Udinese midfielder Alexander Merkel would welcome the opportunity to sign for Bundesliga club Hoffenheim.

The 21-year-old only joined the Serie A side in January after signing a five-year deal from fellow Italian side Genoa.

But he has found his opportunities limited and made just five appearances for Udinese since his move, with Merkel admitting a switch to Hoffenheim is one that appeals to him.

“Hoffenheim has a great, young team that plays attractive football,” Merkel told Bild.

“I would listen to everything. Because the situation at Udinese is unsatisfactory for me. In the plans of coach I play no role.”

Should the youngster join Hoffenheim it would mark a return to Germany for Kazakhstan-born Merkel after he started his career in Stuttgart’s youth team before transferring to Italian giants Milan in 2008.
