Borussia Dortmund announces long-anticipated add of U.S. teen Reyna

Giovanni Reyna

One of the next big hopes for Americans Abroad, Giovanni Reyna is now formally a member of Borussia Dortmund.

Reyna, the 16-year-old son of USMNT legend Claudio, was an attacking midfield prospect for New York City FC and has worn the red, white, and blue of his country at the U-17 level.

Claudio Reyna is the sporting director at NYCFC, a centurion with the USMNT who won the Scottish top flight as a player with Rangers and also played for Bayer Leverkusen, Wolfsburg, Sunderland, Manchester City, and the New York Red Bulls.

Reyna helped the U.S. qualify for the U-17 World Cup and has since been called up to the U-23 team for camp ahead of Olympic qualifying. A November birthday, reports of his destination being BVB emerged late last summer.

The Bundesliga site released a bio on Giovanni comparing his style to that of David Trezeguet. Sounds good to us.
