It's already been announced that Daichi Kamada will leave Eintracht Frankfurt when his contract expires this summer, but it's still unclear what his next club will be.

What seems clear, however, is that he will not be joining Borussia Dortmund, with Bild reporting that the Japan international has turned down the BVB as he wants to move to another league.

The German tabloid claims that Atletico Madrid have emerged as the favorites to sign him, but Manchester United, Chelsea and FC Barcelona have also been mentioned as suitors.

Kamada, 26, has scored 13 goals and provided five assists in 38 appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt this season.
