André Schürrle has no future in Dortmund that much is clear but it will be difficult to find a solution for both sides. Schürrle’s 8€ million per year salary will be a problem, nevertheless Ruhr Nachrichten report that West Ham United could be interested in the former German international. However it’s likely that it will be another loan instead of a permanent deal.
Dzenis Burnic was on loan at Dynamo dresden last season and the 2.Bundesliga club would like to sign the defensive midfielder on a permanent deal. According to Bild Lucien Favre does not plan with Burnic and he would be allowed to leave.
Reports in Spain suggest Real Sociedad are interested in Alexander Isak. The young striker has just rejoined BVB after his successful loan spell at Willem II but it seems Isak will not get another chance in Dortmund. Despite BVB’s somewhat questionable situation at centre forward it looks like the club won’t plan with Isak next season. If Dortmund are looking for another loan or a permanent deal is unclear at this point.
