Borussia Dortmund is currently working on its squad for the coming season. SPOX reveals which arrivals and departures have already been determined.
The football season is over for the clubs, and the ball will be resting on the pitch for a while. However, the club bosses of the Bundesliga clubs have no reason to take a break, because now is the best time to reorganize the squad for the upcoming 2023/24 season to improve.
This also applies to Borussia Dortmund, who missed the German championship by just one goal last season. The black and yellow want to dare a new attack on the shell in the next season and have therefore already become active on the transfer market.
SPOX presents you all previous arrivals and departures of the German runner-up.
BVB, transfers: These arrivals and departures from Borussia Dortmund are certain
So far, BVB has bagged a newcomer. This is defender Ramy Bensebaini, who came on a free transfer from league rivals Borussia Mönchengladbach. The 28-year-old signed a four-year contract in Dortmund. “Ramy is a player in his prime, he has gained a lot of national and international experience in the Bundesliga, the French Ligue 1, the Champions League and the Europa League and is also an integral part of his home country’s selection,” said sporting director Sebastian Kehl.
Bensebaini is the only new signing so far, but the list of departures is a lot longer. The change from midfield star Jude Bellingham is particularly painful. The Englishman leaves BVB after three years for Champions League record winner Real Madrid. The only positive thing about the change is the transfer fee that the Madrilenians have to shell out: 103 million euros plus bonuses.
Furthermore, Felix Passlack, Ansgar Knauff, Raphael Guerreiro, Luca Unbehaun and Anthony Modeste will no longer play for BVB from next season. Passlack joins VfL Bochum on a free transfer, Knauff, who has only been on loan until now, has been signed by Eintracht Frankfurt. Unbehaun and Modeste have not yet answered the question of their new employer.
On the other hand, Guerreiro is certain that he will move to Bayern Munich. FCB supervisory board member Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed this in an interview with DAZN.
