Jesper Lindstrom is planning his departure from Eintracht Frankfurt, with Arsenal interested in a deal that could be worth around €30m.
German outlet Sport1 report that Jesper Lindstrom is planning his departure from Eintracht Frankfurt and is available for around €30m.
Arsenal are said to be particularly interested in the 23-year-old, and his valuation is considered manageable.
Lindstrom has a deal until 2026, and Frankfurt are willing to cash in, feeling that he’s reached his limit with them.
SportBild recently report that Lindstrom would push for a transfer this summer if Frankfurt failed to qualify for European competition.
Arsenal, Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund, and Italian clubs are all credited with an interest.
As it stands, Frankfurt are in sixth place and in line to qualify for the Europa Conference League.
But even that is in doubt, with all three of the teams behind Frankfurt in better form. Lindstrom’s side only have five points in their last five games, compared to Wolfburg’s eight, Leverkusen’s 10, and Mainz’s 11.
Lindstrom has scored nine goals and assisted four in 31 appearances for Frankfurt this season, largely playing in midfield.
The 23-year-old Denmark international is also capable of playing on the wings, but he’s currently out injured with an ankle problem.
Lindstrom was linked with the Gunners on a few occasions last year, and at the time, the player suggested he was happy to hear the reports.
“It’s a huge confidence boost. It’s one of the biggest things as a footballer, so I’m obviously very happy,” Lindstrom said.
“It’s always great to play in the biggest league in the world, but whether Arsenal is right for me is hard to say. Right now, I’m in a good place in Frankfurt, but it’s great that there are clubs like them that are watching me.
“Something may have to happen at some point, but right now I’m fine.”
