Sky Germany's Max Bielefeld reports that at least one avenue has opened on the matter of Amin Younes' wish to depart Frankfurt. 

In other Frankfurt news, it can be confirmed that the SGE hasn't given up its pursuit of Norwegian winger Jens Petter Hauge. 

German footballing magazine Kicker also links Marcus Thuram's younger brother Khephren with Eintracht.

Amin Younes may soon get his transfer wish. This is according to Sky Germany reporter Jens Petter Hauge. Unhappy with his current salary level, the 27-year-old has reportedly asked Frankfurt not to activate the purchase clause that could see him permanently move to the Bundesliga from club SSC Napoli.

Bielefeld notes that an offer from Saudi Arabia may soon allow Younes to depart Germany's commercial capital. The German journalist further notes that the SGE are still working on a deal to purchase winger Jens Petter Hauge from AC Milan. Frankfurt have already had a lowball bid for the 21-year-old rejected by the Serie A club.

Hauge's agent--Atta Aenke--recently confirmed that talks were still ongoing when asked about the subject after a Milan. The player's representative noted "there is a dialogue." Germany's main sporting tabloid reports that the two clubs are getting closer after Frankfurt's initial €7 million bid and AC Milan's €15 million price.

Aenke spoke to members of the press after Milan played an exhibition match against OGC Nice on Saturday evening. German footballing magazine Kicker links another player involved in that fixture with Frankfurt. Namely, Marcus Thuram's younger brother Khephren Thuram with Eintracht.

It's important to note that both Hauge and Thuram are valued at about €9.0 million. Frankfurt wouldn't pocket any money on Younes' departure as it would be a simple matter of terminating his loan arrangement.
