Is Borussia Dortmund using the foals again? The black and yellow are said to have kept an eye on Marcus Thuram from Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Like the Spanish sports portal Relevo reported, BVB would like to sign the French national striker in the coming winter transfer window.
The massive attacker from Borussia Mönchengladbach is currently impressing with strong performances in the 1st Bundesliga and was rewarded by France coach Didier Deschamps (54) with participation in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. However, his contract with the “foals” expires in the summer, while an extension is not yet in sight.
Numerous top clubs such as FC Bayern Munich, Atlético Madrid and Inter Milan are said to have already put out feelers for the son of central defender legend Lilian Thuram (50), which is hardly surprising after 13 goals in 17 games across all competitions.

Now apparently Dortmund are also involved, who have a need in the storm center after the long-term absence of Sébastien Haller (28) and the poor hit rate of last-minute purchase Anthony Modeste (34). Too much responsibility currently rests on the shoulders of young Youssoufa Moukoko (18).
According to information from the portal, the German record champions from Munich are in pole position. There, Thuram could follow in the footsteps of the in-form Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (33).
“Of course we’ll see what happens,” said BVB coach Edin Terzic (40) loudly Ruhr news on the edge of the Asia trip. Borussia is on the road in Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam until December 1st.
However, the 40-year-old added: “I don’t see any major activities on the transfer market for us, not even in Europe as a whole.”
Sports director Sebastian Kehl (42) also recently commented on the black and yellow intentions in the upcoming changeover period and reduced the hopes of Dortmund supporters for a crack new signing: “Traditionally, Borussia Dortmund does not act extraordinarily in winter. And to be honest, it is too not our plan.”

A callous and assertive center forward like Thuram would still be good for BVB. Especially if you want to qualify for the Champions League again.
“Nobody is satisfied with sixth place in the Bundesliga,” coach Terzic said.
