Eintracht contacts Dortmund to inquire about Knauff loan

Germany’s leading sports tabloid reports that Eintracht Frankfurt’s search for additional attacking aid results in a target within the Bundesliga.

Germany’s Sport Bild cites his own internal sources to say that SGE sporting director Markus Krösche has inquired about the possibility of securing a short-term loan from Dortmund’s Ansgar Knauff this winter. As of yet, there is no more concrete information on the status of a possible deal, which would make sense from both sides.

The overall development of 19-year-old Knauff as a player does not appear to match the needs of his current club. Knauff recently secured a promotion in the hierarchy of the German national team with a call-up to the U21s. The youngster has only made one relevant appearance in the league this year. Otherwise, Rose found no use in Knauff other than that of a late, time-killing submarine.

Frankfurt, meanwhile, continues to fight offensively in the league. In the batting corps, newcomers Sam Lammers and Rafael Santos Borré have each scored in the league. Schalke’s returning player Gonçalo Paciencia converted a penalty. Jens Petter Hauge and Filip Kostic scored two goals from midfield positions.

Under the guidance of interim coach Edin Terzic, Knauff put in a much more impactful performance last spring. Eintracht Frankfurt’s search for an additional striker during this winter’s transfer window will almost certainly take the form of a loan. The club appear determined to acquire Randal Kolo Muani in the offseason, but contractual obligations mean that deal will have to wait.
