Cologne's Özcan apparently completed a medical check

Midfielder Salih Özcan from 1. FC Köln is about to move to Borussia Dortmund. As picture and sports picture report, the 24-year-old is already completing his medical check-up at BVB today.

Özcan is still under contract in Cologne until 2023, with a transfer fee of ten million euros.

In Cologne under coach Steffen Baumgart, Özcan was the undisputed top performer in midfield last season and made a name for himself as a defensively strong sweeper. BVB is looking for just such a type of player, especially since Axel Witsel is leaving the club.

FC loses a real homegrown player in Özcan. The Turkish national player was born in the Rhine metropolis and came to the club at the age of nine. He went through all the youth teams there, only spending the 2019/20 season on loan at the second division club Holstein Kiel.

RB Leipzig and Olympique Lyon are said to have shown interest in Özcan, as well as some clubs from Istanbul.
