Will he become VfL’s all-purpose weapon? Doukouré has already been to Wolfsburg

The new boss Peter Christiansen is getting started, there is a lot to do at VfL Wolfsburg. Plenty of groundwork has already been done on one potential new signing: Strasbourg’s Ismael Doukouré was reported to have visited Wolfsburg some time ago.

Peter Christiansen gets started. The working relationship between the new sporting director and VfL Wolfsburg officially begins this Monday, with the Dane making his first public appearance on Wednesday. Then we will see how good his German is – the 49-year-old spoke English during the negotiations, but should at least be able to understand everything. There is a lot to do for Christiansen and VfL, who are aiming for a return to the top after a disastrous season in 12th place, preferably in international business. A number of new arrivals should help them achieve this.

The Lower Saxons have been in the running for several candidates for a long time. Jörgen Strand Larsen (Celta Vigo), for whom Wolfsburg made a third attempt this summer, is apparently not to be convinced of a move to the Bundesliga. The Norwegian center forward is likely to move to the Premier League to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Doukouré had everything shown to him in Wolfsburg

According to reports, things are looking better for other players. First and foremost Ismael Doukouré. VfL also made efforts to sign the Frenchman from Racing Strasbourg last summer, the interest never waned and has now been intensified by sporting director Sebastian Schindzielorz. According to information, the player visited Wolfsburg some time ago and was shown around the stadium, training pitches and the VfL Center. Will the 20-year-old become Wolfsburg’s new all-purpose weapon?

In the first instance, Doukouré would probably be used as a six-man, he is classified as a destroyer who is also good with the ball. In addition, the Frenchman can also easily play right-back and, despite being “only” 1.83 meters tall, can also be used in central defense

Racing president Keller is rebuffed

Racing president Marc Keller emphasized in an interview that he had met with Doukouré, his family and advisor at the end of the past season and that he would like to extend the player’s contract, which runs until 2026. However, Keller was rebuffed, Doukouré refused and said that he would like to move. To Wolfsburg?

Advantage Wolfsburg? VfL was also early with Amoura

The defensive all-rounder could meet Mohammed Amoura there. As with Doukouré, the Algerian striker from Union Saint-Gilloise was an early signing for VfL. The 24-year-old scored 23 goals in 48 competitive games for the Belgian cup winners and runners-up last season, is agile and quick as an arrow, is preferred as a second striker in Wolfsburg, but could also play on the wing. At VfL, it is now up to Christiansen to create facts. The groundwork has already been done
