Report: Frankfurt prepared to make a play for PSG talent Bitshiabu

German broadcaster "Sport1" is now confirming reports surfacing in other transfer rumor mills that Eintracht Frankfurt are in negotiations with PSG for the transfer of young central defensive talent El Chadaille Bitshiabu.
Germany's "Sport1" claims that Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Markus Krösche is set to work with some of his old contacts at PSG on the possible transfer of 17-year-old center back El Chadaille Bitshiabu. The German broadcaster goes so far as to suggest that Krösche - who once masterminded to the incoming transfer of a then 22-year-old Christopher Nkunku from PSG to Leipzig - has a meeting with his managerial counterparts at the Parisian club today.

Ahead of the coming departure of French defender Evan N'dicka, Krösche has already secured one reinforcement for next year in the form of Ecuadorian center back William Echo Tenorio. Bitshiabu would obviously count as a developmental prospect for the future. The teenage talent has still made 13 appearances for the PSG professionals this season, including one shift off the bench against Bayern in the Champions' League.

Bitshiabu's contract is set to expire at the end of next season, meaning that the French champions will be amenable to cashing in on him this summer. The youngster maintains an estimated market worth of €7 million in the latest transfermarkt listings. RB Salzburg have also been linked with a swoop for him.
