The German publication reports that Dortmund is ‘actively monitoring’ Aston Villa’s wonder boy as they look to add a fourth English talent alongside Jadon Sancho, Jude Bellingham and Jamie Bynoe-Gittens.
Bild found that Manchester United have joined rivals City, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain in ‘putting palpitations’ in an effort to drive the 17-year-old away from the West Midlands.
Chukwuemeka, a central midfielder, made his professional and Premier League debut last night, watching just over five minutes of action as the Villains beat Spurs.
Sport Witness adds via Bild that Villa values the 6-foot-1 ace at € 15 million (£ 12.9 million), and Dean Smith’s team sees the Austrian-born Chukwuemeka as part of their future plans.

It is also claimed that Chukwuemeka, who has years of his contract with Villa, “plans to take the next step” if he is presented, something that could well be proven this summer.
Dortmund have shown that they can boost the careers of talented youngsters, particularly England, leaving them capable of attracting a prospect of Chukwuemeka’s caliber.
Chukwuemeka has continued his early transition to under-23 football this season very well, while yesterday’s debut shows that he is also entering the first team in Villa.
The 17-year-old scores goals from midfield, with Chukwuemeka hitting the back of the net eight times and contributing five assists in 23 U-23 appearances and 18 for Villa this season.
