Transfer deadline day: Borussia Dortmund set for Can arrival, Bruun Larsen departure

Borussia Dortmund are set for a busy transfer deadline day, with Emre Can set to arrive and Jacob Bruun Larsen expected to leave.

Borussia Dortmund agreed a deal with Juventus to sign defensive midfielder Emre Can last night. And the German international is now set to undergo a medical exam this morning, before signing his contract and sealing a return to the Bundesliga. Can will join Borussia Dortmund on a six month loan deal, with an obligation to buy for 26 million euros, reports say.

According to BILD, Can will earn a gross salary of 8.5 million euros per year and he will pen a four and a half year contract with the Black and Yellows. Reports in Germany claim that Lucien Favre wants to use Can as part of a back three.

Borussia Dortmund announced the departure of Paco Alcacer to Villarreal yesterday, and another out of favour player is expected to leave the club today.

Jacob Bruun Larsen, who has yet to make a league start this season, is in line for a move to Hoffenheim later today, according to Kicker. The Dane has been linked with a number of clubs this month, including Bournemouth and Hertha Berlin.

But now it looks like Hoffenheim have swooped in, and negotiations are underway between the two clubs. It remains to be seen if Bruun Larsen will leave on loan or on a permanent transfer, but the move should be completed before the deadline.
