Guilavogui should also stay

Borussia Mönchengladbach, Borussia Dortmund, FC Brentford – the list of people interested in a possible winter transfer of left winger Omar Marmoush from VfL Wolfsburg is long. The 23-year-old, who scored 3 goals in 15 league appearances in the first half of the season, has reportedly rejected all offers from Lower Saxony to extend his contract, which expires this summer. Nevertheless, the club are still struggling to retain the coveted attacking power, ‘Wolfe’ coach Niko Kovac has announced.
