When looking for a potential reinforcement for the central defense, the two top German clubs Borussia Dortmund and FC Bayern are said to have kept an eye on Nico Schlotterbeck from SC Freiburg. The state of the negotiations has now been revealed.
BVB and FC Bayern are said to have already inquired about Schlotterbeck, but concrete negotiations are not said to have come about yet. That is what “Sky” reporter Marc Behrenbeck wants to know. It is currently “still in the sampling phase”.
Schlotterbeck should also play with the idea of switching to the English Premier League. However, in this case only “one top club” should come into question for the 22-year-old.
It is still completely open where the 1.91-meter giant is going. According to the report, however, there will not be any clarity that quickly: A change in winter is assessed as “as good as impossible”, while in summer a change of scenery is “quite likely”.
BVB and FC Bayern would have to invest 20 to 25 million euros
“Sky” also throws into the room the possible transfer fee that would have to be put on the table for Schlotterbeck’s services. Accordingly, the SC Freiburg demands 20 to 25 million euros for its defensive star. Schlotterbeck’s contract in Breisgau ends in summer 2023.
In addition to Schlotterbeck, 19-year-old Swiss Becir Omeragic from FC Zurich is said to have piqued BVB’s interest. However, this probably unites the Dortmunders with Milan, Lyon and Seville. In this context, “Sky” claims to have found out that the Bundesliga side has no good cards in poker for talent.
Either way, Dortmund are looking for a new man for the defense center. According to the report, this header has to be strong, strong in the build-up game and affordable. Not really low requirements.
