Rumors about Borussia Dortmund's interest in Odsonne Édouard have already been haunted by the media ether, now BVB should once again keep an eye on the Frenchman earned his money at Celtic Glasgow.
"Sport1" wants to know that BVB "regularly" observed the 22-year-old in winter. However, the storm tank was not really convincing. The Borussia leadership is not "100 percent" convinced of the French Under-21 international, it is said. In the meantime, there has been a waiver of an obligation.
However, the statistics speak clearly for Édouard. The right foot has played 45 competitive games for Glasgow in 2019/20, scoring 27 goals and preparing 19 goals. The transfer from Erling Haaland might well have burst that you wanted to have a Plan B in hand in winter in Dortmund. With the purchase of the Norwegian, Édouard may have become obsolete. Especially since the striker "Sport1" could cost around 30 million euros. In addition, the report says that veteran Lukasz Piszczek should stay another season in Dortmund. There was general agreement on the extension of the contract, which expired in the summer, but the corona crisis had currently slowed down the negotiations. The situation is similar for a player who could inherit 34-year-old Piszczek as a regular. Thomas Meunier's move from Paris Saint-Germain to BVB actually seemed like a straightforward matter, but no quick agreement was to be expected during the football lockdown. There is also a question mark about wooing youngster Jude Bellingham from Birmingham City. The 16-year-old is still a hot topic in the transfer planning of the Borussia, a transfer well over 20 million euros and an annual salary of five million euros, BVB is said to be unwilling to pay.
