Hardly a day goes by without new (often half-baked) speculation about Ellyes Skhiri. The signs between the midfielder and 1. FC Köln are goodbye. The only question may be when the 27-year-old will leave and at what price.
After Skhiri advisor Michael Reschke spoke up and made it clear that it would be very difficult for the billy goats to extend the Tunisian international’s contract, which expires in the summer of 2023, the sports picture now after: Skhiri can go this winter from an offer of six million euros.
So the price tag is there. It remains to be seen whether Cologne will make money on the top performer this winter (the only remaining option given the current contract situation) or whether there will be a free transfer after the end of the season. The transfer window doesn’t open until January 1, 2023.
