This German report from last night mentions England, and then later adds Italy and Spain at the end, as places with sprouted interest in 1860 Munich forward Bobby Wood. I can now confirm he does, in fact, have multiple potential bidders from outside Germany - where Fortuna Düsseldorf, Bundesliga risers Ingolstadt, Kaiserslautern, Union Berlin and perhaps one or two others still have standing offers. Honestly, I am not sure if Stuttgart are still around, but it has seemed rather quiet over there. I also cannot personally confirm Braunschweig, but they have been name-dropped often in the german press.
So... I cannot yet throw a thumbs up or The Offside Flag on any of those three countries listed by TZ or pinpoint any club names, but then I only started trying an hour ago. Any way you slice it, the Wood crowd has definitely grown wider, in every sense of the word. Obviously, an English suitor would carry the weight of work permit concerns. A full MLSS report, hopefully with more specifics, will go up at some point today.
