In addition to the services of German forward Robert Glatzel, Hamburger SV have further augmented their attack with the acquisition of Danish forward Mikkel Kaufmann. The young prospect arrives in Germany's 2. Bundesliga on a one-year-loan.


Kuaufmann moved to the Danish record champions from Aalborg BK in January 2020 at the age of 18. The transfer fee at the time was rumored to be approximately €3 million.

Since switching to the capital city club, he's scored twice in 30 appearances. Though he hasn't been capped for Denmark's senior international side yet, he's netted five goals at the youth level.

"With Mikkel Kaufmann, we are gaining a player with a very strong mentality," HSV sporting director Michael Mutzel said in a statement, "Despite his young age, he's already gained plenty of experience at the international level. His aggressive approach play will also help us in our game off the ball."

"I'm very happy that the transfer has gone through," Kaufmann himself noted in a released statement, "I had good talks with the sporting staff of HSV. They gave me a good feeling that I'm the type of player who will fit into their system and that they definitely wanted me."

Kaufmann hasn't exactly been a bust at FC Copenhagen, but his market worth has stabilized around €1 million. As of yet, the prospect hasn't delivered the type of performances to justify his large 2020 transfer sum.
