Eintracht Frankfurt are earning a growing reputation for elite talent identification. This summer saw Luka Jović and Sebastien Haller leave the German club for a combined £105 million. They had signed both strikers for £6.3 million each.
Frankfurt aren’t looking to become a selling club, but the turnover in profit from just two players is quite staggering. The German side will instead be looking to build on last season’s seventh-place finish. They came only four points short of fourth-place Bayer Leverkusen, who claimed the last Champions League spot. They also came incredibly close to a place in the Europa League final, losing on penalties to eventual winners Chelsea in the semi-final.
Although they are yet to replace their two strikers, Frankfurt have gone quietly about adding to their squad this summer. The most intriguing of their signings, is that of 22-year-old Swiss international, Djibril Sow. This tactical analysis and scout report will look into the midfielder’s prowess at former club BSC Young Boys, and evaluate his potential impact for Eintracht Frankfurt.
Djibril Sow’s career so far
Despite spending most of his youth career in Switzerland, Sow moved to Borussia Mönchengladbach as an 18-year-old. However, after spending the majority of his two years at the club in the reserves, he decided to move back to Switzerland, and sign with BSC Young Boys.
