Cologne have joined the chase to sign Brazilian striker Ailton.
Cologne have joined the chase to sign former Werder Bremen and Schalke star Ailton.
The Brazilian is believed to be currently unhappy at Turkish side Besiktas and has fallen out with new coach Jean Tigana.
A move back to Germany seems to be in the offing and Cologne look set to join the hunt for his signature alongside Borussia Dortmund.
"We will be meeting with [Cologne president] Wolfgang Overath in Cologne on Monday," Ailton's agent Angelos Moraitis told Express.
"Ailton sees his future back in the Bundesliga and Cologne is a good location."
Dortmund have already confirmed their interest in a possible loan move for Ailton after losing Jan Koller, Cedric van der Gun and Lars Ricken to damaged cruciate ligaments.
