After weeks of speculation in Hamburg, HSV have apparently rejected Bayern’s 2.5 million euro offer for striker Jann-Fiete Arp. The club have countered Bayern’s offer by doubling the asking price to five million euros, according to Frankfurter Rundschau.

The situation has become a major story in Hamburg, with every move being watched by the press, including a live account of each car that pulled up to the HSV offices to discuss the potential move.

HSV coach Christian Titz commented to Sky Sports on the affair saying, “The last weeks and months were very stressful for the boy...The whole situation has slowly burdened him.” However, he hinted at a solution coming soon, saying, “Clarity is on the home stretch.”

Former HSV and Bayern Munich left back Marcel Jansen commented on the transfer, saying the transfer would only make sense if Arp was able to supplant Sandro Wagner as the backup striker.

The Arp saga continues.
