Hi guys!

Watzke and Zorc's wild ride continues, and here are this week's fresh new rumors!


Transfers In:

France v Iceland - Quarter Final: UEFA Euro 2016 Photo by Michael Regan/Getty Images

Moussa Sissoko

Current club: Newcastle United

Position: Central midfield

Rumored price: 13 million Euros

Likelihood: French website Mercato 365, so not that likely.

Do we need him: Yeah, I'm not really a fan. He's had some good games, but he is really inconsistent.

Arda Turan

Current club: FC Barcelona

Position: Attacking midfield

Rumored price: 30 million Euros

Likelihood:

Do we need him: Eh. I don't know. I'm not sure if I wan't our most expensive transfer yet to be a 29 year old Barca castoff. Further thoughts here.

Marek Hamsik

Current club: SSC Napoli

Position: Central midfield

Rumored price: 35 million Euros

Likelihood: BILD and Italian newspapers.

Do we need him: I'm a fan! (and not just of the mohawk) He's the Napoli captain/icon/heart-throb, and he's definitely impressed in the Euros. I'd go for him, despite his age and the price. But whether Napoli will let him go is unlikely.

Nacer Chadli

Current club: Tottenham Hotspur

Position: Left wing

Rumored price: 13 million Euros

Likelihood: The Sun. So probably not.

Do we need him: I don't know. There's a reason Mauricio Pochettino doesn't want him.


Transfer Updates:

André Schürrle

The latest rumor is DiMarzio quoting the Klaus Allofs reluctantly admitting that Schürrle and our management have reached an agreement. All that remains is negotiations with Wolfsburg management.

F- it. I'm getting behind the Bruchweg Boys Reunion Tour 16/17. I'll dig out my old CD's and buy the tour shirt.

Mario Götze

Pretty likely at this point. I guess we just have to accept it if it happens. But it still depends on whether Schürrle or someone else signs first.

Mateo Kovacic

BILD and RN are both reporting increasing likelihood, but it seems to be a Schürrle vs. Kovacic situation. I hope that's not the case. I don't want to miss out on Kovacic if we sign Schürrle.

Marko Pjaca

Apparently his agent was seen walking about in Dortmund. This could be happening! It’ll probably be only two of these four players coming to Dortmund.

Neven Subotic

The club has given Neven full freedom to find himself another club. Neven seems to be eyeing a PL move. The latest rumor is that Arsenal is offering about 14-15 million Euros for him.

We'll all miss Neven, but he needs regular play-time and won't get that in our team. Read our thoughts here.

Kuba

It seems Liverpool has made a bid. I really hope Kuba doesn't get sold. He means a lot to us fans, and that Euro performance showed that he's still a force to be reckoned with. Get your grubby hands off him Liverpool!


See you guys next week!
