German Bundesliga football club Borussia Dortmund is set to seal the transfer of Bulgarian 18-year-old midfielder Mihail Alexandrov this week, Bulgarian sports website Gong.bg reported on Monday.

Alexandrov, who is currently on the books of CSKA Sofia, is expected to sign a three-year deal with the German outfit on Wednesday.

Last month, Alexandrov was close to signing with English club Liverpool and even passed a medical on Merseyside.

But the five-time European champions dropped their interest after it became clear that the youngster would not receive a British work permit.
