With the first half of the 2023/24 season behind us, clubs will be turning to the winter transfer window to reinforce their ranks in the coming weeks and months. This planning will also include transfers which may not develop until this coming summer. According to reports, Borussia Dortmund are using this time to show interest in yet another striker in the form of FC Nürnberg's Can Uzun.
Uzun has been impressive in the 2. Bundesliga this season, scoring nine times and providing three assists. The reports in question indicate that Dortmund, Bayern Munich and Sevilla have already sent delegations to meet with the player’s entourage to show him a clear sporting project. The player's current market value sits at eight million euros, but could rise once again over the next few months if he continues his fine form after his current injury layoff.
Dortmund’s alleged interest in Uzun comes at a strange time considering the club’s current roster of strikers, but also may hint at the possible departure of players already in their ranks. Sebastien Haller’s general fitness has already been a point of worry for the club’s higher ups, with his future very much uncertain at this time. It may indeed be Haller’s current form that prompts the club to spring for Uzun either this winter or the following summer, but much remains uncertain at this time.
There is also still the question of Youssoufa Moukoko who remains on the fringes, and it looks like Dortmund are also looking to give Paris Brunner a professional contract very shortly. All this points to even more uncertainy over a position Dortmund are currently not lacking talent in.
