Eintracht Frankfurt have a concrete interest in signing Jens Petter Hauge and may have already made a suitable offer, a journalist has claimed.
The Norwegian’s future with the Rossoneri is hanging in the balance. Despite impressing in his first season particularly during the first half of the campaign, the amount of playing time he got under Stefano Pioli dropped off after Christmas, which did not help his development.
This has led to speculation that he could be sold for a capital gain after less than a year, to help finance other signings too. Sky (via MilanNews) are reporting that Eintract Frankfurt have targeted Hauge, but the asking price from Milan is holding back the negotiations between the two clubs for the time being because the Diavolo want €12m guaranteed to sell.
MilanNews spoke with Bild journalist Urlika Sickenberger about the situation surrounding Hauge and Eintracht’s level of interest in the player.
In the last few days, the news of Hauge at Eintracht has rebounded in Italy. What information do you have on this deal?
“It’s true, Eintracht are definitely interested in Hauge. The departures that the club will have to deal with have led to focus on young and prospective profiles just like the Norwegian.”
What would the terms of the agreement be? In Italy they are talking about an offer of €7m plus bonuses…
“The figures are quite similar. The fixed part should be around 8 million euros with possible bonuses that could reach 4 million. This offer could be the right one for the agreement between the parties.”
Do you think Hauge can adapt to the Bundesliga?
“As far as I have seen this season at Milan, I think we can adapt perfectly to both the Bundesliga and Eintracht. He could be the new Kostic, a player who should leave Frankfurt and on whom there is the interest of Roma and Inter. Kostic, without a doubt, would be a perfect top player for Milan too.”
