Hoffenheim are considering a move for PSV defender Phillipp Max as a potential replacement for David Raum who recently departed for RB Leipzig, according to Kicker.
Since Raum left TSG, the club has been on the lookout for a new left-back. It was reported that Leipzig’s Angeliño could make his way to Hoffenheim as he is now surplus to requirements due to Raum’s arrival.
The likelihood is that TSG could only afford Angeliño on a one-year loan but the player is in no rush to make a move as clubs in the Premier League eye up a potential bid.
Max moved to PSV from Augsburg in 2020 for around €8m. During his time in the Bundesliga, the left-footed defender’s performances even earned him a couple of national team call-ups.
A return to Germany could just reignite his international career with Germany. Max is currently under contract until 2024 in the Netherlands and would certainly be more affordable than Leipzig’s Angeliño.
