On the final day of the transfer window, 1. FC Union Berlin have strengthened their attacking options with the signing of 22-year-old striker Petar Musa, who joins on loan from Czech side Slavia Prague.
The striker, who will wear the number 24 in Köpenick, arrives with international pedigree having played for Croatia’s under-21 national team on eight occasions. Born in Zagreb, Musa switched to Slavia Prague in 2017 and went out on loan almost immediately to Viktoria Zizkov. He scored 12 goals in 37 games on loan before hitting another 11 on loan for Slovan Liberec. He returned to Slavia in January 2020 and has scored 11 goals in 35 matches for the Czech giants.
"I’m happy that the transfer to Union has gone through and I can’t wait to play in the Bundesliga," said the Croatian striker. "The team is having a great season so far and I want to help the guys be as successful as they can. I think I can integrate quickly and want to be on the pitch as soon as possible."
"With Petar Musa, we are closing up the whole in our forward positions and we are now adequately resourced with him. We are looking forward to seeing an exciting young player," said Oliver Ruhnert, Director of Professional Football at 1. FC Union Berlin.
