Transfer Rumors Surrounding SC Freiburg Defender Nico Schlotterbeck


Following the announcement that Niklas Süle is joining Borussia Dortmund, SC Freiburg defender Nico Schlotterbeck might once again be a Bayern Munich transfer target.

Schlotterbeck remained tight-lipped when asked about the transfer rumors and if he had talked with Bayern Munich sports director Hasan Salihamidzic.

After that, Sport Bild pressed Schlotterbeck on Borussia Dortmund, but the newly-minted Germany international refused to fall into the trap of clarifying the transfer rumors.

According To Transfer Rumors Schlotterbeck Will Join Bayern Munich

SC Freiburg has allegedly reduced its asking price for star defender Nico Schlotterbeck, who also has ‘transfer’ rumors surrounding him. He has been linked with a transfer to Newcastle United for merely €20 million (£16m).

According to Sport1, the high-flying Bundesliga club has raised its asking price for the 22-year-old German international, after rumors in January said Freiburg would only sell Schlotterbeck for £40 million, with Newcastle keen.

The defender has had a spectacular rise this season, with the teenager shining for Freiburg, who are presently fifth in the Bundesliga standings, and Schlotterbeck earning his national team debut.

And his form has grabbed the attention of suitors. Newcastle United is interested in Schlotterbeck, according to Sport1, with Bayern Munich also showing an interest in the young Freiburg star. Schlotterbeck, like 2014 FIFA World Cup champion Mats Hummels, is a defender with a lot of promise. He might soon be a starting center-back for Germany.

With the transfer rumors that Schlotterbeck might be sold for as little as £16 million, Newcastle could see this as an opportunity to buy the defender ahead of Bayern Munich in the summer.

Schlotterbeck, a 22-year-old defender who has been a revelation for Freiburg this season, maybe a coup for Eddie Howe’s side if the Magpies can agree a £16 million deal with the German club.

Building a solid defense will be an excellent starting point for the northeast side, and Schlotterbeck might be the perfect center-back to build the backline around with the Toon in decent form and now looking certain to remain up in the Premier League this season.
