With his summer exit from VfL Wolfsburg much publicised, it has been revealed that Eintracht Frankfurt will the new home next season for Egyptian striker Omar Marmoush, who will join the Adler on a free transfer after the current campaign.
With Frankfurt set for a considerable rebuild this summer, the 24-year-old looks set to be just one piece in the new puzzle ahead of next season at the Deutsche Bank Park. A raft of key players and the coach are set to leave, but the arrival of Marmoush at least is one bright light.
“In Omar Marmoush, we have signed a player whose abilities will give our attack even greater flexibility,” Eintracht board member for sport Markus Krösche said on revealing the signing. “Omar has already proven his qualities in the Bundesliga, but at the same time, he still has great potential to develop further. We’re pleased that we were able to bring such an exciting and talented player to Eintracht Frankfurt on a free transfer.”
Wolfsburg coach Niko Kovac had been very keen to keep the player beyond his current contract, but the financial aspirations of the player and what the club were prepared to offer were not on the same page and Marmoush’s departure in the summer had been common knowledge since April.
Marmoush joined die Wölfe in 2017 from Wadi Degla and joined the second team first before progressing to the full side. He has had loan spells at both St. Pauli and VfB Stuttgart and this season has scored five Bundesliga goals.
