Cologne –

Champions League instead of relegation battle? FC youngster Ismail Jakobs (21) is said to be facing a move to the top French team AS Monaco. “Sport Bild” reported on Wednesday (July 7th).

  • Ismail Jakobs is said to be about to move to AS Monaco
  • 1. FC Köln needs transfer income
  • Ismail Jakobs will travel to the Olympic team on Monday

While everyone is talking about a possible rain of money due to the transfer of Sebastiaan Bornauw (22) to VfL Wolfsburg, the first millions of the summer could come from the principality. Jakobs should be “mentally already in Monaco”, it says in the report.

1. FC Köln should collect eight million euros for Ismail Jakobs

The transfer fee is eight million euros. For this, “Iso” could have left 1. FC Köln in the event of relegation. His release clause in the Bundesliga is actually 13 million euros – too much for Monaco.

Jakobs himself should push for the transfer, sees the chance for the next career step under ex-Bayern coach Niko Kovac (49). Probably as a left-back and not as a left-winger, as is usually the case in Cologne.

Ismail Jakobs in the German Olympic team

Since the decision should be made before the training camp in Donaueschingen (July 16-25), Jakobs would currently experience his last FC days. Because, as is well known, the fast Erftstädter is in the German squad for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

The team will meet in Frankfurt on Monday (July 12), followed by the departure to Japan on Tuesday, where U21 national coach Stefan Kuntz (58) is planning a short training camp including a friendly against Honduras (July 17) in Wakayama City. The first group game will then take place on July 22nd (1.30pm) in Yokohama against Brazil.

Does the Olympic tournament fit in with Jakobs’ change plans? At his new club he would be very late in preparing for it. The Ligue 1 season begins for Monaco on August 8 with a home game against Nantes.

Jakobs comes from the FC youth team and celebrated his Bundesliga premiere on November 8, 2019, in a 2-1 draw against TSG Hoffenheim. He has played 47 competitive games (four goals, four assists) for the Cologne professionals so far. (mze)
