Wolfsburg updates: Rebic a VfL target, Bialek and Siersleben set for new loans

Thomas Hiete of Germany's preeminent footballing publication reports that VfL Wolfsburg are planning to procure at least one additional striker this summer; preferably an established name who has previously worked with current head-coach Niko Kovac. 

In other transfer-related Wolfsburg news, it also looks to be the case that forward Bartosz Bialek will be loaned out yet again and that defender Tim Siersleben will remain with newly promoted 1. FC Heidenheim. 
After narrowly missing out on European qualification, the top priority for VfL Wolfsburg this coming summer will be to add an additional striker in the interest of augmenting the current attacking ranks of Lukas Nmecha and Jonas Wind. Germany's green company team must already compensate for the loss of Omar Marmoush, who just joined Eintracht Frankfurt on a free transfer.

German striker Kevin Volland - who worked with current VfL trainer Niko Kovac at A.S. Monaco - has already been linked with a move to Lower Saxony. Germany's Kicker magazine now notes that another striker to formerly work with Kovac - former SGE forward Ante Rebic - is in the club's sights. The A.C. Milan attacker maintains a current estimated market worth of €10 million in the latest transfermarkt listings.

Kicker journalist Thomas Hiete notes that the club's hopes for Polish striker Bartosz Bialek - who spent the season out on loan in Holland - haven't been quite met yet. The 21-year-old scored five during his loan spell at Vitesse Arnhem. Hiete writes that there is interested in the Polish youth international within Germany. Another Bundesliga side might potentially be interested in taking him on.

Another VfL loan-out due back in Wolfsburg might be on the move back out quickly, according to information broadcast on Sky Germany's "Transfer Update" show today. Newly promoted 1. FC Heidenheim are keen on retaining defender Tims Siersleben, who made 28 appearances for Frank Schmidt's 2. Bundesliga champions.

Sky claims that talks for a renewed loan for Siersleben are already underway and that Heidenheim stand a good chance of retaining him. Both Bialek and Siersleben will have to extend their current deals with Wolfsburg (set to expire at the end of next season) before new loans can be negotiated.
