Hamburg aim for long-term deal with 'super talent' Jann-Fiete Arp

Jann-Fiete Arp action Germany U17
Jann-Fiete Arp has six goals in three matches at the Under-17 European Championship.

Hamburg hope to tie 17-year-old attacker Jann-Fiete Arp to a long-term contract amid links with moves to Chelsea, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund.

Germany under-17 forward Arp has scored 28 goals in 25 games for Hamburg's U17 and U19 teams, netting six in three matches for his country at the Under-17 European Championship.

He trained with Hamburg's senior team in the winter and his rapid progress has seen a number of clubs reported to be monitoring him, with his contract expiring next year.

But agent Jurgen Milewski rejected rumours of a potential switch to Borussia Dortmund, saying: "That's not true."

And speaking ahead of his side's weekend match at Schalke, Hamburg coach Markus Gisdol told a news conference: "He's a super talent and we need to keep him long term.

"He can become a great player. I am not surprised a bit that players of the same age at the European Championships can't stop him."

Sporting director Jens Todt added that the club were "making great efforts to keep Jann-Fiete here."

Meanwhile, Hamburg -- who remain in danger of relegation from the Bundesliga -- said they had fulfilled the licensing requirements for the next Bundesliga or 2 Bundesliga season.

"We have taken the necessary measures to receive the playing license," executive Frank Wettstein told the club's official website.

Hamburg said local billionaire Klaus-Michael Kuhne had agreed to inject more money into the club.

With two matches left, Hamburg are in the relegation playoff place and have a four-point lead over Ingolstadt in a direct relegation spot.
