Overview of Borussia Dortmund
The FC is one of the most famous and successful German football teams along with Bayern Munich, Hamburg SV, and Borussia Mönchengladbach.
With eight German national championship trophies and four DFB Pokal cups, Dortmund also won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1966 (becoming the first German team to win a continental title) and won the UEFA Champions League in 1997.

- Age: 19
- Transfer from: Man City
- Position: midfielder
Braaf, the first name in the list of Borussia Dortmund transfer targets, joined the Ajax academy at the age of seven, moved to PSV at the age of 11, and to Manchester City nearly five years later. Last season, Braaf was loaned to Udinese by Man City, and also scored 1 goal in 4 Serie A appearances. However, Braaf’s career did not develop as he expected at Man City. This is why Braaf wants to try his hand at Dortmund – a club that knows how to turn young players into stars.
Jayden Braaf hopes he will also be helped by Dortmund to become a famous player, and his dream is also Dortmund’s desire to buy him. Yes, despite knowing Braaf had a history of serious knee injuries and was not appreciated by Man City, Dortmund still spent 3 million euros, along with a 3-year contract (until 2025) with him.
- Age: 28
- Transfer from: Ajax
- Position: Striker
One of the outstanding players in Borussia Dortmund transfer targets is Sebastien Haller. This club spent a total of 34.5 million euros to recruit Sebastien Haller from Ajax. This amount includes 31 million euros upfront and 3.5 million euros in bonuses based on performance. The Ivory Coast striker signed a five-year contract with the Bundesliga team, sticking with it until 2026.
Sebastien Haller is a striker who left many impressions on the Ajax shirt last season. The 28-year-old forward has scored 34 goals in 42 appearances, including 11 in the Champions League – a number just behind Karim Benzema and Robert Lewandowski. He is expected to fill the void left by striker Haaland at Signal Iduna Park.
- Age: 20
- Transfer from: RB Salzburg
- Position: striker
According to many sources, the football club has reached an agreement to recruit striker Karim Adeyemi from Red Bull Salzburg. The striker born in 2002 will join the Signal Iduna Park home team after this season ends.
The 20-year-old star possesses a fast, flexible kick, good dribbling ability, and a strong desire to win. With his impressive speed, Karim often moves to cut into the opponent’s penalty area before launching dangerous shots.
In the 2021/22 season, Karim Adeyemi emerged as one of the best young talents in Europe. The German striker has scored 21 goals and provided 7 assists in 41 games for Red Bull Salzburg in all competitions.
- Age: 23
- Transfer from: Freiburg
- Position: defender
Another name in the list of Borussia Dortmund transfer targets 2022 is Nico Schlotterbeck. Two English teams Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur also have plans to roll out the red carpet to recruit this 1999 central defender. However, Nico recently decided to join Dortmund, and at the same time refused an offer from the Bavarian Gray Lobster despite Bayern offering a higher salary than BVB. According to BILD, the German midfielder will join Dortmund on a contract worth 20 million euros.
Borussia Dortmund transfer out
Besides, this summer Dortmund will have a rather large squad purge as soon as about 6 players will have to leave. They are Nico Schulz, Manuel Akanji, Thorgan Hazard, Julian Brandt, Raphael Guerreiro and Felix Passlack.
The reason this group of players has to leave is that they are no longer important to the yellow-black team. Or more precisely, they are no longer in Dortmund’s plans for the 2022/23 season.
The Westfalenstadion Stadium team wants to quickly liquidate these players to make room for Borussia Dortmund transfer targets like Karim Adeyemi, Sebastien Haller, and Jayden Braaf, rookies they bought in the summer transfer window this year.
Borussia Dortmund transfer rumor 2023
Mohammed Kudus of AFC Ajax is a target for Borussia Dortmund. It was revealed last month that Sebastian Kehl, the sporting director, had already spoken with his agent about a prospective summer transfer. However, BILD is now asserting that a number of English Premier League clubs have entered the bidding to sign the highly regarded midfielder as a result of his great performances for Ghana at the FIFA World Cup.
The tabloid continues, “Borussia Dortmund could be priced out for a move for Kudus given the competition from Arsenal, Chelsea, Newcastle United, and Manchester United.”
Mohammed Kudus is having a standout season with Ajax and has scored ten goals in 21 appearances for the Dutch team in all competitions. Although he prefers to play as an attacking midfielder, he can also fill in as a false nine. Two and a half years remain on the former Nordsjaelland player’s current deal with Ajax.
In short, during this summer’s transfer window, Dortmund has been very active when successively bringing back many bright names to the Westfalenstadion. To follow and update more Dortmund transfer news, visit our website transfer in football.
