BVB, Hertha BSC, VfB Stuttgart and Co. are obviously hot for national players

In winter, VfB Stuttgart is said to have tried to get Hugo Vetlesen away from the Norwegian first division club FK Bodö/Glimt. But a deal didn’t materialize. The midfielder should continue to be an issue for the Swabians, but BVB, Hertha BSC and other clubs are said to be putting out their feelers.

According to a report by “Sky”, VfB Stuttgart is “still hot” for a commitment from Hugo Vetlesen from FK Bodö/Glimt.

However, the TV broadcaster claims to have learned that four other Bundesliga clubs, Borussia Dortmund, Hertha BSC, Union Berlin and VfL Bochum, are also digging on the right foot. In addition, there should be other “well-known competition” for VfB in poker for Vetlesen. The report leaves open which clubs are involved.

Vetlesen began his career at Stabaek IF, where he quickly became a regular and played over 100 competitive games before his path led to the Norwegian top club Bodö/Glimt.

In northern Norway, Vetlesen took the next step and proved that he is more than a fighter in central midfield: in 2021 he scored five goals and prepared seven in the Norwegian annual league, last year he increased this to 16 league goals and twelve assists.

Damper for the hopes of BVB and Co.

In 2020 and 2021 he also won the Norwegian championship with Bodö/Glimt. In 2022 he was named Elite Series Player of the Year.

Merits, in view of which the rumored interest from the German Bundesliga is not surprising, but the hopes of BVB and Co. for a commitment may have recently suffered a severe setback. Last Sunday, FK Bodö/Glimt announced that Vetlesen had prematurely extended his contract, which expired at the end of 2023, until the end of 2025.

When he was extended, Vetlesen admitted that a few “thoughts went through his head”, but in the end it was “no secret” that it was always important to him to extend his contract with his current employer. Words that do not indicate an imminent farewell.
