liga side Sevilla.
Jordan was acquired by Lorient on a permanent deal from Olympique Marseille in July 2014. He had a fantastic season last term, scoring 12 goals for Les Merlus which contributed to their narrow escape from relegation.
His contract with Lorient will expire in 2018.
