Nico Schulz, Manuel Akanji and Mahmoud Dahoud are among the players that would be allowed to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to Sport Bild.

Schulz has struggled to impose himself following his €25,5 million move from Hoffenheim less than a year ago and has often sat on the bench while Raphael Guerreiro has been preferred on the left-hand side of defence.

With Dan-Axel Zagadou currently ruled out with a knee injury, Manuel Akanji should be in the line-up if the Bundesliga returns this month. But when the Frenchman is fit, Akanji is behind him and Mats Hummels in the pecking order in central defence.

According to Sport Bild, Dortmund are willing to listen to offers starting at €25 million for the Swiss international, who is under contract until 2022.

Additionally, the report argues that it would make sense for all parties if Mahmoud Dahoud were to leave the club as the central midfielder still hasn't been able to nail down a starting berth following his €12 million move from Gladbach three years ago.

However, Dahoud's agent, Reza Fazeli, told Sky last month that his client isn't looking to depart Signal Iduna Park.

Leonardo Balerdi, who has played just 19 minutes for the first team since his €15,5 million move from Boca Juniors in January 2019, is being linked with a summer move as well.

Finally, Mario Götze and André Schürrle look certain to leave while Real Madrid loanee Achraf Hakimi is due to return to Spain at the end of the season as things stand.

Ömer Toprak's loan spell at Werder Bremen will be made permanent if the 'The Green-Whites' stay in the league. Meanwhile, it's still unclear what will happen with Dortmund's other loanees; Marius Wolf (Hertha BSC), Jeremy Toljan (Sassuolo), Felix Passlack (Sittard), Sergio Gomez (Huesca) and Dzenis Burnic (Dresden).
