Timm Klose has been hot on the radar of German club Hamburg for a while.
They German side have been keeping tabs on the Norwich defender with intensions to add him to their defense squad.
Hamburg have had quite a challenging season, highlighted by many disappointing moments, however they are determined to make serious improvements to the team for their next season campaign.
This season, they have conceded 31 goals in their 16 league games, a result considered as disgraceful by many fans.
Recent media report from Germany indicated that in an effort to hold tight their defense line, the Bundelsliga side has shortlisted Norwich city central-back, Klose, for the transfer window in January.
However, reports from regional newspaper Hamburger have revealed that there might be a stiff competition for the player, as Klose’s agent has hinted that a move to Hamburg in January is highly unlikely.
Klose’s agent happens to be Gaetano Giallanza, former City striker; he was quoted saying “A trade is actually not possible.”
Hamburg’s manager Markus Gisdol has made public his intentions of taking full advantage of the transfer window to sign in defenders, especially after his team lost 3-1 at Mainz.
The team is currently in a desperate struggle to pull out of relegation, and with the sponsorship of six-time German champions’ billionaire investor Klaus-Michael Kühne, they may well consider signing Klose on loan.
Norwich city had signed Klose earlier in January, paying around £7million to Wolfsburg as signing fee. The 28-year old Swiss international consistently put on a remarkable performance in all the games he featured. Unfortunately, he suffered and injury and was pulled out from the final five games of the season.
City’s manager Alex Neil had dropped him in the last six matches, however his 25 appearance for Norwich were enough to win him the attention of Hamburg, coupled with the experience he had acquired from a record 75 games in the Bundesliga.
