Hoffenheim want to remove the release clause in Nadiem Amiri’s contract and Real Madrid will sell Dani Ceballos to Liverpool, according to Tuesday’s European papers.
AMIRI TALKS FOR HOFFENHEIM
Hoffenheim are hoping to tie Nadiem Amiri to a new contract, without a release clause, according to Bild.
The 21-year-old midfielder has been earning some rave reviews in the Bundesliga and Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Manchester United have all been linked with a summer move for the Germany Under-21 star.
The Bundesliga club managed to keep hold of Amiri in January, but now with a buyout clause of just €17million, Hoffenheim fear his departure. And in a bid to keep him in Germany, the club want to up the player’s wages in a new contract which will not feature a release clause.
Amiri only signed a new contract in June 2017 to tie him to the club until 2020.
Calciomercato reported in February 2017 that Liverpool, Tottenham, Atletico Madrid and Juventus were all watching the player.
