Gladbach have welcomed Ramy Bensebaini, Ko Itakura and Lars Stindl back in training, but are sweating over the fitness of Nico Elvedi ahead of Friday's clash with Hertha.

After missing out on training yesterday, Ramy Bensebaini and Ko Itakura were both involved today, as was club captain Lars Stindl, but Nico Elvedi was only able to train individually.
"Bensebaini and Itakura weren't able to train on Tuesday, but we managed to integrate them into today's session again," Farke told reporters at a press conference.
"Nico Elvedi also had a knock and trained individually. It's looking better for Stindl, who was involved for parts of training again. He won't be able to play 90 minutes on Friday, but it would be nice to have him as an option again."
With around two weeks left of the transfer window, Farke also confirmed reports that Gladbach are looking to strengthen in attack.
"We're not exactly overloaded with attacking options, so [sporting director] Roland Virkus and I aren't hiding the fact that we're looking at potential signings. Any decision has to make sense though," he noted.
