Borussia Dortmund has secured the first transfer for the coming season. Left-back Ramy Bensebaini has reportedly joined from Borussia Mönchengladbach on a free transfer. The Algerian would thus become the successor to Raphaël Guerreiro, who was willing to change.
The rumor mill about the future of Ramy Bensebaini (27) has been bubbling for weeks. The contract of the coveted left-back in Gladbach expires next summer. A change in the coming winter transfer window was in the room. One of the main interested parties has always been league rival Borussia Dortmund. Now a decision should be made.
According to Sky information, Ramy Bensebaini's move to Borussia Dortmund is imminent. The left-back is set to come to Dortmund on a free transfer in the summer. The talks between the management of the Algerian and BVB are already "very advanced".
At the same time, the sports broadcaster emphasizes that the deal is not yet fixed. Officially, Bensebaini himself can only hold talks with other clubs from January 1, 2023 - and only then can he sign a contract with a club. Bensebaini has already informed Gladbach's sporting director Roland Virkus that he will not extend his contract and will definitely leave the Fohlenelf.
The transfer message ties directly to the news about the sporting future of Raphaël Guerreiro (28). The Ruhr Nachrichten only reported on Saturday morning that the Portuguese had decided to say goodbye to BVB. Guerreiro's contract expires in six months. Then it would need a successor on the left-back position. The Dortmunders have now probably found this in Ramy Bensebaini.
