Arsenal and Liverpool interested in Eintracht Frankfurt’s Hugo Larsson

Bild reports that Arsenal and Liverpool are both interested in one of the surprise packages from this season, Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Hugo Larsson.

Larsson only joined Frankfurt in the summer from Malmo for €9m and he was bought for the future and was meant to be slowly integrated into the team but the 19-year-old has already made himself a key part of Frankfurt’s midfield with strong performances against Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. 

However, Larsson has a contract at Frankfurt until 2028 without a release clause, and as Frankfurt will likely not want to give the Swede up after a year, they could demand a lot of money. Frankfurt believes that with Larsson’s potential, they can eventually sell him for €80m. 

Premier League sides Arsenal and Liverpool are both reportedly interested in Larsson. This follows a similar report that suggests that the same teams are also interested in Larsson’s teammate, Ecuadorian defender William Pacho
