U.S. international forward Josh Sargent might dress up for a new team next season. According to multiple reports from Europe, Werder Bremen will look to sell Sargent in order to ease their troubled financial situation.
Sargent is considered one of Werder’s most talented youngsters, making his sale an ideal way to generate a quick profit. The American is not alone on the transfer list, as the club is ready to listen to offers for several other players.
Sources close to Sargent told ESPN that the 21-year-old player wouldn’t mind leaving but will only consider a move to a club from the top half of the Bundesliga table. Clubs that fit the criteria and would be interested in the player are believed to be Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen.
Sargent, who scored seven goals this season, has one game to play with Werder in 2020-21, and it could prove to be the most important one in the entire campaign. They need to win against Monchengladbach and hope Arminia Bielefeld doesn’t win to secure a stay in Bundesliga. Otherwise, Bremen faces the possibility of being relegated to the second tier of German soccer competition.
Josh Sargent has been with Werder since 2017, when he joined the club’s youth academy. He made his debut for the first team in 2018 and has since scored 13 goals and dished nine assists in 80 games.
