As we look ahead to Borussia Dortmund's summer and upcoming transfer window, the club are set to clean house and part ways with an ever-increasing number of players. According to recent reports per Ruhr Nachrichten, Dortmund U-23s midfielder Ole Pohlmann could join this list of players with Bundesliga interest abounding.

According to the report, Werder Bremen are looking to make a move for Pohlmann. Mainz had already been interested in the winter, but Puhlmann stayed and instead made his professional debut for the club against Heidenheim in the league.

Pohlmann's time at Dortmund has been rather underwhelming for the player, with the German having made only that sole appearance for Dortmund to date. He has however been pivotal for BVB II in the 3. Liga, with head coach Jan Zimmerman speaking in glowing terms with regards to Pohlmann:

"Ole is not only a difference maker, he is simply outstanding in this league (3. Liga). He is integrated into the team and contributes the joy of playing he has in training. He is a player that every coach enjoys working with."

Zimmerman also noted that if Pohlmann can't get time with the first team next season, he is hopeful that he can find a team that can give him more minutes at a higher level, because he believes he is generally too good for the 3. Liga. Pohlmann's 13 goals and 10 assists at this level absolutely underline this and speaks in favor of him getting more time at a higher level.

Ahead of the next season, Pohlmann has made it clear that he wants to play at the Bundesliga level:

"That's my goal, of course. In the end, you have to see how and where it goes on. I can't do more than my performance and I will do that every week - then soon hopefully in the Bundesliga."

Even if Pohlmann doesn't make it with Dortmund, it's clear that the player is ready to make the next step in his career. He has the desire and ability to make it in the Bundesliga, so his story will be an interesting one to follow this summer.
