Multiple German media sources are now confirming a Fabrizio Romano report asserting that the Köpenickers are preparing to invest heavily in a replacement. Croatian international Josip Juranovic of Celtic Glasgow is apparently en route to Germany's capital city and will join die Eisernen for a hefty transfer fee. The 27-times-capped international will cost Union approximately €10 million including bonuses.
If true, Juranovic will constitute the most expensive purchase in the club's history. The current Nottingham Forest striker cost the Köpenickers a reported €7.5 million in the summer of 2021. After flipping Awoniyi for a reported €20.5 million this past summer, Union possess enough money to invest in a player of Juranovic's stature. Ryerson's move to Dortmund lined the FCU's pockets with a reported extra €5 million.
