  • Emre Mor to Celta Vigo

Just like we wrote yesterday, Emre Mor to Celta Vigo seems like a done deal. The young, talented winger will join the Primera Division club, the announcement will probably happen today.

Here he is arriving in Vigo:

  • Bundesliga transfers

After the recent Yarmolenko-deal, rumors for BVB transfers have unsurprisingly dies down a little, so let’s take a look at what the other Bundesliga teams are doing:

Benedikt Höwedes is set for a shocking move to Juventus. Shocking not because Höwedes lacks quality, he is a World Cup winning center back after all, but because apparently Schalke and new coach Domenico Tedesco have decided his services are no longer needed. Before the season he was demoted and stripped of the captains armband and had to sit on the bench for the first two games of the season. The 29-year-old has played his entire career for Schalke, he’s been a part of the club since he’s 13 years old. It will be interesting to see how the passionate fans at Schalke react when a club icon is being let go so easily.

Naby Keita joins summer. The “Reds” were after Keita all summer long but RB Leipzig blocked a move. Keita could have left RBL next summer for 50€ million, a release clause in his contract. Liverpool are now paying a premium price of 70€ million to secure the signing a year early and avoid a potential bidding war for his services next year. A smart move by the “Reds”, they are already looking dangerous this season and they are only getting better with Keita.

Meanwhile Divock Origi could leave Liverpool and join a Bundesliga club. Per reports, several clubs from Germany, like Werder Bremen, VfL Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen would be interested to add the young Belgian striker.

Daily Buzz: Currently Sokratis is wearing the captains armband becuase Schmelzer is injured. In your opinion who should be captain, Schmlezer, Reus, Sokratis or someone else?
