With Serbian assist-meister Filip Kostic likely to depart the Rhein-Main metropolis in a matter of days, Markus Krösche and the SGE administrative team are reportedly looking north for their potential replacement. Germany's Sport Bild reports that Ola Solbakken of FK Bødo-Glimt is a candidate for the Adlerträger.

The 23-year-old, who can play on both flanks, sits on an expiring contract for his Norwegian club. According to the tabloid, the twice capped Norwegian international is not keen on renewing his contract after the Eliteserien campaign ends in November. Solbakken has scored a total of 17 goals and chipped in a further 18 assists over the course of two plus seasons with his current club.

After some exceptional performances for Glimt during this years UEFA Conference League campaign (six goals, two assists) many clubs have developed an interest in him. AS Roma is listed as a competitor for the German side in pursuit of a player presently worth an estimated €2 million.
