Multiple German footballing media sources are currently reporting that 1. FC Köln have found a hard target in their search for help at the right fullback position.
The Silkeborg-academy-man recently completed a big-money-move to K.R.C. Genk, but has been unable to establish himself with the Jupiler Pro League runners-up. The two German sources report that both a loan and outright purchase are being considered. Carstensen cost the Belgian side €3 million last summer and currently maintains an estimated market worth of €1.5 million in the latest transfermarkt listings. Köln head-coach Steffen Baumgart is on record as stating that he hopes to have a new player in place before the team kicks off its season in the DFB Pokal on August 14th.
