Paco Alcácer is the only regular striker in the Borussia Dortmund squad. In the summer, BVB consciously renounced reinforcements for the Sturmspitze – a decision that should take revenge if the Spaniard fails.
As the "kicker" writes, BVB looked away from an obligation on the one hand coach Lucien Favre saw "no need" and feared "burning money."
On the other hand, the two responsible persons Michael Zorc and Hans-Joachim Watzke did not want to risk a high investment for a player who is mostly sitting on the bench. Finally, the club leadership on the "enforcement of their authority competence" waived.
According to the report, the BVB would have for a striker with appropriate format at least 20 million euros on the table.
Before the season Watzke had made it clear to the "Ruhr Nachrichten": "Paco is much firmer this year, because he can take part in the whole preparation, so nobody has to pretend that we have no strikers." The Stürmer discussion is a discussion, which is led predominantly by the media and not by the BVB.
But that Borussia Dortmund in the winter on the transfer market becomes active, is not excluded. Mariano Díaz of Real Madrid or Aleksandr Sobolev of KS Samara are considered potential newcomers.
