Wilfried Stephane Singo
The next and potentially most expensive option on this list is Wilfried Stephane Singo, Haller’s international teammate is on a contract that will expire next summer. The 22 year old is an elite attacking full-back and wing-back famed for his dribbling ability. This is backed up by statistics, as Singo ranks in the 87 percentile for take-ons completed and winning 55% of his attempts.
Further, Singo is quite tall and dominates opposing wingers in the air – winning nearly 70% of his aerial duels. This would favor the right-back with Edin Terzic known to prefer taller players, having already signed Ramy Bensebaini and Felix Nmecha. However, Singo’s defensive actions dropped from a below average 2.7 tackles and interceptions per game to a woeful 1.7 last season. His 2.7 from just one year ago would be on par for what BVB has asked of its full-backs.
In a more dominant side, Marius Wolf has put up excellent performances backed up by good statistics. However, his success rate is considerably worse than Singo’s in every type of duel. Wolf’s main weakness comes in the air, winning 50% of the few aerial duels he attempts despite being fairly tall. His weakness is something Singo would solve while potentially being able to do everything else Wolf does at a similar level.
