Borussia Dortmund are facing a delicate situation at the moment. With the Bundesliga suspended till the start of April, it remains to be seen whether the ongoing pandemic will force the authority to cancel the season altogether.
But one thing is for certain – the Black and Yellows are sure to undergo a squad overhaul in the summer as they attempt to pose a strong challenge to Bayern Munich next season. And in this article, we will talk about three players Dortmund must offload in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Three Players Borussia Dortmund Must Offload In The Summer
Mario Gotze is almost destined to leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer after falling out of sorts with Lucien Favre. The German international has often been overlooked by the head coach, in favour of the likes of Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard this season. Moreover, Favre has also preferred Marco Reus to play in the false nine role instead of Gotze.
Therefore, it seems unlikely that the ex-Bayern Munich star will be able to make himself a first-team regular for Dortmund anytime soon. A move away from Signal Iduna Park is the logical option.
Premier League could be an ideal destination for Gotze, perhaps even a reunion with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool. His versatility and experience could certainly help the Reds next season.
Borussia Dortmund defence has faced a lot of criticism under the leadership of Favre. Manuel Akanji, in particular, has been a culprit, having made a host of unforced defensive errors this season.
Indeed, the Swiss international, after making a promising start to his Bundesliga career, has lost his touch. His lack of quality when it comes to finding forward passes, coupled with his poor marking, often makes him a liability in the backline. As a result, Favre has been forced to prefer Dan-Axel Zagadou since the turn of the year. Akanji, therefore, should leave Dortmund in the summer if he is to revive his career.
Dortmund’s midfield department is kind of stacked following the arrival of Emre Can. And it won’t be surprising to see Favre offloading at least one of his midfielders in an attempt to decrease the overall size of his squad. Mahmoud Dahoud is the obvious option, having failed to make the desired impact since joining from Borussia Monchengladbach.
Dahoud has been unlucky with the lack of first-team opportunities. But, the German has also failed to impress whenever he has been given a chance. And with Can already making an impact, coupled with the return of Thomas Delaney, the 24-year-old’s future at Ruhrpott is likely numbered.
