Borussia Dortmund Add Rog, Aouar to shopping list

Sitting third in the Bundesliga standings with a 21-point deficit behind league leaders Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund are having a more than disappointing season.

The summer ahead will bring plenty of charnes with Peter Stoger already walking on thin ice.

The club officials have announced they won’t be extending the manager’s deal beyond the current season and with him leaving, a couple of players could also move away from the Westfalenstadion.

At the same time, the BVB are looking for summer reinforcements and their transfer activity will be focusing on young and affordable talent.

The German heavyweights are said to have set their sights on Napoli starlet Marko Rog who is currently out of favour with the Italian hotshots. He’s only started three games thus far and could be heading towards the exit door once the season ends.

Dortmund are also keeping tabs on Olympique Lyon star Houssem Aouar, Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

The 19-year-old is enjoying a breakthrough season in Ligue 1 during which he has thus far scored 6 goals and provided 5 assists in all competitions.

The French midfielder is under contract until 2020 and Borussia Dortmund are only one in a line of many Europe’s giants monitoring his progress.
