Haji Wright is reportedly being linked to German third-tier side 1860 Munich.
According to Kicker, Munich is after the striker’s services for the 2019-20 season, but financially would be better suited to acquire him on-loan. Wright, 20, is coming off 15-goal haul with both Schalke and the Bundesliga club’s U-23 side this season.
Wright made his Bundesliga debut this season, scoring once in seven senior appearances. He returned to Schalke’s U-23 side in order for consistent playing time and finished with 14 goals and five assists in 22 league matches. Wright helped Schalke’s U-23 side earn promotion.
Wright has also worked his way through the U.S. Soccer ranks, recently appearing twice for the U-23 side in March friendlies. He’s also appeared domestically with Sandhausen during his time in Germany.
Munich finished 12th in the 3. Liga last season, totaling 47 points in 38 matches. Should Wright make the move to 1860 Munich, he will become the club’s second acquisition this summer.
