Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram and FC Köln’s Anthony Modeste are the latest names to be associated with a move to Borussia Dortmund in the wake of Sébastien Haller’s illness, according to Sport Bild.
Thuram (24) would be a more expensive replacement with the forward being reported to cost around €10m. The Frenchman has also been linked with a move to France this summer with Nice voicing their interest.
It’s also reported that Gladbach would rather keep Thuram and don’t wish to sell him despite his contract expiring in 2023.
Modeste (34) had a fabulous season with Köln last year and proved he can still find the back of the net. In recent months, the veteran striker has flirted with a possible change of clubs. It’s thought that BVB could secure the signing of Modeste for less than €3m.
Other strikers that have been linked with a move to Dortmund include Edinson Cavani (35) and Arkadiusz Milik (28).
Cavani is the most experienced forward from the list and could come on a free transfer. Despite this, Sport Bild reports that the Uruguayan would demand a yearly salary of around €10m which BVB are unlikely to agree upon.
Milik is currently with Marseille are would most likely come to Germany on loan. This option may suit BVB as whenever Haller is back, he will start and the need for an interim forward would no longer be necessary.
