Eintracht Frankfurt have announced that they have completed the signing of Egyptian international Omar Marmoush on a free transfer from Wolfsburg.
Marmoush will sign a contract at Frankfurt until 2027. The move will bring an end to his six-year association with Wolfsburg having joined the club in 2017. During this time at Wolfsburg he spent two years on loan at St Pauli and VfB Stuttgart.
Sporting director Markus Krösche commented on the signing of Marmoush: “With Omar Marmoush, we were able to sign a player who will give our offensive even more flexibility through his abilities. Omar has already proven his qualities in the Bundesliga and at the same time has great development potential. We are glad that we were able to win such an exciting and talented player free of charge for Eintracht Frankfurt.”
Marmoush’s time at Wolfsburg came to an end as no agreement could be reached on a salary when it came to a new deal. Wolfsburg had reportedly offered 4x times the amount that the 24-year-old was earning plus a signing on bonus.
The 24-year-old can play across the attacking line, either as a striker or a winger. It is possible that Marmoush will be one of the replacements for Daichi Kamada who is to leave the club at the end of the season. This season the Egyptian has scored six times and assisted once as Wolfsburg battle for a European place.
