German Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart are closing in on a move for Santiago ASCACIBAR.
Estudiantes de la Plata have reportedly received an offer of €8 million for the midfielder and all signs point to a transfer taking place. Per a report by TyC Sports, Estudiantes have apparently accepted the offer and the contract will be signed within the next few days. As we reported earlier during the week, the club had received an offer for ASCACIBAR from an unknown Bundesliga team for the player. The contract would be for five years.
From Zenit to VfB Stuttgart
It was widely being reported last week that there was interest from Russian club Zenit St. Petersburg in bringing in the midfielder but that deal has since fallen through. It all looks set for him to join the Bundesliga team.
