  • Oh a new striker-rumor!

In what seems to be the new trend for the coming weeks, I'm coming at you with yet another new transfer rumor regarding Auba or his possible replacement. This time around it's a striker from the Bundesliga.

Anthony Modeste (23 goals) is having a breakout season for 1.FC Köln, competing with Robert Lewandowski (28) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (27) for the Torjägerkanone. According to Mercato365 the 29-year-old is a candidate to replace PEA if he leaves this summer.

Take this one with an entire salt mine. First of all the source isn't proven when it comes to BVB-rumors and the thought that Zorc would pay anything close to the rumors fees (a Chinese club offered 50€ million in January) for Modeste is ridiculous. He has played an exceptional season but he also seems like a possible one-season-wonder, Modeset is already 29 and has never scored more than 20 goals per season before his breakout this year. If the black and yellows will have to replace Auba it better be with a more proven striker than Modeste.
