Report: Hertha wants to get new players after Bobic-Aus
Things are getting hectic at Hertha BSC. After a week of zero points, manager Bobic has to go. New players should come at short notice.
According to a report by “Bild”, Hertha BSC wants to sign several new players before the end of the winter transfer window. After the departure of sports director Fredi Bobic, those responsible around the new sports director Benjamin Weber want to lure up to four professionals to the penultimate table in the Bundesliga.
Among them is said to be Moroccan World Cup player Selim Amallah from Standard Liège. The club is part of the portfolio of potential Hertha co-owner 777, an American investment company.
In addition, Hertha is said to be interested in Maximilian Philipp from Berlin from VfL Wolfsburg, Gauthier Hein from AJ Auxerre from the French Ligue 1 and Jannik Vestergaard from Denmark from Leicester City from the English Premier League. The transfer window closes on Tuesday.
Weber, who was introduced the day after Bobic separated, emphasized on Sunday: “I’m dying to get started.” With a view to the approaching end of the winter transfer period, the former long-time head of the Hertha Academy added: “Of course, that’s an issue to see what’s possible.”
