With concerted interest registered in the German U-21 international from the Premier League, Freiburg are holding out for more
Kevin Schade is one of the brightest youngsters in German football and won’t be allowed to leave without a significant financial compensation for the club.
The 20-year-old breakout star played 813 minutes across 20 games in the Bundesliga last season. He scored four goals and assisted one but had done enough to inspire interest from Brentford who want to add him to their attacking troop.
German publication Kicker has said the Bees have prepared another bid after an initial €15m offer was rejected by the Bundesliga campaigners.
Freiburg Sporting Director, Klemens Hartenbach is reluctant to sell Schade as he has potential to become an even bigger player at the club.
The flying winger who is also eligible for Nigeria missed the last two months of the 2021/22 season after an abdominal muscle injury.
Freiburg are also in the driving seat as there’s no clause on his contract necessitating discussions if an offer comes for him.
The winger was the fastest player last season in the league, clocking 36.7km/h. He can also play in a variety of positions across the attack and in the midfield and is rated as one of the best young players in German football.
