Brentford forward Marcus Forss has caught the attention of German giants Borussia Dortmund, reports David Ornstein of the Athletic. The West London club have seen a number of quality players come through their system in recent years, and it seems that the side have once again produced a player who is destined for greatness.

Brentford Forward Marcus Forss Is Yet to Start a Championship Game
The 21-year-old striker is yet to make a Championship start this season, but has made nine appearances from the bench. He has been quite unfortunate that Brentford’s new signing, Ivan Toney, has been so prolific since arriving from Peterborough United.
Despite this, his impact from the bench has been immense. He has netted four times, and is averaging a goal every 42 minutes, but given Toney’s 10 goals already this season, it is unlikely that Forss will take Toney’s place in the near future.
The most likely scenario in which the Finnish striker would start, would be if Brentford deploy two central strikers. But, The Bees do not tend to stray from their 4-3-3 formation that has brought them a great amount of success in recent years.
Impressing on the International Stage Too
The Finnish forward has also managed to replicate his form in front of goal on the international stage. Despite not starting a league game, Forss was handed a full debut against France during the international break and repaid his manager’s faith by scoring the opening goal in his side’s 2-0 victory.
Despite the phenomenal win and Forss’ goal, he was named as a substitute in Finland’s two Nations League ties. He played 56 minutes across the two games combined, and once again impressed his country’s fans.
Finland have now qualified for the finals of Euro 2021, and Forss could play an instrumental part for his country. A move to Borussia Dortmund would certainly bolster his chances on the international stage.
