The current transfer headlines around Borussia Dortmund are circulating around the almost certain departure of Mats Hummels and how he will be replaced. Well, since we are all tired of hearing about Hummels and sulking over his departure, let's just forget about it and take a look at a few positive transfer rumors.

It's obvious Dortmund have been targeting youth talent from around Europe. And this week, it has continued. Remember a few weeks back when two KRC Genk starlets were linked with Dortmund? Well, one of them is back in the news. Jamaican winger Leon Bailey is on the list of two Bundesliga teams, Hamburg and, of course, Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund have already scouted Bailey this season and look to be the front-runners to secure his signing this summer.

Onto defense where Niklas Sule is has been linked with a move from Hoffenheim to Dortmund in the summer. He has been on the Dortmund radar for about a month now and the 20-year-old would likely be brought in to add depth to the Dortmund backline and not to directly replace Hummels.

Finally, for the best transfer news of the day: Oleksandr Zinchenko. The 19-year-old Ukrainian attacking-midfielder has been scouted by Dortmund over the past season, and has been prolific for FK Ufa in the Russian Premier League.

Zinchenko's agent has revealed that a deal with Dortmund for Zinchenko is all but complete. The midfielder has captured the interest of a slew of European clubs, but it looks as if Dortmund have secured his signature.

Although his current club has hinted that Zinchenko may be headed elsewhere, it seems likely that the Ukrainian wants to be in Dortmund and could definitely see time on the first team.

As always, these are currently just rumors and nothing official has been announced. However, the prospect of these three young stars coming to Dortmund shows good things to come in the next few years.
