Jeremy Toljan to return to Dortmund, Mahmoud Dahoud to stay?

By Rune Gjerulff

Prior to the coronavirus outbreak, Jeremy Toljan was looking likely to join Sassuolo on a permanent deal while Mahmoud Dahoud received inquiries from Italy and Spain. Now, it seems like they won't get the moves they wanted.

Jeremy Toljan is set to return to Borussia Dortmund when his loan spell at US Sassuolo is over at the end of the season, according to the Funke Mediengruppe.

Sassuolo were looking to trigger Toljan's €5 million release clause to sign him on a permanent deal, but probably won't do so because of the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

A permanent move to Sassuolo seems particularly unlikely for the 25-year-old considering the fact that club owner Giorgio Squinzi died in October and his heirs are less willing to invest in football.

Meanwhile, the coronavirus outbreak is also said to be affecting Mahmoud Dahoud's career plans. The 24-year-old had put his mind to a summer move and was reportedly subject to interest from Italy and Spain.

However, with those two countries hit exceptionally hard by the pandemic, the BVB midfielder will now have to change his plans and may have to stay at Signal Iduna Park after all.

Both Toljan and Dahoud are under contract with Dortmund until 2022.
