In January 2018, Manuel Akanji changed from FC Basel to Borussia Dortmund for 21.5 million euros. Although the Swiss has since been one of the main tribal forces of the BVB, the Black Yellow does not necessarily seem to want to hold on to the 25-year-old.
Should a suitable offer come in, the BVB Akanji “will not put stones in the way”. It says “picture”. According to the paper, the pain limit of the stock exchanges is supposed to be around 25 million euros.
Akanji has been treated several times as a striker candidate at the BVB in recent months, but there have been no rumors of any concrete interested parties. In mid-May there was a rumour that FC Arsenal was keeping an eye on him.
That the Dortmund really let the inner defender go, however, one may doubt. During the last season Akanji 39 completed compulsory games for the Borussians, 35 times he was even in the starting eleven.
Schulz also a string candidate of the BVB?
The situation with Nico Schulz is somewhat different. The foreign defender, who was only picked up by TSG 1899 Hoffenheim for a proud 25,5 million euro in the summer 2019, is also supposed to be allowed to leave the club when he offers more than 25 million euros.
Schulz never really got into the role of the BVB, which was intended for him and hardly played a role in the second half of the season 2019/2020. In order to increase his chances of participating in the European Championship next year, the 27-year-old should be open to a quick farewell from Dortmund.

the “picture” mentioned earlier this week, moreover, the BVB even considers, To give Schulz, because otherwise one fears a “total destruction of the market value”.
Schulz’s contract in Dortmund only ends in the summer 2024, Akanji is still bound to BVB by the end of June 2022.
