Poaching Eintracht Frankfurt at Europa League opponents?

According to media reports, Eintracht Frankfurt has already signed two free transfers for the coming season – a third could follow soon.

Sports director Markus Krösche is increasingly earning the reputation of a bargain hunter at Eintracht Frankfurt. With attacker Randal Kolo Muani (FC Nantes) and defender Jérôme Onguéné (RB Salzburg), two professionals with expiring contracts are said to have already spoken to SBU. To “sports1“But it shouldn’t stop with information.

According to the portal, the Hessians have their eye on Portuguese full-back Aurélio Buta from Royal Antwerp. In the group stage of the Europa League, Eintracht made close acquaintance with the 24-year-old, who was one of the most conspicuous players in the Frankfurt duel with the Belgian first division team.

In mid-October, however, a muscle injury threw the former junior international off course, and Buta has been out for almost four months.

All the more annoying for the defender, who recently could not recommend himself for a new contract in Antwerp.

Eintracht Frankfurt before a change in defense

Irrespective of this, the fast right foot on the Main should continue to be an issue. Danny da Costa’s working paper expires in the summer, and Erik Durm and Almamy Touré are also said to be allowed to leave. So there could be an acute need in the rear right.

Aurélio Buta comes from the youth ranks of top Lisbon club Benfica, but moved to Belgium at the age of 20. There he completed 122 games for Royal Antwerpen (two goals, 20 assists).

Observers describe the allegedly courted winger as extremely enthusiastic, but sometimes a little careless in defense. He still seems to have impressed Eintracht Frankfurt.
