Sky Germany reports that Union Berlin are interested in Inter Milan left-back Robin Gosens as they prepare for their first-ever Champions League campaign.
Gosens could cost Union between €15-20m, smashing their current transfer record of €8.55m for Josip Juranovic, who was bought in January. Juranovic can play as a left-back, the same can be said for Jérôme Roussillon who moved from Wolfsburg also in January.
The other issue is that Gosens feels comfortable in Milan and is happy at the club. Gosens will only consider leaving Inter if they tell the 28-year-old that he can leave the club.
The potential signing of Gosens would be a statement of intent from Union. Since their arrival in the Bundesliga in 2019 they have been known for their smart transfer business signing players on free transfers or for very low fees.
A signing of such a large fee for a club like Union could suggest that they want to continue fighting for European places and not make this upcoming Champions League campaign a one-off.
