These and many other questions will be answered in this transfer summer. At t-online there is an overview of the most important rumors and changes from Germany and the world.

Fix: Hoffenheim brings top scorers back to the Bundesliga

A top-class player returns to the Bundesliga: TSG Hoffenheim have signed striker Wout Weghorst. The club posted a video on Wednesday morning presenting the Dutchman as a newcomer. There had already been speculation about Weghorst moving to TSG. As the Kraichgauer announced, the 31-year-old comes on loan from Premier League promoted FC Burnley for a year.

“I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I describe this transfer as remarkable and extraordinary. In any case, it is for us,” said TSG Managing Director Alexander Rosen. They promise “a boost for the entire team from his mentality, experience and accuracy”.

Weghorst had already played in the top German division for VfL Wolfsburg from 2018 to 2022 and scored 70 goals in 144 games for Lower Saxony. Burnley paid 17.5 million for the attacker, who was on loan at Manchester United for the second half of last season. Weghorst still has a contract with Burnley until 2025.

Report: Bayern’s goalkeeper candidate signs with Arsenal

When looking for a new goalkeeper, he is probably no longer an option for FC Bayern. David Raya is moving from Brentford FC to Arsenal FC. This is reported by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. Accordingly, an agreement was reached on the change within London last week. In the coming days, the 27-year-old Spaniard should complete the medical check and, according to “Kicker”, sign a five-year contract.

Raya has also been considered one of the candidates at FC Bayern. After Yann Sommer’s departure and Manuel Neuer’s still uncertain state of fitness, the Munich team are still looking for a goalkeeper.

Loan with purchase option: PSG secures desired striker

Paris Saint-Germain have signed Gonçalo Ramos. As the French champion announced, the 22-year-old attacker will initially be loaned out by Benfica from Lisbon for a year.

Then there is a purchase option. Portuguese media had previously reported a purchase obligation, the transfer fee should be 65 million euros, a further 15 million euros could be added through bonus payments.

The Portuguese soccer champions are already receiving a rental fee of 20 million euros, which is practically the first installment of the subsequent purchase amount, it said.

With the departure of Ramos, Benfica coach Roger Schmidt loses his most accurate player. Ramos had scored 19 league goals last season. At the World Cup in Qatar, he surprisingly ousted Cristiano Ronaldo from the starting XI in the round of 16 against Switzerland and then scored three goals in a 6-1 win.

Hertha BSC strengthens the defensive

Second division Hertha BSC has strengthened with Michał Karbownik. The 22-year-old Pole joins from English Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion and has signed a contract until 2026, the club announced on Tuesday. “Michał can be deployed flexibly and has not only demonstrated his qualities on both sides in full-back but also impressed in midfield,” said sporting director Benjamin Weber. “He knows the league and has also played for the Polish national team.” As usual, no information was given about the transfer terms.
