1. FC Köln is well on the way to absorbing large parts of the corona losses through player sales. After the departure of Ismail Jakobs (6.5 million euros / AS Monaco) and Sebastiaan Bornauw (up to 17 million / VfL Wolfsburg), the next rain of money is apparently beckoning.
As reported by ‘Bild’, there are some signs that midfielder Ellyes Skhiri will change. AS Roma want to sign the horse’s lungs, but the favorite is Fiorentina. As with Bornauw, 15 to 17 million euros could flow into the account of the FC.
Skhiri came to the cathedral city from HSC Montpellier in 2019 for six million euros and had been a top performer in the center since day one. The loss of the 26-year-old Tunisian would be difficult to absorb from a sporting point of view – Cologne can still use the money to make up for losses. The paralyzing offensive also urgently needs reinforcement.
