Yann Sommer shortly before transfer to Nice: According to information from “L’Equipe”, Gladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer is about to switch from Borussia Mönchengladbach to the French first division club OGC Nice. Negotiations with the club of former Gladbach coach Lucien Favre had “progressed in the last few hours,” the newspaper wrote on Tuesday. Summer is expected in Nice shortly.

Short, compact, clear

Temporary solution with Tobias Sippel? A fee of 2.5 million euros is under discussion for the Swiss national goalkeeper, who is to receive a three-year contract – not a particularly high amount given the goalkeeper’s class and importance. According to “Bild”, Gladbach’s substitute goalkeeper Tobias Sippel could temporarily become the regular before a new long-term option arises, perhaps with one of his own goalkeeper talents.

Sommer has been number one in Gladbach for eight years: Sommer has been the first-choice goalkeeper at Borussia since 2014, when he replaced Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who had switched to FC Barcelona. In Nice he should close the gap of Walter Benitez, who switched to PSV Eindhoven.
