Davie Selke is receiving transfer attention, according to Germany’s SportBild.
The 23 year old striker is currently playing for Hertha Berlin, having moved to the club in 2017 from RB Leipzig. So far this season he’s scored 12 goals across 20 starts and eight substitute appearances, and that has managed to catch the Premier League eye.
Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United are presented as the interested English clubs keen, and SportBild have some good news for them.
Signing a 5 year contract when he moved to Hertha Berlin, Selke managed to get himself an exit clause. The figure is a pretty reasonable €20m, applicable this summer, and it means a transfer would be achievable for either Premier League club.
It’s stated Selke is known to be a fan of English football, with the hint being he’d rather fancy a move to the Premier League. Despite that hint, SportBild then quote the player as saying: “I feel very well with Hertha, feel the trust of those responsible and realise that here in the next few years, something great can arise.”
It’s not for no reason footballers and their entourages leak the amount of a release clause, and that clubs such as West Ham and Brighton are interested. Selke either fancies a move, regardless of what he may say, or would like Hertha to panic and offer him a new contract.
West Ham and Brighton will have to work out which scenario it is.
