For the past few seasons, Bundesliga has been turned into a more or less of a feeder league to its counterparts, especially the English Premier League. Players succeeding in the Bundesliga and then moving onto the Premier League for more fame, money and popularity has been the usual trend at least for the past couple of years now.
The summer transfer window is coming to an end with just about a week remaining until the deadline day, big clubs are finishing off their final bits and pieces as they lock their final squad before window closes.
In this article, we will discuss five Bundesliga players who could still leave the club before the deadline day.
The young 22-year-old left back of TSG Hoffenheim, who just won silver in the Rio Olympics 2016 with Germany, is one of many impressive youngsters in the Hoffenheim team but also a target for many clubs around Europe.
Toljan appeared in 19 Bundesliga matches last season, 11 of them were given by new Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann. So a move away from the Rhein-Neckar Arena for Toljan might prove to be wrong decision as Hoffenheim look much better with 28-year-old coach Julian Nagelsmann and the coach also seems to have plans with Jeremy Toljan.
Even though, Napoli are interested in the services of Toljan as they look for a backup for Albanian right back Elseid Hysaj if reports from Gianluca Di Marzio are to be believed.
Germany youth International and world cup winner Matthias Ginter is also a recent Olympic silver medal winner with Germany but his club career with Borussia Dortmund hasn’t really gone the way he would’ve liked.
Ginter came from SC Freiburg in 2014 after a back of great season but struggled to find much game time with Borussia Dortmund. Even now, with Mats Hummels’ departure from Dortmund, Thomas Tuchel chose to trust former Barcelona defender Marc Bartra instead so a move for Ginter seems likely.
VfL Wolfsburg have been showing interest in the 22-year-old defender for a long time now and according to German sources, the wolves are ready to sign Ginter from Dortmund but face competition with HSV and RB Leipzig interested.
Ricardo Rodriguez is one of the best left backs in the Bundesliga. The Swiss left-back is a target for numerous top clubs around Europe.
The Swiss made 158 appearances for Wolfsburg since joining the club in 2010 but recently admitted staying with the Bundesliga outfit is ‘unrealistic’. It is understood that Ricardo Rodriguez has a 19 million euros exit clause in his contract which will expire in 2019.
Chelsea are the latest club to show interest in Ricardo Rodriguez along with Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and many other top clubs around Europe and a move for Rodriguez wouldn’t be a bad idea as he has all the class and quality to play at the top level.
The final player and the third Wolfsburg player on our list. Bas Dost, after a productive 2014/15 season, flopped terribly with Wolfsburg last season (much like the whole team did). Even though scoring as much as eight goals last season, Dost found himself at benched and not having much playtime. Dost also had an unclear relationship with coach Dieter Hecking.
Kicker says that Portuguese outfit Sporting CP and two other unspecified English clubs are after the services of Bas Dost and if the right offer comes along, don’t be surprised to see the Dutch forward leaving the Volkswagen Arena.
