Union Berlin in talks for Japan winger Keita Endo

Union Berlin are interested in signing Japan winger Keita Endo and are in talks with his representatives, Kicker reports.

The German publication confirms stories from Japan that Union have eyes on the Yokohama F. Marinos player.

Endo, 22, is a product of the Yokohama youth system and has become a regular in the J.League.

He can play on both flanks but is primarily a left winger.

Capped twice by Japan late last year, Endo has a current market value of €1.3m.

The Bundesliga is a hotspot for Japanese players to arrive in Europe and Endo could soon follow that path.

Union Berlin have had two players from Japan on their books in the past.

In the 2005-06 season, Yuzuru Okuyama made seven league appearances for the club.

And more recently, full-back Atsuto Uchida played two games for Union in the second half of the 2017-18 campaign.

25/7 UPDATE:

Endo has officially joined Union on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy.
