Good Morning Fear The Wall
Borussia Dortmund are clearly shopping for forwards, with Karim Adeyemi and Sebastien Haller both being linked to the club in recent weeks. But in the last few days BVB have also been linked to several other forwards. One of those mentioned has been the Fiorentina target man, Dusan Vlahovic.
Auch Dusan #Vlahovic beobachtet der @BVB sehr genau. Er zählt neben Karim #Adeyemi und Sébastien #Haller zu den Angreifern, mit denen sich der #BVB für die nächste Saison beschäftigt #AJABVB @SPORTBILD— Sven Westerschulze (@westsven) October 19, 2021
Vlahovic is just 21 years old and has already scored 31 goals for Fiorentina in Serie A. Across all competitions, he is averaging 0.79 G+A/90 (0.45 when you take away penalties). He’s a big lad that could replicate a decent amount of what Erling Haaland does, and given his age and the fact he is playing for a midtable team, his production is pretty promising.
Another striker that BVB have been linked to is Genk’s Paul Onuachu. The 6ft7 Nigerian has scored 38 goals in just under 37 90s in the Belgian First Division in the last two seasons.
Another name circulating in Dortmund besides Adeyemi and Vlahovic is Paul Onuachu from KRC Genk. Last season he scored 33 goals, this season already 9 goals in 10 games. Atletico and Inter Milan have also made enquiries about the player.— BVB Newsblog (@bvbnewsblog) October 18, 2021

However, at 27 years old he seems a slightly odd target for a club like BVB. While he probably represents decent value for money, he’s a little older than the kind of player BVB tend to go for.
The Daily Buzz
Assuming that Adeyemi isn’t competing to be Erling Haaland’s replacement, who would you pick from Haller, Vlahovic, and Onuachu?
