Freiburg close to Baptiste Santamaria and Guus Til deals

Freiburg are close to signing midfield duo Guus Til and Baptiste Santamaria, according to reports.

The Bundesliga club recently lost Luca Waldschmidt to Benfica and Robin Koch to Leeds for around €30m in total.

And according to L’Equipe, they are in advanced talks to sign Angers midfielder Santamaria.

Sources close to the negotiations say a deal for 25-year-old Santamaria should be done soon.

However, Angers have released a statement saying Freiburg will have to improve their first offer of €11m, which has been rejected.

Santamaria has been linked with Premier League clubs in the past year, including Burnley, Leicester and Everton.

The talented defensive midfielder has made nearly 150 appearances for Angers since joining from Tours in 2016.

Til due for medical

Freiburg are also signing midfielder Guus Til from Spartak Moscow on a two-year loan deal, Kicker reports.

Til, 22, was of interest to PSV Eindhoven but has chosen to play for SCF in Germany’s top flight.

The Zambia-born midfielder, a one-time Dutch international, is due for a medical at Freiburg ahead of his loan signing.

He is currently nursing an ankle injury but it will not stand in the way of his move to the Schwarzwald-Stadion.
