Good Morning Fear The Wall
Yesterday afternoon the news was leaked that Borussia Dortmund were in serious discussions with Angers about their winger, Mohamed-Ali Cho. Reports seem to suggest that Cho is available for around €25m, which seems like an awful lot of money to spend on a player that is still relatively unproven (though is very talented) and a position that isn’t at the top of BVB’s list of priorities.

But to keep things spicy, Patrick Berger rubbished the reports just two hours later! Apparently there is interest in Germany, but Borussia Dortmund are not one of those clubs.
Borussia Dortmund are NOT in talks with SCO Angers over a transfer of Mohamed-Ali Cho. It’s correct that several German clubs are interested in the 17-yo attacker but not #BVB so far. In general, the player is keen to leave @AngersSCO in summer. Transfer fee: €20-25m. @SPORT1— Patrick Berger (@berger_pj) January 5, 2022
We love the drama! But I think it’s probably good that Dortmund are not interested in Cho right now. Given that it seems like BVB are the frontrunners for Karim Adeyemi, they should be focusing their energies on strengthening other positions.

Do you want BVB to go after Mohamed-Ali Cho? And what price would you pay?
