News report indicate that, Cordoba joined Mainz for Cologne in June as Modeste went on loan to Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjian.
However, the former Envigado, Chiapas, Querétaro and Granada striker, the Colombian has big shoes to fill, with Modeste netting 25 goals last season.
Cordoba managed just five himself in the Bundesliga last season but says he feels no pressure to perform and will play his own way.
He said: "I never had pressure on me at Mainz. I know that Modeste scored plenty of goals but I’m here to be myself and do it my way, so there’s no pressure on me there.
He added: "I want to score a lot of goals, though. If I can do that then the team should finish in a good position, and hopefully even better than last season".
