Reported Wolverhampton Wanderers target John Cordoba is yet to agree a contract extension with Cologne amid speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League.
The striker is being touted for a switch to England this summer having enjoyed the best season of his career so far.
Cordoba scored 13 goals in 29 appearances for Cologne, who finished 14th in the Bundesliga.
Reports from German outlet Express have credited Wolves with an interest in the Colombian forward, 27.
They reported earlier this month that a fee of 20m euros (£18m) would be enough to secure Cordoba, who joined Cologne from Mainz three years ago.
The club’s general manager Horst Heldt said earlier this month that Cordoba had rejected the offer of a new contract at the RheinEnergieStadion.
“We made an offer to Jhon,” said Heldt. “That has been checked and his advisor Christian Wein has informed us that it is unsatisfactory and will therefore not be accepted.”
The player, who has just 12 months left to run on his current deal, has now spoken out about his future.
“I have one more year of contract, I am still here and I am calm,” he told Antena2. “We will see what happens.
“They have treated me very well, I am very grateful and everyone has done their part. I leave everything external to my representative and the sporting director here, they are the ones who have to agree (on an extension).”
