Bundesliga giants Hamburger SV have moved to confirm their interest in FC Copenhagen striker Andreas Cornelius.
The Imtech Arena outfit are looking to sign a new centre forward given that star player Heung-Min Son could easily leave at the end of the current campaign.
HSV were believed to be pondering a move for Danish striker Andreas Cornelius and sporting director Frank Arnesen has confirmed the rumours.
“Of course, Cornelius would be very interesting for HSV,” Arnesen explained to Danish newspaper Tipsbladet.
“He is tall, robust, strong with both feet, and has recently developed brilliantly.”
The problem is the Red Shorts first have to sell in order to raise cash for an assault on Cornelius, who has seen his name linked with a number of clubs from English Premier League.
The 20-year-old has exploded onto the biggest stage this season, scoring 18 goals in 29 league appearances for the Danish giants.
Cornelius has earned no less than 7 Denmark caps, and he scored his first goal for the senior national team in the 2014 World Cup qualifying victory over Czech Republic.
