Borussia Dortmund are to sign 19-year old Boca Juniors defender Leonardo Balerdi, the Argentine club's chairman said on Friday.

Daniel Angelici told a Buenos Aires radio station that Balerdi would fly to Germany on Monday and, subject to a medical, sign what sources inside the club told Reuters was a five-year deal for a fee of 16 million euros ($18.34 million).

Balerdi has played only five games for the Argentine giants but is one of the most highly rated young players at the club.

Usually a central defender, he is currently with the Argentina Under-20 team preparing for the South American championship that begins in Chile on Jan. 17.

($1 = 0.8724 euros)
