Borussia Dortmund are looking to buy more left-back in the summer of Tech.
Lucien Favre is looking to bring back a left-back in the summer. Currently, Dortmund, Marcel Schmelzer and Jeremy Toljan all have a knack for playing in the left-back position but the pair are no longer in the Swiss coach’s plan.
So almost throughout the season, he had to use two backup options, Achraf Hakimi and Abdou Diallo, on the left flank in the defense. However, this is not the main role of both, so the 61-year-old leader is looking to buy more people in the upcoming market.
And that player is Nico Schulz, the emerging defender in the colors of Hoffenheim and the German national team. According to Bild, the yellow-and-black team won a personal deal with the player to own him in the next season. Reportedly, the contract release fee for 26-year-old defender is about 25-30 million euros and will expire in 2021.
Previously, Signal Iduna Park’s team had been interested in Filipe Luis in a free transfer. But it seems that the Brazilian player wants to go to Barca to play or return to play in his home country than to the Bundesliga. Because of this reason, Dortmund has put “the man who turned Van Dijk into a joke” into view.
Schulz has had an impressive performance this season in Hoffenheim. Thanks to that, the German defender was summoned by coach Joachim Low to the national team. Just last month, the former Gladbach player also scored against the Netherlands to help the “tank” win 3 points in the Euro 2020 qualifier. Also in that match, the Hoffenheim permanent defender also owned an assault line. Help Leroy Sane open the deadlock.
That confrontation with the “orange whirlwind” really became the game that pushed the name of the player born in 1993 to light. He gradually became known as a good public defender and seemed to be an important factor in the future of Germany.
It is no coincidence that in Germany’s victory against Holland in March, Schulz and Sane formed a whirlwind on the left wing that led to the current top defender of world football, Virgil van Dijk. In fact, if you successfully buy this left-back, Dortmund will not need to worry about that position in the next few years.
