- Deadline Day
The Bundesliga transfer window is open until 18.00h CEST and as per usual some Bundesliga teams will make some last minute moves to reinforce their squads. Borussia Dortmund likely won’t buy another player but will probably sell one or maybe even two players.
According to both Ruhr Nachrichten and Bild, Marius Wolf will move to Hertha BSC Berlin today. The versatile winger/wing back did not make BVB’s squad on the first three matchdays and seems to have no real chance to make it into the first team.
Hertha BSC Berlin will loan Wolf for one year, it’s unclear as of now if there is an option to buy included in the deal.
Raphael Guerreiro is another candidate for a transfer. However, the situation in Paris is still undecided and it looks increasingly likely that the Portuguese international might stay in Dortmund. Michael Zorc has repeatedly stated that the club wishes to extend Guerreiro’s contract which could happen if a transfer doesn’t happen in the last few hours.
Borussia Dortmund is not the only club that’s active on Deadline Day:
Eintracht Frankfurt: Frankfurt are gonna lose their third star striker this offseason. After Jovic and Haller it looks like Ante Rebic will also leave. Sporting director Fredi Bobic confirmed to Sky yesterday that Eintracht Frankfurt and AC Milan will swap players, André Silva will join the German side while Rebic will move to the Serie A. In both cases it looks like it will be a 2-year loan with either an option or obligation to buy.
Bayern Munich: Jerome Boateng has been rumored to be on the move to Juventus in the last couple days but it looks like the centerback will stay in Munich. According to Bild Boateng has decided to stay with Bayern.
Werder Bremen - HSV: Bild reports Martin Harnik will join HSV in the 2.Bundesliga. Hamburg also has an obligation to buy the striker for 1€ million if the club gets promoted this season.
Werder Bremen: Bremen wanted Schalke’s Nabil Bentaleb but that transfer fell through in the last few days. Now, according to Bild, Bremen has shown interest in ex-BVB player Leonardo Bittencourt. The offensive midfielder could join Bremen today if the Northern Germans can agree to a transfer with TSG Hoffenheim.
