Francis Amuzu is on the radar of the German Bundesliga side

German Bundesliga club FC Köln are ready to swoop for Belgium under-21 star Francis Amuzu in the January transfer window.

The talented winger was on the verge of joining Köln during the summer, but Anderlecht manager, Vincent Kompany, convinced him to stay as he appended his signature to a new four-year contract.

Despite making his mark anytime he gets the chance to feature, adequate playing time has become less for Amuzu and he will seek a loan move in the winter as he eyes a place in the Belgium under-21 team for the European Championship slated for Slovenia and Hungary.

Graphic Sports Online understands that Köln manager Markus Gisdol is still interested in Amuzu and will get him on loan in January with more playing time assured.

Amuzu, 21, is the son of former Ghana youth international, Theophilus Amuzu, who played for Accra Hearts of Oak and a host of clubs in Belgium.

Born in Accra, Francis moved to Belgium at an early age where he joined the Anderlecht youth system and progressed to the senior side.
