1. FC Köln: Motor and machine: Cologne is not allowed to sell this Ellyes Skhiri!

Ellyes Skhiri (26) is not a guy who talks about the bush. In the summer, the Tunisian declared quite openly that he would leave Cologne if there was a suitable offer. The transfer failed. Skhiri continued to train professionally and promised performance. And now delivering …

Model professional and one-on-one machine: Cologne is not allowed to sell this Skhiri!

There are plenty of reasons: week after week he performs well, runs an average of 12.5 km per game and tirelessly straddles the field (67 percent won duels). Skhiri is always fair – only made six fouls. On top of that, he’s dangerous …

Cologne’s midfield racer scored three goals in the last two games. Skhiri made his last goal against Fürth (3: 1) after a sprint from penalty area to penalty area. In the 89th minute!

FC defense chief Rafael Czichos (30): “Ellyes is the greatest professional I know!”

And there lies the problem: Skhiri’s top performances are causing a stir in the league and abroad. His busy advisor Fali Ramadani would have preferred to sell the player in the summer. According to BILD information, FC FC was toying with a possible winter change for Skhiris for economic reasons.

As Cologne’s model professional recently said in an interview with BILD: “My situation will definitely be clear next summer, because my contract expires in 2023 – you either extend it or switch.”

BILD says: FC cannot sell this Skhiri!
