We’re about 10 days away from the summer transfer window slamming shut across the world. Even this late into the window the rumors are steadily flying around USMNT players. Hamburger news outlet MOPO reported on Thursday that HSV have strong interest in bringing in right back Timothy Chandler from Eintracht Frankfurt.
Hamburg manager, Bruno Labbadia, has apparently been a long admirer of the U.S. international and is now ready to bring him into the fold as the Bundesliga season is set to kick off next weekend.
Chandler’s contract at Frankfurt runs through this season and would only cost about 1.5 million euros to lure away.
Earlier this summer, Hamburg purchased USMNT striker Bobby Wood from Union Berlin. If the move were to come to fruition it would surely make the club a must-watch for American soccer fans this season.
Looking at the rumor on the surface makes us a bit skeptical considering Hamburg already have Dennis Diekmeier and Gotoku Sakai competing for their right back spot. It’s possible they could view him as a left back option or a versatile squad player.
We’ll see if anything materializes on this in the near future.
