According to Kicker, Bochum are working on a deal to sign Jordi Osei-Tutu from Arsenal.
The 23-year-old full-back spent the 2019/20 season on loan at the then 2. Bundesliga club, who could reportedly tie up a deal for the Englishman in the coming days. Although no transfer modalities are reported, Osei-Tutu is entering the final year of his contract at Arsenal, meaning this could be a permanent deal.
Osei-Tutu spent the first half of last season on loan at Nottingham Forest but played just four Championship games before moving to League One side Rotherham in January, playing 14 league games.
The right-back, who played predominantly as a winger during his time at Bochum in 2019, played 21 games for VfL that season, scoring five and creating three.
After returning to the Bundesliga for the first time since 2011, Bochum finished last season in 13th, securing another year of Bundesliga football under head coach Thomas Reis.
