New rumors but the names stay the same.

Jonathan Tah (Bayer Leverkusen) and Mitchell Weiser (Hertha BSC Berlin) aren’t exactly new names when it comes to rumored targets for the black and yellows but they keep coming up. This time around Sport Bild reports that Borussia Dortmund are interested to sign both players to shore up their defense.

Both are young (Tah 22; Weiser 23), talented, know the league and what’s especially interesting is that both have a relatively cheap release clause in their contract. Tah could reportedly leave Leverkusen for 25€ million while Weiser has a 13€ million option.

Could could be excellent additions to the roster, Tah is a great young centerback who could form CB-duo with Manuel Akanji for years to come and Weiser could finally be the player that can replace Lukasz Piszczek.

Another interesting report from the German outlet.

All of Dortmund’s supposed targets for the coaching position have one thing in common, all of the coaches are still under contract with their current club for next season. This doesn’t exactly help with BVB’s quest for a new coach, if none of the targets - Julian Nagelsmann, Ralph Hasenhüttl or Niko Kovac - are able to get out of their contract, then Dortmund couldn’t do much about it.

However according to Sport Bild one of Dortmund’s targets could be a bit easier to get. If the report is to be believed Lucien Favre has a release clause between 3 and 5€ million for this summer which would make hiring him a lot easier.

Daily Buzz: Yesterday the German national team presented their new jersey’s. Not everybody liked them but at least they’re different from the usual design. Which brings me to my the question, which international jersey is your all-time favorite?
