The FC Kölner "Geißblog" reports that the cathedral city side have identified Leverkusen striker Joel Pohjanpalo as their preferred Anthony Modeste replacement.

Pohjanpalo's departure from Leverkusen before the current transfer window closes is treated as a given. Whether or not Germany's red company team wishes to supply their neighboring club with a potential-laden attacking talent, however, remains to be seen. The Geißblog does not suggest that negotiations are very far along, noting only that the player previously loaned out to Malen, Düsseldorf, Hamburger SV, and Union Berlin will sign a fresh contract with the Domstädter next week.
