Tymoteusz Puchacz's name surfaced multiple times during the most recent transfer window. The young buccaneering fullback, second only to teammate Jakub Kaminski on the list of Poland's most highly valued footballers, appears ready to make the jump to the German Bundesliga.

Both Polish and German media sources now report that Puchacz has visited the Stadion An der alten Försterei as Berlin's Köpenick club hopes to finalize a multi-million Euro transfer. Union Berlin remain proactive in their attempts to shore up their defensive ranks in time for next season.

It has already been confirmed that die Eisernen will snatch up Greuther Fürth center back Paul Jaeckel on a free this offseason. Puchacz's procurement will definitely not be so thrifty. Transmarkt.de currently values the fullback at €4 million.

Polish sporting news source Meczyki reports that Union have already made an initial offer which was turned down. Germany's Sport Bild notes that Puchacz and Union sporting director Oliver Ruhnert, having already met in Köpenick, are committed to getting a deal done.

The defender has made an impressive 35 appearances a across all competitions for his club this season, scoring two goals and garnering five assists.
