Eintracht Frankfurt is looking for reinforcements for the offensive, and above all wants international experience for the attack to participate in the Champions League. Ex-Wolfsburg Wout Weghorst could fit – also thanks to a resourceful clause in his contract.
Champions League instead of second division: In the search for reinforcements for the attack, Champions League participant Eintracht Frankfurt is targeting former Wolfsburg player Wout Weghorst (29), according to information from “Bild”. The Dutch international has been relegated from the English Premier League with Burnley FC.
Short, compact, clear
Bundesliga return after half a year? Weghorst only left the Bundesliga for England in January 2022 after three and a half years at VfL Wolfsburg for 14 million euros. In 144 competitive games he had scored 70 goals and 22 games for the Wolves, at Burnely he had two goals and three assists in 20 competitive games.
Contract clause as an opportunity for Frankfurt: Weghorst had a clause guaranteed in his Burnley contract that would allow him to be loaned out in the event of relegation. A cheap alternative for Eintracht, the Leverkusen striker Lucas Alario (29) with an exit clause of seven million euros is likely to be too expensive.
