Been sitting on this for a while now, in hopes of reaching the agent... but that guy seems like the rumor of a ghost. At least to me. Anyhoooo, not only can I confirm this week's German report of Wolfsburg interest in John Anthony Brooks, I can throw Schalke on that (for now) small pile.
However, neither has even come close to being able to compel Hertha Berlin to sit down for transfer talks... yet. And what does spring have to do with it? Well, that's when Hertha will resume efforts to extend his contract (which runs though the summer of 2017). If they fail again, their resolve to hang onto Brooks could dissipate.
