In the search for reinforcements for the center of defence, TSG Hoffenheim became aware of a free transfer player from Dortmund.
Hoffenheim wants to remedy a weakened defence: In order to make the defense safer, Dan-Axel Zagadou (23) has come into focus at TSG Hoffenheim, as the “kicker” reports. According to this, Zagadou fits perfectly into the search grid of the TSG managers due to his young age, his Bundesliga experience and his physicality. In addition, the Frenchman is free of charge.
Short, compact, clear
Zagadou’s lack of prospects in Dortmund: Zagadou has been under contract in Dortmund since 2017. During this time, however, he only played 67 Bundesliga games, which is mainly due to his susceptibility to injury. After the transfers of Niklas Süle (26) and Nico Schlotterbeck (22), there was no need for Zagadou to continue working in Dortmund.
Ability to develop as a plus: Zagadou’s ability to develop is a strong argument for a commitment, but the Kraichgauer are also looking for seasoned Bundesliga players. That is why John-Anthony Brooks (29), who is also free, is said to have attracted interest from Hoffenheim.
