According to a report in kicker, Serge Gnabry could be loaned out to 1899 TSG Hoffenheim if the sale of winger Douglas Costa to Juventus (or insert another club here) does not go through this summer.

Gnabry, fresh off winning the U-21 European Championship with Germany, is enjoying a holiday before reporting for training with Bayern Munich. Talks between Bayern Munich and Juventus for Costa have stalled over the transfer fee. If the talks permanently break down, and Costa remains with Bayern, Gnabry is surplus to requirements and would be in a long line for playing time.

In other news, Schlake’s Leon Goretzka is on the radar of European champions Real Madrid according to reports in Spain. Goretzka, who played well for Germany in its winning FIFA Confederations Cup campaign, is signed with Schalke through next June, but can begin negotiating with other clubs in January 2018. Losing any chase for Goretzka to Real Madrid would be a blow to the German giants.
