VfB Stuttgart closing in on the signing of Angelo Stiller from Hoffenheim

Kicker reports that VfB Stuttgart are closing in on completing the signing of Hoffenheim midfielder Angelo Stiller as the two clubs are close to agreeing on a fee.

It had previously been reported that Stiller could cost Stuttgart around €10m which was seen as too expensive. The new fee for the 22-year-old is likely to be a high single-digit million fee as Stiller still has two years left on his Hoffenheim contract. 

Stiller considers the move to Stuttgart attractive as it means he will be a key leader in the team’s midfield under his former boss at Bayern Munich and Hoffenheim, Sebastian Hoeneß. The 22-year-old will be used to fill the gap left by Wataru Endo who departed for Liverpool last week. 

The loss of Stiller will not have a big impact on Hoffenheim as they are well-stocked in players who can adapt to play the 22-year-old’s position as well as with out-and-out midfielders.
