The French top club AS Monaco and its coach Niko Kovac are apparently interested in Bundesliga professional Ismail Jakobs (21) from 1. FC Cologne. This reports the picture.
Accordingly, the offensive player of the traditional club threatened with relegation with an annual net salary of 1.5 million euros should be convinced to play for the Monegasque in France in the new season. The transfer fee for the U21 international still depends on the league in which Cologne will play in 2021/22.
If after today’s game against FC Schalke 04 (from 3:30 p.m. in the live ticker) it is clear that Effzeh will be relegated to the 2nd Bundesliga, eight million euros would have to be paid for a Jakobs transfer. If Cologne were to stay out of the league, Monaco would have to add five million euros – all in all, 13 of these would have to be transferred to Cologne.
Jakobs is still under contract with his youth club until 2024. In the 2020/21 season ending today, he has played 25 competitive games so far (two goals, two assists). There has also been reports of interest from England in his services in the past. Leicester City and Brighton were named here as interested parties in the spring.
