VfL Bochum: These are the transfer plans for the winter

An important transfer window is coming up for VfL Bochum. The Revierclub is in the middle of a relegation battle and needs to improve some positions in terms of personnel. VfL manager Patrick Fabian has clear plans for the upcoming transfer period.

The former VfL player Patrick Fabian (35) has only been in the position of Managing Director Sport since the beginning of September. During his three-month tenure, the 35-year-old made a difficult decision. Fabian dismissed Thomas Reis as head coach and hired Thomas Letsch as his successor - with success. In nine games under Letsch, Bochum won a total of five. Now there are more difficult decisions to be made for Fabian.

Thomas Letsch and Patrick Fabian agree that VfL must be active in winter. Two player profiles are at the center of the search. There should be a big, strong six and a fast, strong central defender. The hottest rumor concerns ex-pro Maxim Leitsch (24) from Mainz 05, but his return is now unlikely. A change is entirely dependent on how Mainz plans with the defender.

The search for potential newcomers is restricted by the low budget of 1.5 million euros, which is available from the total budget (31.5 million) for new players. However, it means that the board could increase the amount to a mid-single-digit million amount. Extra money that can also be contributed thanks to the World Cup bonuses for Takuma Asano (28) and Armel Bella-Kotchap (20/now Southampton).

On the departure side, only a change from Tarsis Bonga (25) is currently indicated. Further sales candidates should arise in the winter preparations. "Momentum will come in in December," Letsch told BILD. Manager Fabian recently denied rumors about the departure of substitute keeper Michael Esser (35) to 1. FC Nürnberg.
