Paulinho, Aleksandar Dragovic and Lucas Alario might be looking to leave Bayer Leverkusen in January, according to a report from Kicker.


Paulinho is yet to make his mark at Leverkusen following his €18.5 million move from Vasco da Gama in the summer of 2018, and the club are said to be considering sending the young winger out on loan in January.

Meanwhile, while Dragovic is likely to play the next few matches in the absence of the suspended Jonathan Tah, the centre-back has generally struggled to nail down a starting berth under Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz.

"I need to play games ahead of the European Championship. We now have five games left with Leverkusen this year. We will try to get something positive out of them and then we'll see what happens in the winter," the Austrian international told Kicker.

Finally, Alario is also said to be growing frustrated with his lack of playing time this season. The 27-year-old has often had to settle for the bench under Peter Bosz, with Kevin Volland being the preferred option up top.

It's doubtful that Alario will be allowed to leave the club in January, though, as it will probably be difficult for Leverkusen to bring in a suitable replacement for him.
