Though Hollerbach quickly extended with his Hessen-based club following promotion, several other clubs are said to be interested in procuring him for the coming campaign. Germany's Kicker Magazine reports that 1. FC Köln - known for plucking lower-tier attacking talent at budget rates under the regime of sporting director Christian Keller - are the most active organization working with Wiesbaden on a transfer.
Kicker further notes that Wiesbaden aren't necessarily looking for a fee either. Hollerbach could head to the cathedral city in exchange for one of the strikers on head-coach Steffen Baumgart's roster. The most obvious candidate for a trade would be 30-year-old Armenian international Sargis Adamyan. Köln are known to be looking to cut the veteran loose and the player himself might fancy a move back down to the second tier.
