BVB turn attention to signing new striker

Borussia Dortmund are reported to be weighing up a swoop for Everton striker Cenk Tosun.

BVB have just splashed the cash to sign Nico Schulz from Bundesliga rivals Hoffenheim for a reported fee of £22million, but their spending will not stop there.

A new striker is also on the wanted list and reports are rife suggesting a move for Tosun could be on the cards.

Tosun moved to Goodison Park in a £27million move from Besiktas in January 2018 when Sam Allardyce was in charge.

The 27-year-old struggled for regular action under Marco Silva this season and only 10 of his 25 Premier League appearances were starts, with Tosun hitting just four goals in 29 outings in total across all competitions.

Silva is expected to move for at least one new striker this summer and that would push Tosun further down the pecking order.

Dortmund would face competition from Bundesliga rivals Schalke, while reports in Italy also claim that Lazio are in the hunt.
