The Bundesliga team that, as of this writing, has scored the fewest goals of the 2020/21 campaign looks to have a versatile attacker in their sights. Twenty-three-year old Dutch international Michel Vlap generally plays in midfield, but also boasts experience on the attacking wings and can play as a center-forward.

The newspaper reports that Uwe Neuhaus' DSC is close to securing Vlap's services via a no-cost, short-term loan from RSC Anderlecht. Vlap scored twenty goals in the Dutch Erdevisie before moving to Belgium for a €6.9 million transfer fee prior to the 2019/20 campaign. His debut season in Belgium featured ten goals and three assists in 23 appearances.

Vlap's playing time has significantly decreased under new Anderlecht trainer Vincent Kompany this year. The Jupiler Pro League club is said to be very interested in getting his wages off the payroll during this window.
