Gladbach updates:
Concrete exit links for Beyer and Elvedi surface

By Peter Vice   @ViceytheSS

There's still more news emanating out of Gladbach on what has been a busy day for the foals. 

Germany's main sporting tabloid reports that Eintracht Frankfurt are prepared to make a play for defender Jordan Beyer. 

Meanwhile, other sources report that OGC Nice and West Ham United are competing for the services of Nico Elvedi.

Eintracht Frankfurt are, according to German tabloid Sport Bild, interested in acquiring Gladbach defender Louis Jordan Beyer on loan. The SGE defensive ranks are thinned out following injuries to Almamy Touré and the newly acquired Aurelio Buta. Midfielder Kristijan Jakic has recently been deupitzied to fill in in Oliver Glasner's new back-four.


The move would make sense for both parties. Beyer has not logged a single minute under the new coaching regime of Daniel Farke. The 22-year-old has already been linked with a loan-out. Moreover, the youngster's style of play slightly mimics that of the departed Stefan Ilsanker; who often thrived playing in defense for the team.

Moving Beyer may still not prove a wise moves, if other reports are to be believed. Apparently, one of Gladbach's starting defenders is being hotly courted by both West Ham United and OGC Nice. West Ham have already made an offer for Swiss international Nico Elvedi, as per Blick magazine in the defender's native Switzerland.

France's L'Equipe adds that Elvedi's Swiss compatriot and former Gladbach trainer Lucien Favre wishes to bring Elvedi to OGC Nice. Both the French journal and the Swiss source do note that a stay in Gladbach, where Elvedi still has a contract until 2024, also remains a strong possibility.

It has indeed already been a busy day at Gladbach, with a new €8 million dollar-signing unveiled and a supposed €10 million game of poker with RB Leipzig over the transfer of former BMG sporting director Max Eberl to the German Red Bulls supposedly taking place.
