The winter transfer window in the Bundesliga started on New Year’s Day. There’s a lot of speculation, the rumor mill is boiling – these are the hottest transfer topics.
Clubs can officially sign new players until January 31, when the transfer window in Germany closes at 6 p.m. Then no more players without a contract can be brought in. Departures to countries with a longer transfer period than the end of January are still possible. These include Switzerland, the United States and Austria.
Mönchengladbach and Dortmund in focus
In the Bundesliga, big things could happen, especially at Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Mönchengladbach. For example Jude Bellingham. The young BVB star is very courted. The Englishman is only 19 but his understanding of the game and his presence on the pitch are already huge. At Dortmund, he still has a contract until 2025, but the whole of Europe is watching. He has also demonstrated his skills on the big stage at the World Cup. Top English clubs Liverpool and Manchester City are particularly interested – but Real Madrid are also seen as candidates. A winter change seems unlikely, as huge fees are still possible next summer.
BVB’s situation at Shootingstar is much trickier Youssoufa Moukoko. The 18-year-old’s contract expires this summer. Negotiations for an extension are currently underway, but again it depends on the money. His World Cup nomination may have driven the price up. If Moukoko, directly involved in twelve goals for BVB this season, decides to move to another club, Dortmund will only be able to make money from him in the winter.
Selling yourself to “foals”?
It’s like that with Borussia Mönchengladbach Yan Summers. At the start of training after Christmas, the Swiss national player was still there, he carried out special goalkeeper training on a nearby pitch. But Sommer’s days with the “colts” could soon be numbered. More recently, he has been traded on several occasions as a replacement for injured Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. However, he has already announced that he wants to return next season. It remains to be seen if Sommer will do a part-time job and then sit on the bench. The Bayern goalkeeper on loan to AS Monaco is also in discussion Alexandre Nuebel.
About Sommer’s teammates Marcus Thuram there are discussions at each transfer window. Rumors about the French national player don’t stop – as his contract expires this summer. Italian runners-up Inter Milan are said to be very interested in the 25-year-old. His appearances at the World Cup will have further increased that.
And the Gladbachers have a third yard. Ramy Bensebaini should be top of the list at Dortmund. Will he perhaps leave Borussia in winter? The 26-year-old’s contract also ends this summer and he could fill the vacant left-back position at BVB. He has been proving his qualities in Gladbach for more than three years. If the Algerian changes in winter, it is with the Gladbachers Robin Gosens from Inter Milan as a replacement under discussion.
Amrabat, Fernandez and Mac Allister in the spotlight
Dramatic changes are also looming at international level after the World Cup. The Moroccan international is particularly in the spotlight Sofiane Amrabat from AC Fiorentina. The six was the big find, led his native country to the semi-finals, Europe’s top clubs pricked up their ears. Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool FC should be very hot, but Tottenham Hotspur should also face a transfer of the 26-year-old.
Enzo Fernandez of Benfica Lisbon became world champion with Argentina and best young player of the World Cup. There’s no doubt that big clubs like Real Madrid, Chelsea and Liverpool are now also interested in the midfielder. Benfica don’t want to lose him but would be ready to talk if the fee exceeds €120m.
And another world champion is now at the center of several major European clubs: Alexis MacAllister from Brighton & Hove Albion: Juventus Turin would be in the lead, but in addition to the usual England suspects, Borussia Dortmund would be interested.
