After Benjamin Goller, Nicolai Rapp from SV Werder Bremen could also move to the 2nd Bundesliga. The midfielder is said to be a candidate at 1. FC Kaiserslautern. Rapp does not have any real prospects in Bremen.
With clever transfers, Werder managed to get a lot out of little money. The promoted team ended the first half of the season in a remarkable ninth place. In January there will therefore probably be no new signings. Instead, the squad should be thinned out and the petty cash increased.
On Sunday, Werder was able to announce that the move had already been completed: Benjamin Goller, who has not played in the first team this season, is moving to 1. FC Nürnberg. Goller's contract would have expired at the end of the season, so Werder could at least make some money out of the 23-year-old and save his salary. With Nicolai Rapp, another Werderer is about to leave the House of Commons. As the image reports, 1. FC Kaiserslautern would like to sign the midfielder. The 25-year-old has only played 67 competitive minutes for Werder this season and may well leave the club in January. A clarifying conversation about his future should take place before Christmas. Lautern's interest in Rapp has definitely grown after Florian Flick moved from Schalke 04 to 1. FC Nürnberg, the Red Devils also wanted to loan Flick out. "He canceled the day after our conversation," revealed head coach Dirk Schuster of the picture. So it's quite possible that Nicolai Rapp will now be more in focus. It is not clear whether Lautern is aiming for a loan or a permanent purchase from the Bremen midfielder. Rapp's contract with Werder runs until 2024.
