According to Sky Sport Germany, Arsenal are already in contact with Eintracht Frankfurt over a summer move for Jesper Lindstrom.
The Dane has already told his representatives and Eintracht Frankfurt that he will be looking for a new club at the end of the season if the German club fail to qualify for any European Competition next season.
Arsenal aren’t the only Premier League club making moves to sign the Danish international with Liverpool also showing interest in the Frankfurt midfielder.
The German club will be hoping a bidding war can be sparked between the two English clubs as they look for a fee between £31-35 million this summer.
Eintracht Frankfurt are currently sitting in 6th place in the Bundesliga, which is only enough for Conference League football next season, but Eintracht’s form has dipped over the last few weeks with the German club picking up just five points from their last five games.
One of the standout performers in their side is 23-year old Jesper Lindstrøm, who operates as an attacking midfielder but can also operate on the wings. His biggest attributes are his vision, decision-making and shooting.
So far this season, Lindstrøm has scored nine goals and assisted four in 31 matches in all competitions, with an average rating of 6.98 according to FotMob.
When he heard that Arsenal were interested in him last year, he responded by saying:
“It’s always great to play in the biggest league in the world, but whether Arsenal is right for me is hard to say. Right now, I’m in a good place in Frankfurt, but it’s great that there are clubs like them that are watching me.”
Lindstrøm’s current contract expires in 2026, and if he decides to leave Frankfurt this summer, the German club will be looking for at least €30million for the player.
