It was widely thought that Jorge Mere would be undergoing a medical at Malaga on Monday however, that was not the case. 1. FC Köln are still interested in the Spaniard, according to Kicker.
Not only that, Sampdoria are interested in bringing the 19-year-old to Italy, with the Serie A club €9 million plus future incentives.
Last week it was reported in Bild that Köln would be willing to offer Sporting Gijon a two-year loan with a €14m option to buy Mere. Since then, the Bundesliga club have signed Joao Queiros however, that isn’t the end of their spending.
“It is possible that something else happens,” says sporting director Jörg Schmadtke.
