The change becomes more real – Bensebaini to BVB would be like opening the door to Gladbach

In recent transfers, there have been rumors about clubs wanting to sign Ramy Bensbini. Now it is concrete between Algerian and BVB. Why the entire constellation makes sense – especially for Gladbach.

More specifically, the topic first surfaced three weeks ago: FootMercato, the French version of fussballtransfers.com, reported that Borussia Dortmund had increased their interest in signing Rami Bensbini. Contacts have already been made with the Gladbach left-back, and Penspini himself aims to make a difference in the summer. At the time, there was still talk of a €20m transfer fee – but that was way too high. The newspaper “Sport Bild” reports an impending change for a fee of twelve million. The Algerian was commissioned nine years ago, three years ago.

the situation
The BVB wants to get rid of Nico Schulz and usually uses Rafael Guerreiro at left-back, who must now also go. Sebastian Keel, the sporting director, in charge of planning the squad for one season for the first time, would almost wish a guy like Penspini was on his shopping list. In Dortmund, there will be a reunion with Marco Rose, who under Benspini made his Bundesliga debut in 2019 after moving from Rennes. However, Gladbach has been on the radar for a long time.

The fact that the current peninsula contract expires in a year automatically makes him a candidate for sale. While coach Roland Virkus confirmed in an interview with Kicker that he definitely wants to extend goalkeeper Yann Sommer and Jonas Hofmann and does not necessarily want to give up strikers Marcus Thuram, Alassane Plea and Breel Embolo, there is no such announcement regarding Bensbini. Even Ferkus declares without naming any: “One has a desire to leave.”

In addition to Florian Neuhaus, only Penspini was in question in this context. If he’s healthy and ready for the game, he always plays under coach Addie Hutter. However, Ferkus’ predecessor, Max Eberl, signed a potential successor to Luca Nitze last summer and Benspini’s performance has fluctuated dramatically for some time.

Foot Mercato should have been treated with caution as a source because the amount of scattering is large. However, in this case, the portal identified a scenario that wasn’t too far fetched. The “Sport Bild” report is now more specific, in other words: There is a high probability that Bensebaini will go to BVB.

Many Gladbach fans immediately remembered the following promise when they heard reports like this: “If Marco Rose says he won’t take any player to Borussia Dortmund, he won’t take any players to Borussia Dortmund. Done, more so.” However, Rose’s division The waiver from February 2021 applies only to the next transition period.

Dortmund’s efforts with Bensebaini fit in with the transfer strategy of the particular runner-up, who prefers to use slightly lower clubs in the Bundesliga food chain. Nico Schlutterbeek of Freiburg signed into central defense on Monday, and if Schulz and Guerrero leave, who knows if new international player David Raum of Hoffenheim could be of any use.

Gladbach, on the other hand, has taken precautions about relocating the net, and star bowler Joe Scully could also play in the side. There’s even a surprising replacement at Hannes Wolf, with the Austrian often holding the position of left-handed railroad player in Swansea City. Although Benspini has often assisted in the third position in defense this season, Borussia must make up for this lost reserve option elsewhere.

If he is fit and focused, Bensbini is one of the best players in the Bundesliga in his position. But for the upcoming turmoil, transportation revenues urgently need to be realized. Even a twelve million euro fee would be a welcome opening for your own activities. Gladbach can’t wait for good preparations.

After Marco Reus (2012), Mo Dahoud (2017) and Thorgan Hazard (2019), it certainly wouldn’t be desirable to lose another great player to an opponent, at least for a while. However, the amount of profits that Gladbach has been able to generate with the €60 million that BVB has transferred over the past 10 years should not be underestimated.
