Eintracht Frankfurt striker Omar Marmoush ‘is being hunted’ by Tottenham ahead of the summer but could cost as much as €50m.

That’s according to SportBILD, who say Frankfurt could end up demanding a top price for their man if they can secure Champions League football.

The magazine explains that Frankfurt will be watching the Champions League final with an added interest this year as if Borussia Dortmund were to win in it, they would be given a Champions League spot for a sixth placed finish in the Bundesliga.

That, in turn, would secure them an extra €25m in revenue alone, plus the ticket sales for at least four home games as well.

That financial injection would help sports director Markus Krösche target reinforcements this summer but also in potential negotiations for players who may be leaving.

Marmoush is one of them, with it explained that he is ‘being hunted by English clubs like Tottenham’ ahead of the summer.

Eintracht Frankfurt have set a €50m asking price on him after his performances this season, he has 16 goals and six assists in 40 games in all competitions, and it would be easier to demand that figure if they had the Champions League cash in the bank.

In other words, that money would make a sale less necessary for them, or it would certainly make them less needy for the money from a sale, and therefore strengthen their negotiating position with the likes of Tottenham.

Whether Spurs would ever pay €50m for the striker is another matter entirely, and we’d suggest they wouldn’t anyway, but they remain on the hunt for him regardless and perhaps keeping their own eye on Dortmund before making their move.
