Vissel Kobe agree deal for Lukas Podolski?

Vissel Kobe have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Lukas Podolski from Turkish giants Galatasaray.

According to The Hurriyet, Podolski is one the verge of a move to J.League after a €2.7m fee has been agreed between the two clubs.

The 31-year-old German forward had agreed a three-year deal with Vissel worth €15m.

“We are very happy with him. It’s not possible for us to sell him for a lower price,” Galatasaray told Vissel Kobe before the final transfer fee was agreed, the Turkish newspaper’s report said.

Podolski, who retired from international duty last year, joined Galatasaray from Arsenal in 2015 after a loan spell at Inter Milan.
