The strong performances of Timo Hübers (25) word got around on the island too!
According to the Daily Mail, Cologne’s central defender is said to be on the shopping list of several English clubs. With Newcastle United, Leeds United, Crystal Palace, West Ham United, FC Southampton and FC Fulham, six clubs are said to be interested in Hübers!
How realistic would a change be?
The fact is: Hübers still has a contract in Cologne until 2023. Coach Steffen Baumgart (50) is planning him as a regular player for the future, which is why an early contract extension for Hübers at Geißbockheim is possible. However, Cologne’s financial distress due to the Corona losses (around 85 million euros) could mean that Hübers should leave the club if he made an immoral offer. In addition, Cologne’s new sports boss Christian Keller (43) only has a mini budget of around 46 million euros available for the new season (previously around 58 million euros).
The English speculate with a fee of over seven million euros.
