Fabian Schar: Basel defender is generating plenty of transfer talk

The 21-year-old centre-half is believed to be generating plenty of interest ahead of the winter transfer window - with Arsenal and Juventus also reported to be among his admirers.

It has been suggested that Dortmund are in pole position as they look to bring in defensive reinforcements.

The Bundesliga outfit are expected to lose Germany international Mats Hummels at the end of the season, with Barcelona said to be closing on his signature.

Schar is considered to be the ideal long-term replacement, but Zorc has attempted to steer clear of reports claiming the Swiss youngster is destined for Signal Iduna Park.

He told BILD: "The speculation about Fabian Schar being on his way to our club is one of many transfer rumours doing the rounds.

"Most of the time, these transfer rumours turn out not to be true."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
