German football journalist Stephan van Nocks notes that former German national team call-up Nadiem Amiri currently participates in only light training exercises with his Bundesliga club, Bayer 04 Leverkusen. Such measures are usually indicative of a forthcoming transfer. Amiri has recently been linked with a move to CFC Genoa in the Italian Serie A.
According to van Nocks, both clubs and the player himself have agreed upon a loan with an automatically triggered purchase clause. In this case, the 25-year-old Germain international will belong to the Italian club if they manage to avoid relegation this season. The German footballing journalist goes on to state that this purchase obligation is in the €9 million range.
This figure roughly equals what Germany's red company team paid for the midfielder when purchasing him from TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in 2019. A possible stumbling point to the deal remains (still active) club sporting CEO Rudi Völler's stated insistence that the club must add additional players before releasing any.
It might be the case that this old avowal amounts to little other than lip service in the present context. Panagiotis Retsos also looks set to move to Italy without a procured replacement. Moreover, Karim Bellarabi, Amine Adli, and Paulinho can also play in midfield. Die Werkself may also feel as if the time has come to give young 16-year-old phenom Zidan Sertdemir a regular role as a backup.
