Borussia Dortmund: found what you were looking for in Bundesliga rivals? He should come
Borussia Dortmund is about to change. The reason for this is the performance fluctuations of the past few weeks.
It could be in the squad of Borussia Dortmund drastic changes occur. With Niklas Süle from competitor Bayern Munich, the first new summer signing has already been confirmed. More could follow.
Borussia Dortmund: Does the new defender come from Leverkusen?
Because as “El Nacional” reports, BVB should be keen on a defender from Bayer Leverkusen. Namely on Jeremie Frimpong. The Dutchman came to Leverkusen from Scotland in winter 2021. Since then, the 21-year-old has shown consistently strong performances. He has already been involved in ten goals in the current Bundesliga.
In Dortmund he could give the newly formed defense more stability. A young, hungry and fast player with good technique – Frimpong fits perfectly into the BVB profile. However, Borussia is not alone in showing interest. The league competitor from Munich should also keep an eye on the defender. In the past, Bayern have repeatedly shown negligence in defense.
Tough competition for BVB?
In addition to the Bundesliga giants, a top club from Spain should show interest. Because Real Madrid is also said to have put out feelers to Frimpong. Coach Carlo Angelotti is said to want the young right-back to succeed Daniel Carvajal. Interesting parallel: Carvajal also played for Bayer Leverkusen when he was young before he matured into a top defender in Madrid.

A hurdle could be the transfer fee. Frimpong’s contract runs until 2025, so it should be anything but cheap. According to “El Nacional” they calculate in Madrid with about 25 million euros.
It remains questionable whether BVB is willing to pay this sum. After all, the upheaval should also cost a lot of money in other places. A Nico Schlotterbeck should follow for the defense. Its price tag should also be at least 25 million euros.
