By Peter Vice

Less than a year after the former VfL Wolfsburg striker returned to the Bundesliga, it appears as if the Hesseners are in negotiations to sell the 31-year-old Dutch international.

Reports surfacing in the Dutch newspaper “Algemeen Dagblad” indicate that Club Brugge are currently in negotiations with Eintracht Frankfurt for the purchase of 31-year-old striker Bas Dost. The Belgian club are said to be prepared to “go to great lengths” in the interest of getting the transfer finalized.


Dost arrived in Hessen at the deadline of last autumn’s transfer window, a last minute addition sporting directors Fredi Bobic and Bruno Hübner were prepared to shell out €7 million for. Though he got off to a good start for the SGE, injuries precluded him from making the sort of sustainable impact the club had hoped for. He finished the 2019/20 campaign with ten goals in thirty appearences in all competitions.

German website LigaInsider notes that one of the selling points Brugge may use to lure Dost relates to the fact that the Belgians have qualified for the UEFA Champions League. Frankfurt fell short of qualifying for Europe once again over the course of a calendar year that saw them play nearly 70 fixtures.

According to website “hr-Sport”, Dost’s consulting agencies declines to either confirm or deny rumors of deal in the works. This implies that negotiations are ongoing.
