Bayer Leverkusen’s Kevin Volland is reportedly close to a Ligue 1 switch and is just a medical away from joining AS Monaco.
According to L’Equipe, the German outfit has agreed on a transfer fee for Kevin Volland who is expected to complete his medical ahead of the AS Monaco move this week.
With the striker having just one year in his current contract, he would be allowed to leave the Bay Arena for a cut-price fee of less than €15 million, according to L’Equipe.
Bayer Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz has also confirmed the deal, stating that the striker was expected to quit his stay with Die Werkself this week.
He also added that Kai Havertz’s time at the German club had come to an end amidst an impending move to Premier League side Chelsea.
Havertz had spent his entire career at Leverkusen, registering 51 goal contributions at that time.
Since making his debut for the Leverkusen-based club in October 2016 he has scored 36 goals while setting up 25 assists for his teammates in 118 Bundesliga appearances.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Bosz said: “Unfortunately our squad isn’t set yet. I no longer expect Kevin Volland and Kai Havertz to train with us again.
“It’s possible that other players will be on the move as well. In any case, we have to bring in some players, too.”
Leverkusen is also on the verge of lading Czech international Patrik Schick from AS Roma as a potential replacement for Kevin Volland.
While RB Leipzig wanted to keep Schick, they aren’t willing to match AS Roma’s €25-30 million asking price, however, Bayer Leverkusen look set to meet their demands.
Volland was impressive for Peter Bosz’s side last season. He finished with 12 goals while recording eight assists in all competitions.
