Die Borussen are continuing their search for a replacement for Mario Götze after the attacking midfielder decided to leave the club for treble winning Bayern Munich. With €37 million in the bank from the Götze deal, BVB have room to splash some cash to find a replacement. After agreeing to personal terms with Kevin De Bruyne, BVB forgot that they would need to actually agree to a transfer deal with Chelsea, and the Blues were't too thrilled with the idea of losing the Belgian.
After being linked with other players like Malaga's Isco and Atletico Mineiro's Bernard, Dortmund have reportedly made a €14 million offer to Roma for Pjanic. The 23 year old found himself in the starting lineup twenty times this past season, but Roma decided to deploy him both in the middle and out wide. This would at least fill the positional void left by Götze. However, is a move for Pjanic enough?
If Lewandowski remains at Dortmund for another season, Pjanic is a good enough player that BVB can likely make it back into the knockout rounds of the Champions League. Would another Final appearance be in the cards? Probably not.
For me, the best course of action for BVB (still) would be to focus on prying Christian Eriksen away from Ajax. He's only slightly older than Götze and had another fantastic campaign under his belt, albeit in the Dutch Eredivisie.
