BVB, rumour: Apparently interested in Garang Kuol
That summer, Garang Kuol made headlines when he was 17 when he played in a friendly against FC Barcelona. Coach Xavi was enthusiastic. “What he did at 17 is unbelievable,” said the coach after the game against an Australian A-League all-star selection.
But not only Xavi is enthusiastic, BVB should also be loud sky have expressed an interest in the Australian. VfB Stuttgart has also kept an eye on the striker, a trump card for the Swabians could be that Garang’s older brother Alou (21) already plays in the Stuttgart squad.
BeIn Sports however, reported that Kuol could potentially move to the Premier League. Accordingly, an agreement with Newcastle United should already exist.
Kuol was born in Sudan but grew up in Egypt before the family emigrated to Australia as refugees. Kuol made his A-League debut in April and since then the teenager has scored four goals in nine games for the Central Coast Mariners. The now 18-year-old may also jump on Australia’s World Cup train, for the upcoming games Kuol was nominated by coach Graham Arnold for the first time.
BVB, Rumor: Has Liverpool already written off Jude Bellingham?
The rumors about Jude Bellingham and Liverpool are not new, but the Reds are also looking for alternatives on the transfer market. As UOL reported from Brazil, Jürgen Klopp’s team has their eye on Matheus Nunes of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The paper writes that Nunes would be an alternative if a Bellingham transfer to Liverpool didn’t work out. The 24-year-old midfielder joined the Premier League from Sporting for €50m this summer and immediately secured a place at Wolves.
In Wolverhampton, the native Brazilian has a contract until 2027, so a change is likely to be expensive.
