Hamburger SV are looking to strengthen the defensive backline after the recent departure of first team goalkeeper Julian Pollersbeck to Olympique Lyon in the French Ligue 1.
The second division club who narrowly missed out on promotion to the Bundesliga last season wants to ensure no stone is left on torn as they gear up for another mind boggling season.
As report by Bild, cited by Fussball Transfers, hamburger wants to to sign hoffman from Bayern Munich.
However, the chances of signing hofmann from Bayern looks slim even as the goalkeeper would be looking at a regular role with the second team with the view of catching the attention of Hansi Flick.
The 21-year old played eleven times for FC Bayern Munich second team last season. If he remains with the team, he may likely get the chance to play with the professionals perhaps in Cup games.
At hamburger, there are only two goalkeepers with the professionals. Heuer Fernandes and Tom Mickel, but the club’s hierarchy wants to increase the number to three.
