Borussia Dortmund see Eintracht Frankfurt coach Adi Hütter as a possible successor to Lucien Favre, according to the Funke Mediengruppe.
Favre, who is under contract until 2021, will probably at least stay on as BVB coach until the end of the season, at which point Hütter could potentially take over the job.
It all depends on how the rest of the season unfolds, of course, but no matter when Dortmund's search for a new coach will take place, Hütter should be one of the candidates.
The report claims that Hütter made a great impression on the BVB bosses in the 2018/19 campaign - his first season at the club - which saw him guide the club to the Europa League semi-final and a seventh-place finish in the Bundesliga.
This season, Frankfurt are still in the Europa League and the DFB-Pokal, and the Dortmund bosses are said to be impressed with the way Hütter's team are coping with the strenuous demand of playing in multiple competitions at the same time.
Just like Favre, Hütter is under contract until 2021. According to Bild, the Frankfurt coach has a release clause in his contract, but he hasn't thought about leaving the club at this point.
Hütter joined Frankfurt from Young Boys in the summer of 2018.
Favre and Dortmund take on Hütter and Eintracht Frankfurt at home in the Bundesliga tonight.
