The South African teenager is reportedly close to signing for one of the best clubs in Europe. Could Lucien Favre sign him up soon?

Could Tashreeq Matthews follow in the footsteps of the likes of Steven Pienaar, a South African to star for Dortmund?

Matthews is already with the Bundesliga clubs youth team and according to reports, Dortmund will only be able to sign him when he turns 18 in September.

So, we will have to wait until then if the move definitely happens. In the meantime Matthews will have to keep impressing the scouts and coach Favre.

Let's have a look at how we've followed the progress of one of South Africa's next best bright talents.
