BVB has been back at the top of the Bundesliga since last weekend. While almost all eyes in Dortmund are on the most exciting title fight for many years, the Borussia bosses are already working on the squad for the new season in the background. A Premier League jewel should come into focus.
Whether as champion or vice – BVB will probably represent German football in the Champions League again in the 2023/2024 season. In order to be prepared for the coming challenges, the Westphalians are looking for reinforcements in several positions.
The Dutchman Crysencio Summerville should be an issue for the offensive flank. This is reported by the “Football Insider” portal, citing its own sources.
The 21-year-old from Leeds United is one of the few bright spots in the relegation zone, having scored four goals and two assists in 24 league appearances.
Well-known clubs are said to have long since become aware of the junior national player, including the high-flying English team Newcastle United in addition to Dortmund.
BVB would have to put a double-digit million sum on the table
Summerville, who feels most comfortable on the right flank and impresses above all with his brutal pace, is contractually bound in Leeds until 2026.
A stay would probably only be an option for the Oranje youngster if his current employer were to keep the class. Otherwise, a change for a double-digit million sum would be likely. The LUFC is currently in 16th place in the table, one point ahead of the relegation zone.
Curious: A little over a year ago, Summerville almost ended up in the 2nd Bundesliga. Talks between HSV and Leeds are said to have taken place in January 2022 and were initially promising. However, the deal fell through on the home straight.
