Reports on how the deal will be structured are as myriad as the sources reporting it, but Kicker reports that Germany's red company team are still aiming for an economical deal. This could be achieved by loaning out Gosens with a hefty loan-fee attached or possibly organizing a swap by which Inter Milan will receive Mitchell Bakker in exchange.
Gosens has long maintained that he would like to play top tier football in his native country for the first time. Moreover, the 28-year-old would be delighted with the chance to potentially impress German national team trainer Hansi Flick and reclaim his starting XI position from David Raum. Gosens maintains a €28 million estimated market value, meaning that the financial obstacles to a purchase remain quite steep.
🚨 Bayer Leverkusen arbeitet seit Tagen unter Hochdruck an einer Verpflichtung von Robin Gosens, wie auch @FabrizioRomano berichtet. Die #Werkself will sich hinten links verstärken und ist an einer Leihe des Linksverteidigers von Inter Mailand interessiert.⚫️🔴 @kerry_hau @SPORT1— Patrick Berger (@berger_pj) August 30, 2022
