Rumors surfacing over the weekend with regard to a summer Bundesliga move for Austrian winger Marco Grüll have been confirmed. SV Werder Bremen unveiled the 25-year-old as a new signing for the forthcoming 2024/25 campaign on Monday afternoon. The SK Rapid Wien professional joins the Hanseaten on a free transfer following the expiration of his current contract. Terms of Grüll’s new contract were not disclosed.
“We have been following Marco’s progress for quite some time,” SV licensing head Clemens Fritz noted in a club statement, “He has developed very well over the past few years and has aroused interest on the transfer market – not least during the last transfer phase. We are therefore delighted that we were able to convince Marco of our sporting concept and his prospects with us and that he will strengthen our team.”
“Marco is an active and straightforward attacking player who has proven his ability to score goals in recent years and is also a good assist provider,” SV trainer Ole Werner added, “I am convinced that he will integrate very well into our team and can continue his positive development with us.”
“It’s a great honor for me to be able to wear the SV Werder Bremen jersey from the summer and to be part of this team,” Grüll himself said, “I’m ready to give my best and continue my positive development to help the team achieve its objectives.”
