Good Morning Fear The Wall

Youssoufa Moukoko is the latest casualty in the international break, having picked up a muscle injury and returning home to Dortmund, missing the Germany U21 match against Israel.

There’s no suggestion it’s anything serious, so it’s not a worry, but it is funny to see how many players have already returned home with knocks and minor injuries.

BVB Interested in Bayern Munich’s Marcel Wenig

One of Bayern Munich’s talented kids, Marcel Wenig (17), looks to be on his way out of the club, with Eintracht Frankfurt thought to be leading the race, according to Bild.

The U19 star has rejected moves to extend his contract with Bayern Munich, despite Wenig being regarded as one of the top talents in the club’s academy. With his contract running up at the end of the season, both Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund are sniffing around.

While it looks like Wenig is most likely heading to Frankfurt, this is one to keep an eye on. Would be nice to steal a young talent from Bayern!

Get Ready to Hear Adeyemi’s Name A LOT in Coming Months

As reported earlier in the week, every club in Germany and England is very interested in the RB Salzburg star, Karim Adeyemi (19), but that’s sure to be only the beginning in this transfer saga. Recent reports have shed more light on Adeyemi’s situation. First, it seems that he has a release clause, and that a fee of around €30m - €35m should be enough to land the young German striker. Second, there have been several reports that Adeyemi is looking to move to Germany first, before heading to England a few years down the line.

Which leaves the question of where in Germany he’s likely to go. SPORT1 seems to be hinting that BVB or RB Leipzig are the most likely destination for Adeyemi. Lewandowski is going to get in the way at Bayern Munich, and it’s unlikely that he heads straight to England to play for Liverpool. If it’s between Dortmund and Leipzig, I think there’s a more obvious spot for him in East Germany, but Borussia Dortmund’s success developing young players, and the prestige of playing for a much bigger team, might be enough to pull him further west.

This is probably going to be going on all season long. Get strapped in!

Where do you think Adeyemi will end up?
