Club Brugge keen on €15m-rated Jean-Philippe Mateta (Mainz)

French striker Jean-Philippe Mateta wants to leave Mainz 05 after two seasons and one club has already made contact.

According to BILD, Mainz will listen to suitable offers for Mateta, 23, and have put a €15m valuation on him.

Club Brugge are the first to step forward for Mateta as they search for a replacement for France-bound Jonathan David.

They have made a formal inquiry for Mateta, although no official bid has been made yet.

Brugge are in next season’s Champions League, but Mainz are hoping that wealthy clubs – from England for example – join the race.

Napoli reportedly held talks with the Bundesliga side about a deal in the January transfer window.

Since arriving from Lyon two years ago in a club-record €10m deal, Mateta has scored 17 goals in 54 appearances for Mainz.

The Paris-born attacker represented France all the way up to under-21 level.
