Eintracht Frankfurt are looking to strengthen their squad in the winter transfer window. For central defence, there is now a prominent name on the list.

Frankfurt – Eintracht Frankfurt still have four games to play before the winter break. Coach Dino Toppmöller will be happy when his "tired" players can finally recover. But in preparation for the second half of the season, he could also welcome new faces. Sporting director Markus Krösche and Eintracht Frankfurt are looking for reinforcements.

Germany international Thilo Kehrer could strengthen Eintracht Frankfurt in the winter

One such player could be defender Thilo Kehrer. The Germany international has lost his regular place at Premier League club West Ham United and is only used occasionally. There have only been three short appearances in the league this season. It is therefore not surprising that Kehrer is associated with a departure.

As reported by Sport Bild, Frankfurt are interested in the 27-year-old. Especially for the preferred system with a three-man backline, Eintracht could use another central defender. Tuta, Willian Pacho and Robin Koch almost always play when they are fit. Toppmöller relies less on Hrvoje Smolcic. But Kehrer would also offer additional options for the back four, which the coach has played again and again recently. The flexible sweeper can also play as a full-back.

Kehrer ended up at West Ham United via Paris

Kehrer made his breakthrough in the Bundesliga at FC Schalke 04. In 2018, Paris Saint-Germain paid 37 million euros for him. After four years, most of it as a regular player, he moved to England to West Ham United in the summer of 2022 for twelve million euros. There, he won the European Conference Legaue in his first season.

Since he was able to collect a high annual salary in both Paris and England and his contract runs until 2026, a loan deal for Eintracht seems to be the most likely option.

Will Kehrer return to the national team via Eintracht?

At Eintracht, Kehrer could then aim for the next nomination for the national team. He made his last international appearance in June this year and has not been considered since. Role models could be Mario Götze and Robin Koch. Götze managed to return to the national team at Eintracht. Koch is on the verge of his next call-up and would probably have made his comeback in November if it hadn't been for injury. (jo)
