In seasons previous, the switch window has usually acted as an unwelcomed distraction for Borussia Dortmund as they attempt to survive with their squad intact. However, as January approaches rumours of gamers transferring on from the Westfalenstadion are but to floor at an alarming fee.
Nevertheless, whereas this can be a optimistic for BvB, they are going to quickly be hoping to have sure gamers off their wage invoice. As reported by Bild, head coach Edin Terzić and sporting director Sebastian Kehl are hoping so as to add defensive reinforcement to their full-back areas.
While Ramy Bensebaini and Julian Ryerson have nailed down the full-back positions within the squad, depth is desired. Marius Wolf has been resigned to the bench, whereas Mateu Morey is out injured and Thomas Meunier has misplaced his place within the squad.
Therefore, with such a plethora of choices within the full-back division, Dortmund can’t act till one among these gamers has been moved on from the aspect because of the inflated wage invoice. However, the contacts of Wolf, Morey and Meunier are all set to run out in 2024, that means that the summer time would supply Die Schwarzgelben the proper alternative to strike within the switch market.
The Black and Yellows will ideally goal a technical full-back, who can supply creativity in attacking areas, in the same method to the just lately departed Raphaël Guerreiro. Nevertheless, until Kehl can promote one among his present choices, a full-back signing in January appears considerably unlikely.
