Cologne coach Steffen Baumgart is skeptical about his midfield star Salih Özcan moving to Borussia Dortmund. The transfer talks are already well advanced. For Cologne, the transfer could bring fresh money that is urgently needed.

Warning to midfield engine: Cologne coach Steffen Baumgart (50) advises Salih Özcan to think carefully about a move to Borussia Dortmund. In an interview with the “Express”, the 50-year-old says: “I don’t think he would be happy if he leaves – at least at first.” Baumgart repeatedly emphasizes that he wants to keep Özcan beyond the summer. This is reported by “”.

Medical check completed: Salih Özcan has already successfully completed the medical check in Dortmund. The transfer is nearing completion. The transfer fee is still unclear, but should be between five and ten million euros. The clammy FC can hardly refuse the offer, especially since Özcan’s contract expires in 2023.

Performance explosion: Cologne-born Özcan drew attention to himself last season with very convincing performances. In the course of the season, he becomes a top performer at FC and a Turkish international. A change would therefore leave a big hole in the Cologne squad.
