Hannover 96 winger Linton Maina is closing in on a move to Wolfsburg.

According to Kicker, Maina is close to agreeing personal terms with the Wolves for a move to the Volkswagen Arena.

Hannover and Wolfsburg are however yet to agree on a fee for Maina. The 21-year-old who has Kenyan roots has also been linked with Bundesliga sides Borussia Mönchengladbch and VfB Stuttgart.

Hannover are understood to be holding out for a fee in the double-digit million Euro range while Wolfsburg are hoping to be able to sign Maina for around €5 million plus bonuses.

“Maina is an interesting player, but only under the right conditions and not for a transfer fee of €10 million or more,” Wolfsburg boss Jörg Schmadtke recently said.

“We’re not in fantasy land!” he added.

Maina made his professional debut for Hannover 96 on 18 March 2018, coming on as a substitute for Marvin Bakalorz on matchday 27 of the 2017–18 season of the Bundesliga in a 0–1 away loss against Borussia Dortmund.

Having been born to a Kenyan father and a German mother, Maina is still eligible to play for Harambee Stars.

He has already turned out for Germany’s U16, U17, U18 and U19.

He was once linked with a move to Manchester United.
