Stuttgart, Mainz & Hoffenheim locked in 3-way battle for Mathieu Kambala

L’Équipe report that 18-year-old Metz defensive midfielder Mathieu Kambala is soliciting interest from three German clubs, who have all made contact: Mainz, Stuttgart and Hoffenheim.

Kambala’s youth contract with Les Grenats expires next month – known for his aggressive intercepting style and canny ability to recover balls, he has attracted serious Bundesliga interest.

Kambala has a professional contract proposal from Metz, but will likely reject it.
