Franco di Santo is reportedly targeted by several clubs across Europe

Franco di Santo is reportedly targeted by several clubs across Europe according to the player’s agent. The striker is regarded as a top material in recent months and this has been largely down to his impressive form with Werder Bremen.

After having joined the German club on a free transfer from Wigan,Di Santo has grabbed the opportunity with both hands and has been an important player for them. Helped by the goals from the Argentine striker, the German outfit managed a top-10 finish. Even though this has been a disappointing campaign given their history, it was a successful one personally for the striker.

His 14 goals and just 26 appearances have brought him under the radar of several top European clubs according to Gustavo Goni. Agents trying to help theirclients secure new contracts is not a new thing in football and this could be a case of the same.Di Santo is yet to sign a new contract with Werder Bremen. Since he has just 12 months left on his current deal, the player is now in an advantageous position when comes to negotiations. Since he is just approaching the prime of his career at 26, many clubs would be interested in signing him on a free.

“Yes, clubs from the Bundesliga, Spain, Italy, England and Holland want Franco. And there are top clubs.It's no secret that Franco feels very comfortable in Bremen, where he has played an outstanding season. We will discuss shortly whether he will play for Werder next season or another club,” said the striker’s agent. During his time in England,Di Santo was not seen as a prolific goal scorer. After all, he managed to come up with only 13 goals in 92 appearances for Wigan, who were ultimately relegated from the Premier League in his final season.
