Bild reports that five first-team players want to leave Hertha Berlin before the transfer deadline day this summer.
The five players are Marco Richter, Dodi Lukebakio, Wilfried Kanga, Suat Serdar and Marc-Oliver Kempf. If Hertha recieves the right price for these players then they will allow them to leave immediately.
Richter has captained Hertha in their first two 2.Bundesliga games, which ended in defeat to Fortuna Düsseldorf and Wehen Wiesbaden, but there have been no offers for the 25-year-old yet.
Lukebakio has been training separately from the squad and has previously rejected an offer from Turkey. The attacker would prefer a move to England, Italy or France and a €10m offer would allow him to leave. Similarly, Kempf is wanting for the right offer from a club and if it arrives Hertha will allow the defender to leave immediately as he is the top earner at the club earning around €1.5m.
Serdar has yet to play for Hertha in the 2.Bundesliga as he has struggled for fitness but he also sees himself as a Bundesliga player but has yet to receive any offers from the first division but has rejected offers from Turkey.
Finally, Kanga has been demoted to the Hertha under-23s but has not played for them as he has declared himself as sick.
