Borussia Dortmund’s draw against Augsburg has further emphasized the club’s defensive problems and, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, it is possible that the German club now accelerates negotiations for Andrea Ranocchia:

“Giacomo Petralito, FIFA agent tied to Germany, met last Thursday with Inter’s leaders. He explained that Borussia was not prepared to make a offer for Ranocchia, a player who Klopp likes and Inter for the right offer would sell. Ji Dong -Won (on loan from Borussia Dortmund and Augsburg’s scorer in the game eds.) can, however, be crucial since Sven Bender, the midfielder who plays in defense, also yesterday made ​​a mistake at 1-1: an own goal. Borussia’s leaders will talk to Petralito and Ranocchia again today and maybe even with Ji Dong-Won. What’s clear is that Inter has received an application for accreditation from Borussia for today’s match. Ranocchia is not in the starting line-up but the signs are there and Inter is still hoping to get an offer for the defender (10-11 million) or for Guarin.”
