Simon Rolfes outlines plans for Bayer Leverkusen’s transfer window

Speaking to media ahead of the Bundesliga’s return to action next weekend, Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Simon Rolfes discussed plans for the January transfer window.

“We are already well placed with two players in every position,” said Rolfes. “Nevertheless, we can never completely rule out that something might happen. If the situation develops then we won’t close our minds to anything. Basically, we have a good basis for the second half of the season with the current squad and we are happy.”

In addition, Timothy Fosu-Mensah has been in training since November following a torn cruciate in March but is still short of match fitness, “He is ready and can play but with such a long absence through injury we will again and again have to take a step back and control his workload.”
