The Bluebirds are believed to close to completing a deal with Heidenheim for the 6' 4 forward who scored a hat trick against Bayern Munich in the cup last season.
It's been reported today that Heidenheim striker Robert Glatzel has travelled to Cardiff for a medical ahead of a move to South Wales for a fee thought to be worth around £5.5m.
Glatzel scored a hat trick against Bayern Munich in a German Cup game last season but his side lost the game 5 - 4 (see video, Glatzel scored Heidenheim's 1st, 3rd and 4th goals).
He also scored a hat trick just over a week ago as Heidenheim beat Middlesbrough 5 - 1 in a pre-season game.
He has been linked with Middlesbrough and Brentford but if today's news is true then he's chosen Cardiff as his new club.
He's 25 and was born in Munich.
