Bremen Reveals Lack of Offers For di Santo

German outfit Werder Bremen have revealed that they have not yet received any offers for former Chelsea striker Franco di Santo, who was briefly called up for the Argentine squad for the World Cup 2014. After struggling to get regular first-team football at Chelsea, the youngster moved to Wigan where he helped the club stay in the Premier League against all the odds. Since then, he has moved to German football with Werder Bremen. It has been quite successful year and this has led to the call-up for the national team.

He was included in the professional 30 man squad for the World Cup 2014. Even though he was unable to make it into the final 23 man squad, this is seen as a good achievement by the 24-year-old. A couple of injuries to key players like Gonzalo Higuain could have changed his fortune and he could have been playing in the World Cup. This has resulted in a lot of interest in the striker over the last few weeks. He still has two years left on his contract with the German club. Despite scoring four goals in 23 matches last season, he has been on the eyes of several clubs because of his overall strengths.

"No one has tried to get in touch with me (about the availability of Franco Di Santo). Franco is an important player for Werder Bremen. He is fully part of our plans for the new season," said the club’s general manager Eichen regarding interest in Di Santo. One of the clubs reportedly interested in him is Spain’s Real Sociedad. The Spanish outfit will be looking to replace Carlos Vela, who is on the verge of joining Arsenal once again after the Premier League club decided to exercise their £ 3 million buyback option a few weeks ago.
