Eintracht Frankfurt are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Young Boys centre-back Aurele Amenda.


According to Sky Germany, the two clubs are close to agreeing on a fee in the region of €8-10 million.

Amenda himself is said to be keen on joining Eintracht, with the move likely to be completed this month.

With the deal for Amenda said to be close, Hrvoje Smolcic could be heading for the exit door at Deutsche Bank Park if the right offer comes in.

The Croatian central defender has seen limited playing time this season, with Robin Koch, Pacho and Tuta the preferred trio at the back for Eintracht coach Dino Toppmöller.
