Borussia Dortmund have hired a new scout, Sebastian Frank will leave Liverpool and join the black and yellows. According to Bild, Frank will join the team of BVB chief scout Markus Pilawa. He worked for Liverpool as their Germany scout for 19 months, before his stint with Klopp’s team he worked from 2014-2016 for Leicester City. Frank’s family has a history with Dortmund, his father Wolfgang Frank played for Dortmund between 1977-1980 and his brother Benjamin is already working in BVB’s scouting department.

  • Diallo Day!

Abdou Diallo is in Dortmund to complete his medical and sign a 5-year deal with the black and yellows according to Julien Maynard from Téléfoot. Mainz will get close to 30€ million for their talented centerback who will hopefully build the defense of the future with Manuel Akanji.

Daily Buzz: Akanji/Diallo or Akanji/Toprak or maybe even a three-man backline? It’s very early and we have an entire pre-season to go through but how do you think Dortmund’s defense will line up once the season starts and is the three-man backline a realistic option?
