Union Berlin reach agreement with Monaco to sign Kevin Volland

Union Berlin yesterday reached an agreement with Monaco to sign German forward Kevin Volland.

As reported by Sky Germany, Union will pay an initial €4m plus a further €1.5m in bonus payments to the Principality club. Volland, who scored three and created three in 17 Ligue 1 games last season, wants to join Union and according to Florian Plettenberg, a medical has already been scheduled.

Union initiated contact with Monaco for Volland last month but now there’s been a breakthrough in negotiations. Patrick Berger further reports that the deal is expected to be finalised and official on Thursday. And as Union prepare for a Champions League campaign, the signing of Volland is a significant addition to their squad.

Volland (31) will become Union’s latest arrival following the signing of Inter’s Robin Gosens yesterday, in addition to Lucas Tousart, Mikkel Kaufmann, Diogo Leite – signed on a permanent basis – Benedict Hollerbach, Alexander Schwolow, Brenden Aaronson, Datro Fofana and Alex Kral.
