  • Weigl ready to leave? (Sport Bild)

According to Sport Bild have set the price for Julian Weigl at 30€ million and both PSG and Arsenal are interested. Weigl burst onto the scene under Thomas Tuchel, who is now employed at PSG, as a central midfielder with an outstanding pass accuracy. However the arrival of Axel Wistel pushed Weigl out of the starting spot in midfield and into the rotation at center-back under Lucien Favre.

Keeping Weigl would probably be a luxury for BVb at this point, Witsel will be the starter in midfield and with the arrival of Mats Hummels the centre of the defense also seems to crowded for Weigl. A year ago Dortmund would have been able to ask for more than 30€ million but now it seems like a fair price.

Dominik Szoboszlai is one of the most sought after young central midfielders in Europe which naturally means Borussia Dortmund is one of the clubs linked to him. Sky Sports Austria report (quoting BVB is one of the teams interested in RB Salzburg’s midfielder. The 18-year-old scored 11 goals and added 10 assists last season in Austria last season.
