Swiss international Djibril Sow is among the many players expected to depart Eintracht Frankfurt after the current season concludes. Germany’s main sporting tabloid recently reported that a contract extension isn’t an issue at all for the 26-year-old, who wishes to pursue his deferred dream of playing in the English Premiership.
Britain’s Daily Mirror reports that North London’s Arsenal F.C. – in addition to be the most proactive club in attempting to acquire Sow’s teammate Jesper Lindstrøm – are also actively attempting to procure Sow in order to shore up their midfield ranks for next season. According to the British tabloid, a transfer fee of approximately €15 million is being discussed.
Sow maintains an estimated market worth of €22 million in the latest transfermarkt listings, meaning that Markus Krösche and the SGE administrative team may wish to push for more and that negotiations could drag on for some time. Even if Frankfurt opted to let Sow go for €15 million, the sale would be among the top five outgoing transfers in the history of the club.
