Amiri on his way to CFC Genoa

Nadiem Amiri is not really happy at Bayer Leverkusen and his prospects are difficult. The 25-year-old could leave the factory club for Italy. Some media are already reporting that it is ready; but nothing has been solved yet.

Nadiem Amiri and Bayer Leverkusen: A year ago it was a relationship that was under a lucky star. He was one of the protagonists of the strong first half of the season under coach Peter Bosz. Between October 2020 and January 2021; he prepared six goals in ten games and scored two himself; one of which was even Goal of the Month. At 1:2 in Frankfurt; the attacking midfielder scored the 1:0 with a heel trick after taking the ball – through the legs of Kevin Trapp. After that; however; the descent of the Ludwigshafen resident began; who could leave Bayer during this winter break; according to various media reports. The Italian first division team CFC Genoa should be of serious importance.

some media in Italy reported Thursday that Amiri had already arrived for the medical examination and that the transfer was almost in order. According to information from our editors; this is not true. But that doesn’t change the seriousness of the rumours. Because Amiri with his current situation in Leverkusen are not satisfied – and Genoa urgently needs reinforcements in the Serie A relegation battle. The club is in the penultimate place in the ranking for the 22nd match day. After only three points from nine league matches; there is also speculation that coach Andriy Shevchenko will be replaced. Bayer’s former coach Bruno Labbadia (2008 to 2009) is considered a candidate for the position.

In the summer of 2019; Amiri came from his training club TSG Hoffenheim Rhineland – at the then notorious spot price of nine million euros. After a solid first season; the highlights followed in the first half of 2020/21; which came to an abrupt end shortly after the turn of the year and his goal of the month. He contracted the coronavirus in January and at the same time; the Werkself started a remarkable downward spiral that cost Bosz his job in March. The midfielder initially played regularly under interim coach Hannes Wolf; but Amiri was unable to regain his old form. At the end of the messy season; it was only enough for short assignments.

In short; nothing has changed in its weakness of form to this day. Under coach Gerardo Seoane; the 25-year-old didn’t have it easy from the start. The Swiss repeatedly emphasized his appreciation for Amiri; but given the enormous competition in midfield; the five-time German international was only used sporadically. – and when he was in the starting eleven; he could not convince lastingly.

In Florian Wirtz; Kerem Demirbay; Robert Andrich; Charles Aránguiz; Exequiel Palacios and Amine Adli; there are a number of players in the squad who could qualify for central positions. Although Amiri is more of an attacking midfielder; he can also play as a six. The fact that he rarely gets his turn is also due to the fact that he lacks the excellent speed to be a good alternative on the wings; for example.

Wirtz is also in the attacking midfield; and summer signing Adli is now a step ahead in the internal hierarchy – precisely because he is currently much better at combining speed; technique and goal threat. Bayer also has two players in the defensive midfield. To top it off; Amiri’s second Covid 19 infection is currently coming up; although he has already recovered; been vaccinated twice and given a boost. The required transfer fee for the Werkself pro would amount to around nine million euros. A decision could be made by the weekend.
