According to latest news from Germany – from outlet Sport1, Eintracht Frankfurt are scouting the potential signing of Spanish youngster Fabio Blanco, who plays as a winger for Valencia’s U19 team.


Blanco’s Valencia contract expires at the end of the current Liga season on Spain, on June 2021, and a free transfer from the club is on the cards.

Being just 17-years-old, Blanco is technically mature for his young age, capable of being effective from the right-wing but also capable of operating as an inverted winger. The Valencia youth academy product is dynamic, agile and pacey – drawing comparisons with Manchester City’s Ferran Torres & Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.

He will initially be inducted in the Frankfurt U19 team, if a transfer does materialize.

Earlier this year, in March, Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported Bayern Munich & Borussia Dortmund as interested Bundesliga clubs for the Valencia talent.

Along with the aforementioned clubs, Chelsea, AC Milan, Barcelona & Real Madrid are also said to be scouting him.

Olympique de Marseille are also said to strong contenders along with Frankfurt, but the German club are frontrunners.

If Frankfurt lure Fabio Blanco, he will be the seventh Spaniard in the club’s history to don the colors.
