Gacinovic--once part of the famed Eintracht Frankfurt "Büffelherde" attacking trio--departs Germany for good having made a total of 143 league appearances for both Frankfurt and Hoffenheim over the course of seven seasons. Kicker magazine reports that the Kraichgauer are set to pocket a €3 million transfer fee for the player.
Hoffenheim still have quite a bit of work to do in clearing dead-weight off their roster this offseason. Ilkay Elmkies, Konstantinos Stafylidis, Kasim Adams, and Sargis Adamyan are widely regarded to be other actors the TSG needs to get off its payroll. According to multiple German media sources, a move out for rising German star David Raum also seems likely to be completed.
