Dortmund have just left Everton free to sign 100k-a-week star with three league titles


Borussia Dortmund appear to have left the door open for Everton to sign Wojciech Szczesny with Calciomercato reporting the German giants can’t afford the Juventus goalkeeper’s ?100,000-a-week wages.

It’s a problem that has followed Dortmund like a bad smell for years.

For a club of such stature and ambition, why have the 2013 Champions League finalists still not found a top-class shot-stopper worthy of the name?

Roman Burki flits from awesome to awful far too frequently while, in his compatriot’s recent injury-enforced absence, Marwin Hitz hasn’t covered himself in glory either.

So with Dortmund looking to put a difficult 2020/21 season behind them – one beset by individual errors and a horrific defensive record – a new number one is a must.

Andre Onana, Alexander Nubel and Gregor Kobel have all been linked of late but, according to reports in Italy, we can draw a firm line through any speculation linking Szczesny with Signal Iduna Park.

Calciomercato claims Dortmund aren’t going to sign a player over the age of 30 – especially when that player earns more than ?5 million a season (?100,000 a week).

That appears to be in stark contrast to Everton’s stance regarding the three-time Serie A winner.

Earlier this week, TuttoJuve reported Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees are willing to match the financial package Szczesny earns at Juventus, although they are unlikely to pay more than ?10 million for a man who started his career at Premier League rivals Arsenal.
