This interest comes out of the blue!
According to information from “The Mirror”, Premier League club Chelsea Bielefeld’s Amos Pieper (24) is on the radar. BVB should also show interest in a return campaign.
SPECTACULAR ENGLAND RUMOR!
Pieper has had a mixed season at Arminia and is in 17th place with the club. With three games to go before the end of the season, there is a risk of relegation. Will the central defender (7 million market value/became European U21 champion last year with Germany) now leave the sinking ship? Important detail: Pieper’s contract expires in the summer, so it would be available free of charge.
As the “Mirror” reports, Tuchels-Chelsea is said to have asked about the central defender. That’s where it’s currently burning in this position. With Antonio Rüdiger (29), an important defender of Stamford Bridge will turn his back – destination still unknown. And there are also plans to leave Andreas Christensen (26) (Barcelona). With this, the “Blues” lose two important pillars. But is Pieper the right replacement candidate for these stars?
In addition to Chelsea, Southampton should also show interest in the Bundesliga professional. Incidentally, the coach there is the German Ralph Hasenhüttl (54).
According to “Mirror” information, BVB is also digging at Pieper. Dortmund have already signed two central defenders with the already confirmed signing of Niklas Süle (26/previously Bayern) and the upcoming signing of Nico Schlotterbeck (22/Freiburg). However, should Dan-Axel Zagadou (22) leave the club, the club would at least need a good back-up. Pieper would be a suitable candidate! Also, because he played at BVB all his youth, he knows the environment accordingly. He only moved to Bielefeld in January 2019 …
Will Pieper be satisfied with a reservist role? It is clear that he did not want to extend his contract with Bielefeld. So next season he won’t be wearing the Arminia shirt anymore.
