Kevin Volland is reportedly just a medical away from joining AS Monaco from Bayer Leverkusen.


According to L'Equipe and Kicker, the two clubs have agreed a transfer fee for the 28-year-old striker, who is expected to complete his move to the French Ligue 1 club next week.

German reports initially stated that Volland would cost around €25 million, but L'Equipe claims the fee will be below €15 million with the striker having just one year left on his current deal with 'Die Werkself'.

According to reports, Leverkusen are set to bring in AS Roma's Patrik Schick, who spent last season on loan at RB Leipzig, as a replacement for Volland.

RB Leipzig wanted to keep Schick, but haven't been willing to meet AS Roma's reported asking price of €25-30 million for the Czech international.

Leverkusen, on the other hand, should be ready to pay Schick's price tag and beat their Bundesliga rivals to the signing of the striker.
