Germany's preeminent footballing publication reports that KSC midfielder Tim Breithaupt's move to FC Augsburg is close to being finalized.
The youngster has turned the heads of more than a few scouts with his stalwart performances as a versatile six who can play as a sweeper and fill in as a central defender. The player's estimated market worth shot up to €3.5 million over the course of a season in which he made 24 mostly solid appearances for the KSC across all competitions.
Despite not playing very far forward, Breithaupt scored two goals and chipped in one assist. Several top-tier sides were reported to be interested in him during the winter transfer period. As of yet, the Offenburg-native has only been capped at the Germany U20 level. The new, grander stage might help rectify that.
