HSV Hamburg are eyeing a deal for Cardiff City striker Robert Glatzel following his loan deal at Mainz last season.

That’s according to BILD, who say a deal worth €500,000 is being ‘discussed’ by the two clubs.

Glatzel spent the second half of last season on loan with German side Mainz, but the move proved to be a largely unsuccessful one as he managed just two goals and one assist in 13 appearances in the Bundesliga.

He’s returning to Cardiff this summer yet could be returning to Germany as Hamburg look to ‘strengthen their attack’.

They’re eyeing Glatzel, who still has a deal at Cardiff until 2022, and a transfer fee of ‘around €500,000 is being discussed’.

He knows the 2.Bundesliga well after a spell at Heidenheim from 2017 to 2019, in which he scored 24 goals and registered ten assists in 61 games.

It is presumably that which is attracting HSV, who are ready to offer him a way out of Cardiff permanently after a disappointing two years since his €5.4m move in 2019.
