Hoffenheim are interested in signing 29-year-old striker Philipp Hofmann from 2. Bundesliga side Karlsruher SC, according to Kicker.
Hofmann is available on a free transfer when his contract expires in the summer and is a candidate to become TSG’s No. 9.
David Raum has the most crosses in the Bundesliga this season but Hoffenheim have been unable to capitalise on these inside the area, hence their interest in Hofmann.
The former Brentford striker has scored 18 goals in 31 league games for Karlsruher SC this season.
