Blues are in talks with Borussia Mönchengladbach striker Peniel Mlapa.
According to the German city Düsseldorf’s newspaper BILD the 24-year-old “is in talks with English second league side Birmingham City” and is subject to a £500,000 move.
Translated from the newspaper the small segmented article says:
“Birmingham is at one with Mlapa – Blues bet £500.000, Mlapa would come, only Borussia needs to give the “OK”!”
After joining the club for €3 million in May 2012 on a four-year contract he scored just 3 in 24 appearances last year, but at 6’5, he could make a decent plan B for when things aren’t working.
If the report is true, Gary Rowett is setting his sights high to bring in another forward and clearly see’s something in the German International.
