Eintracht Frankfurt is apparently stuck with several potential change candidates in the transfer window that closes on Monday.
After Danny da Costa’s transfer to Hertha BSC collapsed, according to media reports, Aymen Barkok will probably remain at Eintracht Frankfurt.
According to “Bild” and “Sky”, the 23-year-old midfielder agrees with league rival FSV Mainz 05 about a change at the latest after his contract expires in the summer.
In the end, however, the SBU refused to allow the homegrown team to leave immediately for Rheinhessen.
Eintracht Frankfurt: FSV Mainz 05 wanted Aymen Barkok on a free transfer
Background: Mainz did not want to transfer a transfer fee to Eintracht even in the event of a winter transfer. Against this background, both clubs ended the talks that had initially been started.
Barkok is returning to Frankfurt after the quarter-finals with Morocco against Egypt at the Africa Cup of Nations and will continue to play with the eagle on his chest in the second half of the season – at least if coach Oliver Glasner puts his trust in him more often than in the previous season .
So far, Barkok has only played a meager 180 minutes under the Austrian trainer. His statistics for the current season include six mostly short appearances in the Bundesliga, Europa League and DFB Cup.
Since 2013 with a break at Eintracht Frankfurt
So it’s no wonder that the Frankfurt native and his training club will definitely go their separate ways in the summer. Because then nothing stands in the way of Barkok’s move to Mainz for free.
Barkok had switched from the offspring of Kickers Apparently to the Frankfurt youth department in 2013. Between 2018 and 2020 he was loaned to Fortuna Düsseldorf.
