Even without LeGo & Meyer they still have Harit, Konoplyanka, & McKennie; who already played big roles in their midfield for Tedesco...moreso the first two, but McKennie was also a regular in the rotation; especially after Meyer was frozen out. Additionally: Bentaleb is still around; Geis is returning from Sevilla; their academy has some strong talents that Tedesco could use in the midfield (Kübler, Taitague, Tekpetey & Goller being the four that look like they'll be pushing for time with the senior team this coming season). On the signings front, they've brought in Serdar from Mainz, who has a lot of Demirbay to his game...although I have the same concerns with him that I had with Demirbay before Nagelsmann fixed him, and frankly that I still have Goretzka even after the progress he made under Tedesco. They also signed Skrzybski from my eiserne, who Tedesco may use as an advanced midfielder the way he has Konoplyanka. I think swapping Bentaleb (and Geis) for (a) deeper midfielder(s) that Tedesco rates more would be a good idea, but they're actually in a pretty good spot where things stand now with: Harit/Serdar* - Kono/Serdar* McKennie/Serdar** *Skrzybski, Kübler & Taitague **Kübler, Geis & Bentaleb They've been linked to Mascarell, Rudy, Delaney, & Bissouma, with some seriousness...though Dortmund seem more likely to pay the crazy fee for Delaney than Heidel, and I don't see Rudy leaving this summer; even if he's not in Kovac's plans for however long he keeps the job...and some very tenuous rumors connected them to Ziyech & Gbamin.
