Germany's main sporting tabloid reports that 1. FC Union Berlin are set to acquire French midfielder Lucas Tousart from city rivals Hertha BSC at a bargain basement price.

Hertha continue to try and offload their highly paid professionals ahead of their coming campaign in the German second division. Jessic Ngankam, Omar Alderete, Santiago Ascacibar, Maximilian Mittelstädt, and Tolga Cigerci have all already been shed. Striker Krzysztof Piątek's transfer to the Turkish League was finally confirmed yesterday. Hertha allowed the Pollack to depart on a free.
Tousart once cost the capital city's Charlottenburg side €25 million during the "spending spree" window under the failed Jürgen Klinsmann coaching regime in January of 2020. As was the case with Ascacibar and Piatek (also acquired during that window), the net-loss for the Berliners is quite staggering.
