- Monchengladbach eyes Brandon Vazquez
- Talks are underway for a potential €10m transfer
- Monchengladbach seek Marcus Thuram's replacement
WHAT HAPPENED? According to Sky Sports Germany, the FC Cincinnati forward has attracted significant interest from Monchengladbach, with talks regarding a potential €10 million transfer underway. Monchengladbach's sporting director, Roland Virkus, scouted the 24-year-old striker during the international break in March, and the club has been monitoring his progress since then.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Bundesliga outfit are in search of attacking reinforcements after losing Marcus Thuram, who left the club as a free agent to join Inter. Vazquez's performances and goal-scoring abilities have drawn attention, and Monchengladbach considers him an ideal candidate for the central striker role. He has scored four goals in 17 MLS appearances for FC Cincinnati so far this season.
AND WHAT'S MORE: FC Cincinnati, however, are reluctant to sell with Vazquez, as they value his contributions to the team's success in the Eastern Conference. They have already sold his striking partner Brenner to Udinese earlier in the summer and do not want to part ways with both forwards in the same window as it would significantly weaken their attack.
