At the weekend claims came from Germany of Werder Bremen working on a deal to sign Davy Klaassen from Everton.
That was then backed up by different German sources, with Bild reporting a fee of €15m is acceptable to Everton.
Klaassen himself was said to be undecided about the approach from Werder, and there was other interest for him to consider.
Then English newspaper The Sun waded in and stated: ‘Huddersfield considering £23m swoop for Everton flop Davy Klaassen as Werder Bremen also eye deal’
On Monday we pointed out that didn’t make a great deal of sense for Huddersfield, overpaying by around £10m isn’t something the club would be expected to do.
Tuesday’s edition of Delmenhorster Kreisblatt, local to Werder Bremen, report their editors have found out ‘there’s nothing in this story’ relating to the Huddersfield claims.
Werder are said to be in no big rush over the potential move and Klaassen’s agent Sören Lerby is quoted as saying: “I currently make no comment.”
The newspaper takes that as further back-up that something is going on with Werder Bremen.
