Dutch U21 international Javairo Dilrosun arrived in the Bundesliga just prior to the start of the 2018/19 Bundesliga campaign. The former Ajax and Man City Academy product could not have gotten off to a better start, amassing five scorer points in his first four appearances for Germany's "alte Dame". The youngster remained valued at €18 million at the midway point of the 2019/20 campaign.
Numerous injuries, disappointing form, and a problematic lack of consistency have nevertheless led to a pronounced dip. Coming off a season during which he made only 12 appearances and failed to score, the 23-year-old's market value stands at half of what it once was. Hertha have nevertheless shown no signs of wishing to give up on him.
Feyenoord in the winger's native Holland may push Hertha into considering a deal. With Steven Berghuis strongly linked with his own move, De club aan de Maas find themselves in acute need of a winger. Club technical director Frank Arnesen, in confirming talks for with Dilsrosun, admitted as much.
"We have made contact. We are in talks. Berghuis isn't gone, but I have to look for a replacement," Arnesen told trade magazine "Voetbal International", "We made first contact a month ago. Back then it looked impossible to get him. More recently, we were told there might be a possibility of loaning him out. Let's just say the door is ajar."
Dilrosun has six Bundesliga goals to his credit over the past three seasons. He played in the recent UEFA U21 European Championships and has been capped once at the senior Dutch level.
