1. FC Köln are looking for a replacement for Anthony Modeste. Talks are said to be well advanced with one candidate – and he is under contract with one of the billy goats’ biggest rivals.

Pohjanpalo before Cologne change: Joel Pohjanpalo is probably before a change to 1. FC Cologne. This is reported by “Transfermarkt.de” with reference to the “Geissblog”. The striker could replace Anthony Modeste at the Billy Goats, who joined BVB last week.

Short, compact, clear

Reinforcement from the rival: Pohjanpalo is still under contract with Bayer Leverkusen until 2023. However, the Finn no longer plays a role in the plans of those responsible and would therefore probably be available cheaply.
