Spanish sports dailies "AS" and "Mundo Deportivo" - as well club-affiliated newspaper "Noticias de Gipuzkoa" - report that Union Berlin attacker Sheraldo Becker is on the verge of transferring to Real Sociedad.

The Dutch Suriname attacker sits on an expiring contract and would have been available this summer on a free transfer. The German capital city side nevertheless appears set to cash in on the 28-year-old, who maintains a €12 million estimated market worth in the latest transfermarkt listings. Becker has scored 24 goals in 140 appearances across all competitions for Union over the past five seasons.
Becker has netted a tally in the league thus far this year, though he did score twice in the Champions' League and once in the Pokal. His market worth has dropped by €5 million from a €17 million peak this summer amid a disappointing and injury riddled season. If Union can obtain decent market value for him, the Amsterdam native will potentially count as their most expensive outgoing transfer.
