Media: Augsburg is hunting HSV defenders

The Hamburg SV works hard on its cadre for the upcoming two-state season. Nine players already committed to the former Bundesliga Dino. Other professionals will have to leave the redheads because of the reduced budget. The focus is now on a defensive player.

Rick van Drongelen was one of the few constants in the HSV during the past season. The Dutch U21 national player was on the field in all 39 obligatory games, achieving two goals.

The fact that the 20-year-old continues to run in the Volkspark stadium is becoming increasingly unlikely. As the “Sports Image” reports, the FC Augsburg is among other things interested in the inner defender. The Fugger Cities are looking for a replacement for Martin Hinteregger, who is expected to be sold to Frankfurt.

PSV Eindhoven is also said to have extended its sensors to van Drongelen. Selling the Youngster would flush more money into the HSV coffers. The defensive player, who is still tied to the Hanseatic feast until 2022, With an offer of more than eight million euros, HSV would have created a sound financial basis for the breakthrough, along with the proceeds of the imminent 12-million-euro transfer from left-wing defender Douglas Santos to Zenit St. Petersburg.
