Adi Hutter just lasted one season as Borussia Monchengladbach manager, with former Norwich City boss Daniel Farke taking over. It has been a frugal summer for the club so far, with only Ko Itakura and Oscar Fraulo joining the club.
Hertha Berlin, on the other hand, have been extremely active so far. Having endured a poor 2021-22 campaign, the club have moved quickly to acquire players like Jean-Paul Boetius, Wilfried Kanga and Jonjoe Kenny.
