Vladimir Coufal is on Bayer Leverkusen’s shopping list and initial talks have already taken place. The current status of the negotiations:

Last week it became known for the first time that Bayer Leverkusen are targeting a winter transfer from Vladimir Coufal (90min reported) and that those responsible for the Werkself will travel to London to talk about signing the West Ham defender.

According to Sky, the first round of talks between the parties has ended, and there is talk of “positive” conversations with the Czech international. Coufal can therefore “in principle imagine” a move to Leverkusen. Good prospects for the Werkself.

Apparently, Bayer 04 do not want to push through a transfer of the 30-year-old with all vehemence – according to Sky, it is more important to work through other construction sites first. A new left-back and a defensive midfielder are to be signed before Leverkusen intends to further intensify the negotiations at Coufal. As is well known, Robin Gosens is the preferred candidate for the back left, in midfield no specific names have yet been announced.
