Apparently, the football league member Borussia Dortmund was looking for a new left-winger in the summer. At Juventus Turin, the BVB was captured, but the transfer fell on the finish line.
With Marcel Schmelzer, Jeremy Toljan and Raphael Guerreiro, Borussia Dortmund currently has three players who can present Coach Lucien Favre as a left-fielder. The Swiss, however, is not entirely satisfied with these options. According to Italian media, the BVB had already initiated the transfer of a new left-wing defender.
Therefore, the black-yellow was just before the purchase of 25-year-old Leonardo Spinazzola. For a replacement sum of 25 million euros, the Italian national player who is currently under contract with Juventus Turin and who has been running for Atalanta Bergamo in the last two games should switch to the Ruhr area.
Juve gave the green light for change
The Italian record champion gave the green light and Also the player was not averse to changing to the Bundesliga, it is said. According to information from the portal “calciomercato” the transfer was only due to a severe knee injury, Spinazzola joined in May and eliminated it until at least November.
The split transfer could eventually have had a direct impact on the transfer policy of the Dortmund. For a long time, Jeremy Toljan, among others, stood in the room. Guerreiro also had offers and could have left the BVB. The black-and-yellow people may have vetoed the Spinazzola deal, too.
