Toppmoller is looking to find a new striker and sees the Hamburg-raised Klasnic, who has formerly represented HSV's rivals FC St.Pauli, as an ideal partner for Argentine forward Bernardo Romeo.

Werder have already lost prolific Brazilian Ailton to big-spending Schalke 04 for next season and they will now face a difficult task to keep hold of Klasnic with Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund and other teams closely following developments.

Hamburg are also said to have set their sights on Lubeck striker Ferydoon Zandi.

The young German of Iranian descent has been one of the stars of Bundesliga Zwei this term and his 10 goals for newly-promoted Lubeck have reportedly caught the attention of several top-flight teams.

Hamburg coach Toppmoller is now the latest willing buyer after meeting Zandi and his agent for talks before Christmas.

The Rothosen have join Rostock, Hannover, Monchengladbach and 1860 Munich in the race for the 24-year-old's signature.

Zandi's current contract at Lubeck is valid until June 2005, but contains a clause allowing him to leave at the end of this season for a fee of around €400,000.

Klasnic won't leave Bremen imho. At the moment, he is doing everything to increase his wages in his next contract, so he welcomes other clubs with an interest in him and uses them to put the pressure on Werder to give him the money he demands .... I don't think that Werder will let him go after they already lost Ailton and Kristajic.
Zandi will join Hamburg or Hannover. He always states that HSV is the club he likes most an that he was always a Hamburg fan, on the other hand, he said in an interview that his main goal is to find a club where he can play on a regular basis - in Hamburg he would enter a heavy competition for the midfield spots which suit him ( playmaker or left ..) while in Hannover, he would have his place in the team assured.
