Bayer 04 sign keeper from Kaiserslautern

Bayer 04 Leverkusen have signed Germany U21 international Lennart Grill for the start of next season. The 21-year-old joins the Werkself from third division FC Kaiserslautern. He has penned a deal to 30 June 2024.

Lennart Grill has played every game for the former big club from the Palatinate in 2019/20. The shot-stopper, born in Idar-Oberstein, has played for every Germany youth team since first playing at U16 level.

"Highly talented goalkeeper"

"We've been able to sign a very interesting and highly talented goalkeeper in Lennart Grill," said sporting director Simon Rolfes in commenting on the transfer. "It's a long-term signing and Lennart has great prospects. We are very happy we’ve been able to persuade him to join us," said Rolfes.
The move to Leverkusen is, according to Grill, "a big step forward to a top German team. I've watched a lot of Bayer 04 games up to the season being suspended. As a spectator, it was great fun watching their high tempo, possession football," Grill declared. "Bayer 04 Leverkusen are a club with European ambition and I'm happy to soon be part of it."
