Concurring media reports now assert that Eintracht Frankfurt and former FC Bayern München assistant coach Dino Toppmöller have now reached an agreement in principle for 42-year-old to succeed Oliver Glasner as the new SGE trainer.
German broadcast "Sport1" and tabloid "Sport Bild" both confirm the report. The former source notes that Toppmöller will be bringing colleague Xaver Zembrod along with him as a new assistant while the latter claims that FC Bayern München will receive a modest €500,000 transfer free for the still under-contract Nagelsmann assistant. Frankfurt were among the clubs that Toppmöller's father, Klaus, coached during his long trainer career. This will be the younger Toppmöller's first head-coaching assignment.
