Eintracht Frankfurt not planning major deals in the transfer window

Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Markus Krösche stated that the Bundesliga club are unlikely to be busy in the January transfer window, with no significant movement planned.

“In principle, we are not planning any major changes,” Krösche told the club’s official website. “Of course, players who have played little or not recently at all – such as Jérôme Onguéné – may consider the possibility of a loan. But we are not planning any major transfers. Nevertheless, what always applies in transfer phases applies to the next four weeks, you can never rule anything out.”

Onguéné (25) arrived on a free transfer from RB Salzburg in the summer but is yet to make his debut for Eintracht Frankfurt and has been on the bench just two times in the Bundesliga, due to two significant injuries. A loan for the Cameroonian would make sense to gain match practice.

Krösche’s statement comes after Premier League duo Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur showed interest in signing Randal Kolo Muani, the latter even recently meeting with the Frenchman’s entourage.

Kolo Muani (24) joined Eintracht Frankfurt on a free transfer from Nantes in the summer and has 15 goal contributions (5 goals, 10 assists) in 14 Bundesliga games this season. The Frenchman, who replaced Christopher Nkunku in Didier Deschamps’ France squad, finished with a World Cup runners-up medal and made a significant contribution, scoring against Morocco in the semi-final, and assisting against Argentina in the final.

Before the World Cup, Kolo Muani was offered to Bayern Munich and per Transfermarkt, the Frenchman has a market value of €37m – his current deal expires in 2027.
