Nicolas Gonzalez 50-50 on Stuttgart future as Dortmund circle

Nicolas Gonzalez rates the likelihood of him remaining at Stuttgart next season as 50-50, though he has not had contact with Borussia Dortmund.

A haul of 14 league goals last season was key to Stuttgart’s return to the Bundesliga, where the 22-year-old Argentina international has found the next six times and supplied two assists in 13 appearances.

Gonzalez averages just under five shots per 90 minutes and a goal involvement every 108.5 minutes – the only Dortmund player with a better rate is Erling Haaland (73.9).

Juventus and Tottenham have also been linked with a move for Gonzalez, who last November extended his contract with Stuttgart until June 2023.

The former Argentinos Juniors attacker is keen to take a step forward in his career but denied holding discussions with Dortmund.

“I give everything for VfB and I am happy here,” Gonzalez told Sport Bild.

“But I want to advance to the next level at some point. I would say the chances of me playing in Stuttgart next season are 50-50.

“I haven’t spoken to Dortmund, that’s my advisor’s responsibility anyway. But BVB are a top club.”
