Eintracht Frankfurt is about to take over striker Randal Kolo Muani for next season transfer-free from FC Nantes. According to information from SPOX and GOAL, they have already agreed a five-year contract until 2027, with the signing expected to take place in the coming weeks.
Frankfurt signaled interest in the 23-year-old Frenchman a year ago and at the time was the first club to make an official offer in Nantes. The Ligue 1 club refused and wanted to sell Kolo Muani to Watford FC last summer, but nothing came of it either.
In addition to Watford, before the current season, according to information from SPOX and GOAL many other well-known clubs on the striker. From the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen have expressed interest. Liverpool, Tottenham and Southampton attracted from England, while the Italian top clubs Atalanta Bergamo and AC Milan also gave up feelers to Kolo Muani.
It is expected that Frankfurt will now win the contract. The former France U21 international’s contract in Nantes expires at the end of the season, so no transfer fee is due.
Kolo Muani comes from the youth of Nantes and celebrated his breakthrough in the first team last season. In the current season, he currently stands with seven goals and three assists in 18 Ligue 1 appearances.
