Two positions: Where Bayer Leverkusen wants to add more in the winter

After a catastrophic half-series, Bayer Leverkusen has to gather and regroup in the forthcoming World Cup break. At least two positions are to be reinforced in the winter.

As Bild and Sky report unanimously, those responsible at the Werkself have identified two problem areas that they want to improve on in the winter: Firstly, the left defensive end, where neither Daley Sinkgraven nor Mitchel Bakker can fully convince. As was the case last summer, Robin Gosens is the absolute ideal candidate for this position and would fit in perfectly with Xabi Alonso's preferred 3-4-3 system.

In addition, there should also be reinforcements for the midfield headquarters - it has felt like a construction site for years, as Charles Aranguiz is injured too often and Kerem Demirbay does not get any consistency in his performances. The picture speaks of the fact that a "top man" should come here.

If Simon Rolfes has strengthened the two problem areas mentioned, a new central defender could also come along. For this, according to the tabloid, a defender would first have to be given.
