U.S. international Bobby Wood set to move to Hamburg - report
United States international Bobby Wood is set to move to the Bundesliga top flight with Hamburg, according to kicker.
Wood, 23, was in Hamburg on Friday to sort out final talks with the permission of his current club Union Berlin, the newspaper reported.
The striker has scored 17 goals in 30 matches in the second tier this season, setting a record for goals scored by an American in Germany.
The standout performances for Union have not only won Wood a place in the 40-man preliminary squad for next month's Copa America, but also brought him to the attention of a wider audience in Germany.
Union president Dirk Zingler said earlier this week that they will not stop Wood from leaving the club, and kicker said he has a €4 million release clause in his contract.
Hamburg are safe from relegation ahead of their final game at Augsburg on Saturday, while mid-table Union Berlin play their final game of the season on Sunday.
Wood flies out to join the U.S. squad on Monday, so Friday was the last day to hold talks.
