At Borussia Dortmund they are working on a fast striker commitment. Hans-Joachim Watzke now confirms this in an interview with ‘sportschau.de’: “Ideally something should happen in the next eight to ten days.” A clear favorite has not yet leaked out, names are circulating en masse through the media landscape.
It is clear, however, that an external newcomer should come to compensate for the month-long absence of Sébastien Haller (28). “Now dumping everything on Youssoufa Moukoko’s shoulders – he’s 17 years old – that might be a bit much.”says Watzke.
The manager continues: “Well, I think we’ll do something again in terms of personnel. However, finding a really good solution is also difficult because the range on the market is not exactly plentiful.” On the list of candidates is next FT-Information including Anthony Modeste (34/1. FC Köln).
Meanwhile, there is more clarity with Jude Bellingham. The 19-year-old, recently promoted to third captain and on the list at a number of top clubs, will not move this summer. “Definitive” and to “100 percent” the midfielder will remain in this transfer period, so Watzke.
