Bild reports that Eintracht Frankfurt are currently working on signing a replacement for the departed Randal Kolo Muani this winter.
Frankfurt’s have a list of potential striking options that could replace PSG’s new striker. One option is Santos’ Marcos Leonardo, the 20-year-old has scored nine goals in 18 games for the Brazilian side, Leonardo is currently valued at €17m.
Another option is Red Bull Salzburg’s Karim Konaté, the 19-year-old has scored six in 11 games this season and even has Champions League experience with the Austrian champions. Although Konaté is currently valued cheaper than Leonardo at €15m, his European experience will likely mean Frankfurt may have to pay slightly more.
Other potential candidates are Gift Orban of KAA Gent or Jørgen Strand Larsen of Celta Vigo. Whoever Frankfurt aim to sign, they are expected to make a bid for one of their targets soon and are likely to be unrestricted by price having sold Kolo Muani in the summer for €95m.
