Report: Union Berlin among those interested in Raków's Fran Tudor

Polish newspaper Przeglad Sportowy reports that Croatian right-flank all-rounder Fran Tudor is determined to make the jump to the German top flight during the coming January transfer window. 

Several unnamed Bundesliga sides are said to be interested, with 1. FC Union Berlin looking like the leading candidates. 
Thrice-capped Croatian international Fran Tudor has had his fair share of form dips and surges during his career. The 27-year-old was last linked with a move to the Bundesliga in the summer of 2020, shortly after he was able to revive his fledgling club form with Polish League side Raków Częstochowa.

Some two-and-a-half years later, Tudor has not only assisted his Polish club in taking a commanding lead at the top of the PKO Ekstraklasa league table, but also increased his personal estimated market worth from a nadir of €450,000 all the way up to €2.5 million in the latest transfermarkt listings.

Tudor has evolved into a most versatile player, whom can serve as a fullback, wingback, or outright attacking winger on the right flank. He's netted three goals and chipped in a further six assists across all competitions for the "Medaliki" in the current campaign. Even though his current contract with Raków runs through 2024, Tudor is said to be eager to push for a move to a larger league this January.

Polish newspaper Przeglad Sportowy reports that there are several interested parties within Germany's top footballing flight. Current fifth-placed 1. FC Union Berlin, linked with the player before, are specifically listed as a club perhaps keen on obtaining what might be a perfect rotative fit for Urs Fischer's 3-5-2.

A price tag at or around €2.5 million may not necessarily be out of reach of die Eisernen. It should nevertheless be noted that FCU sporting director Oliver Ruhnert has made no secret of the fact that he hopes to trim Union's 30-man-professional roster before considering any new purchases.
