In the six-yard box
The biggest transfer stories of the day. These are the deals that are happening, or at least on the verge of getting done.
Borussia Dortmund are now set to sign Norwegian defender Julian Ryerson from Union Berlin, as reported by Sport 1. The two sides agreed to a deal for around €5 million and the player is now in talks to agree on personal terms. The German side is also interested to sign Manchester United’s Anthony Elanga on loan to the end of the season, but the final decision is still up to the team coached by Erik ten Hag.
Entering the penalty area
These moves may not be imminent, but there’s a lot of transfer fire in all the smoke these players and teams might be blowing.
Atletico Madrid striker Yannick Carrasco might join FC Barcelona before the end of the current transfer window. As Spanish reports suggested, the player is interested to sign for the team coached by Xavi and it might become a concrete option in the coming days as he’s looking for a new opportunity. At the same time, his future might be linked to the one of Memphis Depay, who might also leave Barcelona this winter. Atletico Madrid are not willing to let Carrasco leave in January as of now, but Barcelona hope that the pressure from Carrasco and Atleti’s interest in Memphis will unravel the situation of the two players.
