Sporting director of FC Nuremberg Andreas Bornemann says his outfit are still hoping to snap sough-after Ghanaian midfielder Kingsley Schindler but claims they will weigh their financial options before making a bid.
Schindler, 25, has emerged as a transfer target for several clubs in the German Bundesliga following yet another fruitful campaign with Holstein Kiel in the second-tier league.
Bundesliga 2 side FC Koln are reported to be the only club to have put in a firm offer for the Ghanaian midfielder whose contract with Kiel will expire at the end of the current campaign.
“Betting is playing the franc anything but in the cards, after all, there is little money available. “At least we left the opportunity in our budget,” Bornemann told “CEF TV”. However, the financial room for manoeuvre – according to “kicker” a maximum of three million euros – is “reasonably limited, so we have to weigh well what we do in the winter, if that offers an opportunity that we can handle and which will help us with a high degree of probability can, then we would be willing to do something.”
Schindler has scored five goals and registered six assists in 16 games for Holstein Kiel.
