In the search for reinforcements for the coming season in the 2nd Bundesliga, Hamburger SV is apparently also looking at the Italian Serie A. An attacker is said to have done it to HSV.
Although Hamburger SV managed to extend the contract with striker Robert Glatzel until 2025 despite an offer from FC Schalke 04, the transfer activities for the offensive have not yet been completed.
Coach Tim Walter would also like to have another alternative in the center of the attack, especially as he would like to use a system with two attackers more often in the future.
If you believe “Bild”, against this background, HSV put out feelers for Italian center forward Manuel De Luca.
Ten goals and three assists in 2021/2022
The 23-year-old is currently under contract in Serie A with Sampdoria until June 30, 2025, but spent the past season with second division AC Perugia.
There, the 1.92 meter man scored ten goals in 34 competitive games. In addition, De Luca contributed three assists for his teammates.
Sampdoria would like to sell the attacker this summer, it is said. The club from Genoa is dependent on the transfer income.
Will HSV pay between two and 2.5 million euros?
According to the report, De Luca would not be favorable for HSV: A transfer fee of between two and 2.5 million euros should be in the room.
What speaks for the storm tank: De Luca comes from Bozen in South Tyrol and speaks German. Most recently, those responsible for HSV are said to have dealt “intensively” with him, writes “Picture”.
HSV has already landed four new external signings after another missed promotion in László Bénes (Borussia Mönchengladbach), Ransford Königsdörffer (Dynamo Dresden), Filip Bilbija (FC Ingolstadt) and goalkeeper Matheo Raab (1. FC Kaiserslautern).
In addition, the loan players Mario Vuskovic (Hajduk Split) and Miro Muheim (FC St. Gallen) have been signed.
