VfB Stuttgart looking at potential goalkeeper alternatives to Alexander Nübel

According to kicker, VfB Stuttgart are preparing for the possibility of not keeping Alexander Nübel and are looking at alternative options.

It is known that Stuttgart would like to keep Nübel beyond this season whether on loan or permanently, however, a permanent move would be difficult for Stuttgart as it would be too expensive.

Nottingham Forest’s Odysseas Vlachodimos is an option for a potential return to VfB. The Stuttgart-born Greek international was a part of the club’s youth system before joining Panathinaikos.

But the 29-year-old has struggled for game time at the Premier League side due to the fact that they have four senior goalkeepers all fighting for one position. With a contract until 2027 and Forest likely needing to sell plays after a points deduction, a move could be feasible however Stuttgart are not the only team interested. 

The other option is Manchester City’s Stefan Ortega. Since moving to City as Ederson’s backup in 2022, the 31-year-old has impressed when called upon. Ortega is interested in a return to the Bundesliga where he played two seasons for Arminia Bielefeld and was impressive throughout.
