Andreas Cornelius has reportedly agreed to join Trabzonspor with a new and improved salary package, after Parma had already accepted a €5m fee.
The Denmark international had been eager to remain in Italy, especially because his wife is expecting a baby soon and he wanted to create more stability for his family.
However, Turkish club Trabzonspor have seemingly convinced Cornelius to make the transfer in a deal worth €5m.
It’s reported the improved contract proposal is worth €2m per year until June 2025, according to transfer pundit Nicolo Schira, while Daniele Longo also suggests a deal is done.
The 28-year-old was signed from Atalanta on a permanent basis for €8.4m after the loan spell, but La Dea are also owed 10 per cent of the selling-on fee.
His previous clubs include FC Copenhagen, Cardiff City and Girondins de Bordeaux.
Cornelius scored only one goal last season in 29 Serie A appearances for Parma, along with five assists, but he had 12 goals in the 2019-20 campaign.
