The agent of Czech Republic full-back Theodor Gebre Selassie has confirmed that his client is interested in joining Werder Bremen.
The highly rated defender has just over a year left on his contract at Slovan Liberec, but is heavily tipped to move to one of the top European leagues this summer.
Werder Bremen are currently looking for a new right-back and they believe Gebre Selassie would be a great addition to the squad.
“He is someone who interests us very much,” Werder Bremen chief Klaus Alofs said to Bild.
“And he also had great interest in coming to us.”
Bild claims Slovan Liberec would settle for a fee between €1.5m and €2m, although they could ask for more after the player largely impressed playing for the national team at the European Championship.
The player’s representative and a former Kaiserslautern star Miroslav Kadlec explains the player is ready to make the next step in his career.
“The player wants to go abroad, then take the next step. A move to Bundesliga would be interesting. Werder is one of several options,” Kadlec told Bild.
The 25-year-old defender has spent last four seasons at Slovan Liberec and he is now determined to leave the Czech club for greener pastures.
