Germany's preeminent footballing publication reports that VfL Wolfsburg attacker Maximilian Philipp is on the verge of a transfer back to his old club SC Freiburg.
The Berlin-native's stint at Dortmund didn't work out as planned and he was eventually sold to Dynamo Moscow. Philipp returned to German football with VfL Wolfsburg during the 2020/21 campaign, but eventually fell into disuse. He was loaned out to SV Werder Bremen during the second half of last season. Hiete and Müller note that talks - presumably over a permanent move to Freiburg - are "well advanced".
All told, Philipp has scored 28 Bundesliga goals in 152 appearances for Freiburg, Dortmund, Wolfsburg, and Bremen. His current estimated market worth lies at €2 million; an all-time career low. Philipp nevertheless did fill in as a lead-striker reasonably well for Bremen last year and even scored once. He scored 18 goals and bagged 17 assists during his time at Freiburg.
