Borussia Dortmund have started drawing up a list of potential candidates to replace Roman Bürki as the club's first-choice goalkeeper for the 2021/22 season, according to Bild.
The list is said to include Benfica's Odysseas Vlachodimos, Ajax's André Onana as well as RB Leipzig's Peter Gulacsi, who is said to be available for €10-15 million in the summer due to a release clause,
Bürki has been a starter for several seasons, making a total of 228 appearances, but has faced a fair amount of criticism over the years, most recently after Dortmund's 4-2 defeat to Gladbach last month.
Even though Bürki signed a contract until 2023 less than six months ago, Bild claims the BVB bosses are starting to lose patience with the 30-year-old, whose only rival is 33-year-old veteran Marwin Hitz.
Hitz, who is out of contract at the end of the season, is filling in for Bürki at the moment, with the 30-year-old sidelined due a shoulder injury.
